The Players has BIG news!

Great news! The guys from The Players are announcing something awesome!

Hello patrons, donors, volunteers and friends of The Players Centre!
We know The Players holds a unique place in the hearts and minds of the Sarasota community, so we wanted to let you all in on our BIG plans.
After 90 years of laughter, tears, and everything in between (including a global pandemic), we have decided to move from our home in downtown Sarasota in October 2020.
The Players family sees this step as the first of many exciting developments. Our temporary location and plans for a 91st season will be announced. The health and safety of our staff, students, volunteers and patrons is our top priority. We don't want to make any hasty decisions.
And don't worry, the theatre is still moving forward on the brand-new facility in Waterside Place of Lakewood Ranch.
A community theatre is more than a building; it's much more than bricks and mortar. It's the feeling and energy that transcends a physical space. The mission of The Players Centre, to entertain, educate and engage the community through high quality live theatre will continue wherever The Players performs and teaches.
Look out for these future events:
  • That's Entertainment: The Players 90th Birthday Celebration - August 2020. Join The Players as they celebrate 90 years of theatre in a Zoom gala!
  • Props, costumes and more will be for sale at The Bazaar at Apricot and Lime and in the lobby of the theatre.
  • Farewell Tours - Early Sept. 2020. Reservations will open soon, the bar will be open, groups will be small, but patrons can say their own goodbye, see the theatre for the last time and enjoy a few surprises.
  • A Few of Our Favorite Things - Oct. 2020. A reimagined look at the proposed finale show previously scheduled for the 91st Broadway Series will go virtual! The Players will ask for performances submitted virtually to put together a digital homage to this Sarasota institution.
  • The Legend of Sleepy Hollow - Oct. 2020. The Players fourth annual production of The Legend of Sleepy Hollow will again be presented outdoors!
  • Check The Players website ( for more exciting upcoming events!
Those patrons that have flex passes (tickets to be used for future events) may use them for any events listed or any that follow. Subscribers can rest assured there will be a 91st season. The slate of shows will change, but the value will be just as strong. Dates will follow the announcement of our new performance location.
Staff at The Players will be happy to talk to any patrons, volunteers and community members about upcoming plans and productions as they unfold. Please call 941.365.2494, or look for news on
