The new theatre is awesome and the level of talent in their current production is off the charts! Can't wait to see the next production!

The new theater is a Must Go, and the current show "Les Mis" is a "Must See"
We are very proud that Manatee Players is continuing to grow and be a big part of the cultural seen in our area.

The new Manatee Players Theatre has finally opened in Bradenton, a few blocks from the original and still functioning theatre, and it is a hit! The building is a beautiful addition to the re-making of the riverfront, and provides a comfortable and professional feel to live theatre in Bradenton.
The shows for this season exhibit the energy and drive that the Players has to offer amazing talent and wonderful entertainment for a wide audience of loyal ticket holders. The building, Stone Hall, will present 8 full, well-known musicals this season, while the smaller and more intimate original theatre will be offering unique dramas and revues.
Not only is the cost of tickets reasonable, each show has a long enough run to make it possible to obtain tickets to even the most popular presentations. Parking is adjacent to the theatre, and a small candy and wine bar is available at very reasonable prices.
A great way to spend an evening!! Once you attend, you will want to return.

Manatee Players has consistently used great talents to grace their small stage. Now, they move to their much-deserved 'new house,' and so the professionals working in the area will meet a nicer stage and a happier audience experience. Wish they'd 'stretch' out a bit more on selected plays, but they do many standards so well. I'm rarely disappointed.

Visited the theater for a showing of Cinderella with my two daughters age 4 and 2! The show was a production from a children's camp that the theater had hosted. The show was awesome with music and dancing and short enough to keep both of my daughter's attention. There is still construction going on the building but this does not take away from the show or experience. Make sure you get a a picture of the beautiful chandelier, it is the original chandelier from Gone With The Wind. Kudos to such a great theater company. We plan to visit each time we vacation on Anna Maria Island and Bradenton!
