Embracing the entrepreneurial spirit that has taken hold of Sarasota, The Players Centre will be relocating to the new Waterside Village development of Lakewood Ranch in Sarasota County. A new performing arts campus will be constructed on 4.5 acres in the center of the development.
The Players Centre will feature a 480-seat main stage auditorium with balcony seating, a 125-seat black box theatre, a 100-seat cabaret theatre with dining, and the main campus of The Arnold Simonsen Players Studio, which is the education arm of the organization. In order to maintain a downtown Sarasota presence, a satellite studio location will continue to operate in
Rosemary Square.
