New this year!  We are offering a breakfast brunch buffet prior to all Adults At Leisure performances.

Space is limited and reservations are strongly encouraged.

How to purchase an Upstage Dining ticket: It’s easy to make reservations online, all you have to do is choose the show you are planning to attend, click on the Upstage Dining tab, hit the Purchase Dining button and you are on your way to dining a few steps away from the stage! Our friendly ticket office staff is also available by phone to assist with any questions or concerns regarding your Upstage Dining experience, please call 727.791.7400.

If you don’t have time to make it for the pre-show buffet, don’t worry, you can always grab a light snack (hot dogs, pretzels, popcorn and more) and refreshments at one of our concessions stands.  Make plans to arrive early and join us outside under the old kapok tree on the East Side Café for live entertainment and food trucks (of course, weather permitting!).
