CARROLLWOOD — Whether it’s hosting thought-provoking exhibits, entertaining audiences with theatrical or musical shows, or offering classes in various media, the Carrollwood Cultural Center is a welcome home for artists.

Now in its third year, The Studio Project returns for three shows featuring local playwrights in a one-act play. Audiences can catch these performances from January 19-21. Friday and Saturday shows run from 8-10 p.m. and Sunday’s matinee is scheduled from 2-4 p.m.

Tickets are available for members at $5 and non-members at $10. The shows will take place at the Carrollwood Cultural Center’s smaller and more intimate theatre, The Studio, located at 13345 Casey Road, Tampa.

“I think what brings audiences back is being able to see new works and to see things that are the first time they are ever produced on stage,” said Paul Berg, executive director at the Carrollwood Cultural Center. “They may see them again later, after they’ve been developed a little bit more, and can see how a work of art progresses.”

The theme of this year’s show is home, and audiences will get to watch three unpublished and unproduced works unfold on the stage.
