About Bienes Center for the Arts
Welcome to the Bienes Center for the Arts, a state of the art black box theater and performance center located on the campus of St. Thomas Aquinas High School in Fort Lauderdale, FL.
The Bienes Center is intended to nurture the emphasis on the arts for the students of St. Thomas Aquinas, other schools and institutions in the area and the community at-large. The Bienes Center offerings excite the community about the important role of the “Arts” and provide a venue for theater, dance, music, lectures, art, drama, speech, and debate through the production of local, regional, and national events and performances.
St. Thomas Aquinas Fine Arts programs and classes utilize the Bienes Center facilities on a daily basis, with additional STA concerts,
performances, exhibits and events scheduled on evenings and weekends throughout the school year. In addition, a series of professional performances and cultural events are offered annually and are open to the public as ticketed events.
