Want high quality live theatre but don't want to pay high prices such as places near by? Then this is the place for you! The quality of the productions are top notch and that goes for the sets, lights, sounds and actors on stage. If you are looking to have a fun night out with some fun, check out drag... More

Fantastic cast with incredible energy. A well-earned standing ovation for cast and crew. Ladies' restroom way too small. Comfortable seats with holders for drinks. Tickets are reasonably priced. Performances are ALWAYS top notch.

If you hit it right, there is some good theater here. It is, however, hit or miss. I have seen some amateurish productions as well. The prices are lower than at other Sarasota theaters. Their Black Box Theater is much better if you enjoy unusual plays.

Great interpretation of ABBA hits. We were touched by the performance of One of Us! Kudos to the singer/actress! Great ensemble!

The Players Theatre was reminiscent of a converted movie theater with what, it seemed like to me, was 50 seats in each row with no center isle. It was affordable with a range from $12 to $30 per ticket. This is possible because a lot of their actors and actress are volunteers. They are a community theater that trains students... More

First of all...the theatre and the company of performers are quite lovely and talented. I would gladly return for another but different performance. How anyone could find Sordid Lives anything but idiotic or a complete waste of time (and money) is beyond me. The story, if you can call it that, is so disjointed and ridiculous it was uncomfortable to... More

If you have a chance to go backstage, it is incredible with the artwork and murals that have been painted on the walls of this historic theatre. THe lobby is decorated with art as well, and the theatre is very nice inside with good seating. Easy place to find with good parking.

Went to see Carousel here, and they did a very creditable job. Considering many of the actors were volunteers, one could overlook the slightly wooden performances! The voices of the main characters were very good,and most of the production flowed very well. The air conditioning was on full blast when we were there, and I was very thankful for the... More
