A JEWEL-OF-A-THEATRE . . . EASY TO GET TO - EASY TO LOVE!

The multi-million dollar Glenridge Performing Arts Center on Palmer Ranch is the newest and brightest jewel-of-a-theater in Sarasota, Florida. From its picturesque setting to its elegant, yet modern interior design, it is destined to be a major player in the area's repertoire of performance venues.  The GPAC plays a huge role in the Life Fulfilling Community model because it provides members with an opportunity for lifelong learning and continuing involvement in the community.  Features of the GPAC include:

  • An intimate 260-seat auditorium
  • A $750,000 state-of-the-art lighting and sound system
  • A proscenium stage
  • Two large dressing rooms with showers
  • Wheelchair accessibility
  • Headsets for the hearing impaired
  • Lectern
  • Freshly baked cookies at intermission (wine, too)
  • Large multi-purpose movie screen
  • A brand-new Schimmel grand piano

The venue is also one of the few facilities in the Sarasota area available for professional presentations.
