Live Oak Theatre Co. Buys Hernando County Building
It will be transformed into a performing arts center.
BROOKSVILLE – The Hernando County Commission unanimously agreed last week (Jan. 23) to approve the Live Oak Theatre Co.’s purchase of the former utilities department administrative building.
The theater company will pay $500,000 for the building, 21030 Cortez Blvd. in Brooksville. The building has been for sale since 2016 after the utilities department relocated to the former Tampa Bay Times building at 15365 Cortez Blvd. The former utilities department building is slated to be transformed into a performing arts center.
“This performing arts center for children and adults, will offer not only an expanded season of family-friendly entertainment, but also a variety of other opportunities,” Live Oak Theatre’s Vice President Vince Vanni said.
The Live Oak Theatre Co. is a not-for-profit company that exists to enrich families, individuals and the community by providing a positive and professional environment through which fine arts students are enabled to develop and sharpen their performance skills as they participate in large-scale musical theater productions alongside seasoned performers/mentors.
“We have grown our audience to the point where our last production of Annie drew a full house for eight performances,” Live Oak Theatre President Randi Olsen said. “We realized this fall that we have out grown our current facility and we feel that it is very important that we continue to rehearse and perform here in Brooksville.”
