The Black Box is home to the Ft Pierce Jazz and Blues Society's Jazz Jams every Tuesday and the home of "The Comedy Corner" (from the owners of the Improv) bringing top-touring comedians every 2nd & 4th Saturday night.
The Sunrise Theatre directly benefits the economy and quality of life in St. Lucie County by attracting visitors from other cities, counties and states. Like all performing arts theatres, ticket sales and rental charges cover less than one-half of our operating costs. As a member supported, volunteer assisted organization, with over 500 members and 200+ volunteers, the Sunrise Theatre serves over 85,000 patrons and guests annually.
The Sunrise Theatre’s commitment to providing affordable ticket prices to a wide variety of outstanding entertainment, children's educational programs, quality programming for seniors, and a wide variety of community outreach events is possible in part because of the membership dollars that we receive. By becoming a member of The Sunrise Theatre, you will help preserve the Sunrise as the greatest and grandest historic theatre on the Treasure Coast, providing quality entertainment to the region…now and for years to come.
