Located in the heart of beautiful Downtown St. Petersburg,the Progress Energy Center for the Arts—Mahaffey Theater is a 2,031 seat cultural jewel featuring elegant ballroom space, spectacular waterfront views, and European box-style seating. Just steps away from the culturally vibrant Downtown and minutes away from white sandy beaches and world-famous museums, the Mahaffey hosts top-quality national and international artists and performances – Broadway, classical, pop, rock, comedy, dance, family, and the renowned Florida Orchestra. Additionally, the theater supports the highly successful Class Acts program, which enables school children to experience the performing arts through in-theater performances as well as in-school outreach and extension programs.

Tonight was my first visit to the Mahaffey Theater, but it won’t be my last! What a beautiful venue for a show! The facility is well-staffed with friendly people and even offers valet parking for events for only $15! Perfect night at G3!

We found it easy to get to, easy to park in garage, plenty of entry doors, adequate number of bars, could take drinks to your seat and the sound and view of the stage was terrific. Very nice facility and we will go often.

No they are not allowed. It could have been the show I went to wouldn’t allow them. I’m not sure if that is policy of the Theater.
