Beautiful community playhouse. Seats a nice crowd. Sears fairly comfortable with ample leg room. Both myself and my companion were amazed by that. Energy of theater and audience very pleasant and comfortable. Play was great -a bit dialog heavy for 8 pm after dinner. We would return for another production.

Wonderful Surprise!
May 2019
Last spring, I was on the Anna Maria Island and went to see “Present Laughter”. I kept me laughing from start to finish. The actors carried their English accents with pride. Costumes we very nicely done to fit the time frame of the play. Set was well constructed and added to the success of this play. The theater, lighting and seating is comfortable. Please check their website for ticket information for their 71st Season of great Community performances.

Incredible Community Theater

The Island Players in Anna Maria is a gem! There is not a bad seat in the house! The directors and actors are professional. A must visit if you are looking for a wonderful experience while on the island.

Must visit... what a gem!!

I recently attended the last production of the season, An inspector calls. What a wonderful surprise, this lovely little theater was adorable. We were greeted by a very helpful lady in the box office, then shown to our seat by an enthusiastic volunteer.
The production was first class and very well acted, much to our delight. Highly recommended!

Enjoy going there but cannot buy tickets!

Have seen shows there before, and performances are OK. Want to see a show there now but can only buy tickets by phone and box office says they will call back but they don't. Emails to the president, the only contact on their website, are not answered, I guess they must be doing just fine and are sold out so see no need to respond.

Something not sounding right here bulldog620. When the box office is not open, the phone does not take messages and is not set up for call backs so I'm not sure what happened to imply to you that you would get a call back. Perhaps you could give more information? Email to the President usually get a reply within a few days. Is your "spam" filter allowing them through? Otherwise, yes we are doing fine and even when "sold out" we would reply to emails. Here's hoping you get to enjoy one of our upcoming shows.

Attended the Island Players show "Play On" It was delightful. I don't much care to go to the theater, but I would recommend this show for all guys that need points at home.
Take your lady or lady friend to see this show. It ain't Broadway but it was great community theater.

Brilliant!

Our second visit to the Island Players Theatre and it will not be our last!
Beautifully maintained little theatre with lots of history - the building was originally a family home located in Palmetto and was relocated to its current site - a real feat of civil engineering!

Very comfy seating with (I am pretty sure) no seats that have obstructions.
Staff and volunteers clearly love what they do and that comes across from the box office to the stage manager to the actors!

Can't wait for a return visit if we are in the area when there is a production running!

Small Nostalgic Theater
Oct 2016 • Couples
We went here within the last two weeks to see a show. We have lived here for many years and I regret to say that this is the first time I have visited this! The show we visited was delightful. It is a small theater with about 80-100 seats. Anna Maria is a sleepy town and it is a wonderful way to have some entertainment when the sun goes down. You could combine this with the Sign of the Mermaid which is a few blocks down for a lovely evening.
