Mainstage and the Shuler Stage

Our Mainstage theatre, located at 301 Julia Street in Downtown Titusville, is an intimate space with luxury seating and a proscenium stage. Our Shuler Stage is right across the street at 316 S. Palm Avenue. It is an open-air pavilion with amphitheatre-style seating.

The theatre sits in the heart of Downtown Titusville. Make your outing a true experience by visiting the many shops and amazing restaurants in the area before your performance. You may even get to view a rocket launch across the river!

Mission Statement

Titusville Playhouse’s mission is to provide enriching theatrical, artistic and social experiences to artists and audiences. We are committed to excellence in our productions and children’s educational programs and to making these programs accessible and enriching to the residents of Brevard County and the surrounding areas.


Titusville Playhouse wants its patrons, supporters, and community stakeholders in on the next Act.

The award-winning operator of the historic Emma Parrish Theatre and newly opened Shuler Stage announced today that it has begun a master planning process to support an expansion of Titusville Playhouse, Inc. (TPI) arts facilities, operations, and programming in downtown Titusville.

The public outreach and community engagement will begin immediately with public workshops to be held at the Emma Parrish Theatre April 6-7 and an online survey instrument being sent out to TPI’s patrons and community groups. To lead this effort, and assist TPI with other business and feasibility assessments, TPI has selected Theatre Projects after conducting a national search and concept development competition.

Founded in 1957, Theatre Projects is an internationally recognized group of planners, designers, and innovators who have worked on more than 1,500 projects in 80 countries, including the Dr. Phillips Center for the Performing Arts (Orlando, FL), New World Center (Miami, FL), and the Woodruff Arts Center’s Alliance Theatre Coca-Cola Stage (Atlanta, GA), to name a few.

TPI envisions creating a community gathering space and cultural arts hub that is approachable, welcoming, and enriching to Titusville and surrounding communities. As a destination, it should support diverse, engaging, and quality experiences. A centerpiece to the development plan is a new state-of-the-art multi-use venue programmed to include a 500-seat main stage theatre and an adjoining “black box” venue that can also host special events. The historic Emma Parrish Theatre (274 seats)—acclaimed for its unique, intimate house accommodations—will be retained to allow concurrent show offerings in addition to the newly added Shuler Stage. Other community gathering and event spaces may also be developed.

“We are very enthusiastic about working in partnership with Theatre Projects and the City of Titusville,” said Executive Artistic Director Steven Heron. “It is our vision to have a variety of entertainment that will reach all facets of our community here in Central Florida.”

Theatre Projects will lead community engagement workshops at the Emma Parrish Theatre, 301 Julia Street, on April 6 from 5:30 pm – 7:00 pm and on April 7 from 12:30 pm – 2:00 pm. A third workshop will be held April 7 (5:30pm – 7:00pm) at a TBD Location. The workshops will allow interested residents, visitors, community leaders, and TPI supporters to have a voice in the future of the arts in Titusville.

In addition, a digital survey will be available beginning Monday, March 28, 2022, via and will remain open through Friday, April 22, 2022. Feedback may also be submitted to or by calling (321) 379-6117.

“We look forward to hearing from our home community and all other markets that we serve, as well as our many stakeholders,” said TPI Board President Katy Ball. “As we develop a master plan for this performing arts hub as a destination in our downtown, we want to ensure we have captured the dreams of all who would like to help us vision it. Having our community’s support will be essential to building a cultural asset that will positively impact our city for generations to come.” Thank you so much for your support and I'll see YOU at the theatre as we begin this exciting new journey!!
