We got tickets at the last minute, and thoroughly enjoyed the last performance of Sweet Charity here. The theater had a cozy, friendly atmosphere that we liked. The lead actress was phenomenal in her role, and made the show very entertaining. We plan to check out future performances here, but may be hampered by the theater's relocation plans in the... More

Just saw Sweet Charity. It was an energetic and well done performance. A real delight. The theatre is comfortable with good sight lines. The staging was very good. We will add this to our theatre experiences when in Sarasota.

Recently went to The Players Theatre and really enjoyed both the theatre and the performance of "Sweet Charity" that we attended. It was our first time there and first time seeing this musical. I'm tall and I found the legroom between the seat in front of me to be roomy. I liked that there were no stairs to the theatre... More

Best friends and we decided to go to the final showing of Gypsy. Great production of the 1959 musical. First Act long-1 and 1/2 hrs, but loaded with entertainment. Majority of players were very good. Hadn't been here in a couple of years. This place is a great buy, all seats are good. Staff very friendly. Only complaint-get a second... More

Its been years since I have gone there. Our friends asked if we wanted to go Saturday for the musical cyrino. It was great. Great fun. Good energy and surprisingly good singing and dancing. We will be back soon. Still like a page out of the fifties but cute

I saw a recent production at the Backstage at The Players. The production was very well put together and the actors were very good! I highly recommend a show at The Players Theatre for something fun to do, that is priced right and local!

This was our first time at this theatre. We were impressed with the intimate feel, the seating and the spacious amount of room to move around in the theatre. Parking was close. Because it was a movie, we have no basis upon which to judge acting or music. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and would like to return for a live... More
