Ferguson Hall is one of the large theaters at the Straz Center. Downtown Tampa's dazzling performing arts venue sits on nine acres on the east bank of Hillsborough River. The 330,000-square-foot complex contains five theaters offering one of the nation's best Broadway touring series, grand opera, concerts and a variety of events and performances.

The five individual theaters are: Carol Morsani Hall (2,610 seats), Ferguson Hall (1,042 seats), the Jaeb Theater (268 seats), the TECO Energy Foundation Theater (250 seats) and the Shimberg Playhouse (130 seats).

You can dine before the performance on site at Maestro's Restaurant (buffett, upstairs from the Jaeb Theater; opened for Broadway series, opera and selected events), Maestro's Cafe (in Carol Morsani Hall lobby) or Maestro's On The River (near the fountains). The restaurant also offers late night dining (menu service) on Friday and Saturday post-show for selected performances.

The venues are available for performance related events, including concerts, lectures, meetings, recitals, plays, graduations and pageants.

The Tampa Bay Performing Arts Center, which opened in 1987, was renamed for philanthropist David A. Straz Jr. in November 2009.
