American Stage is the Tampa Bay area's only professional regional equity theater. It presents its six-play Mainstage Series in its brand new, 182-seat Raymond James Theatre, across from Williams Park in downtown St. Petersburg. Other productions include the “After Hours” Series, School Tour, and camps and classes for children. American Stage is also known for its springtime American Stage in the Park (also known as Shakespeare in the Park), which was launched in 1986. In 2005, it began staging shows other than Shakespeare under the stars at Demens Landing.

The new theater, built in cooperation with St. Petersburg College, contains approximately 40 more seats than its old venue, plus two large lobbies with 10 accessible restrooms. Ticket prices vary according to day and time. Some performances offer "pay what you can" at the door, or reduced advance pricing. Also, check the theater's website for a list of nearby restaurants offering discounts to patrons. The Historic Courtyard by Mariott and the Vinoy resort offer discounts on hotel rooms.

During performances, patrons can park for free in the Synovus Bank, located one block up 3rd Street at 333 Third Ave. N. St. Petersburg College's parking garage is open to patrons for $5 on Friday night, Saturdays and Sundays and is located next to the theater on Second Avenue North. Along with street parking, there are two other garages within walking distance.

American Stage was founded as The Palisades Theatre Company in 1977. It became American Stage in 1981 and, in 1984, became the Tampa Bay area's first non-profit theater company to operate under a full contract with Actors' Equity Association.
