"Oak, which has been in development at Urbanite since receiving the organization’s 2020 Charles Rowan Beye New Play Commission, is a Southern Gothic horror at its core, mixing bone-chilling scares with themes of racial identity and prejudice." - SRQ Daily


Located in the heart of downtown Sarasota, Florida, Urbanite Theatre is a professional non-profit theatre. We produce thrilling new works in the region's most intimate venue: a 65-seat fully flexible black-box theater. The result is a highly immersive experience that challenges one's perspectives and demands conversation.

On the side of the building, there is a large abstract multicolor mural on a black background. It is sunrise.
