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:
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 theplayers.org.
Thank you for all your love and support,
