A Note from Artistic Director, Jeffery Kin:

“I’ve been thinking about this season, and ALL the events and benefits and shows we produce. I feel that each year, The Players takes a leap of faith and asks hundreds of volunteers and thousands of patrons to come along.  I truly BELIEVE that the work we do is more than just producing live theater.  I BELIEVE that the work we do changes lives. I BELIEVE that through our art, we can make the world a better place. So, I invite you to join The Players family and BELIEVE in an entire season of creating and entertaining and making our community better, one day at a time!”

The 90TH SEASON WILDE Broadway Series

Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat

Sept. 18 – Oct. 6, 2019
Celebrating its 50th anniversary in 2019, Joseph is one of the most enduring shows of all time, a reimagining of the Biblical story of Joseph, his father Jacob, 11 brothers and the coat of many colors. This magical musical is full of catchy songs with unforgettable classics like “Any Dream Will Do” and “Close Every Door.”

The Fantasticks

Oct. 23 – Nov. 10, 2019
There’s always time to remember this romantic fable about a boy, a girl, and a love that grows with each season. It’s the longest-running musical in the world and with good reason: at the heart of its breathtaking poetry and subtle theatrical sophistication is a purity and simplicity that transcends cultural barriers.

Hello, Dolly!

Dec. 4 – 22, 2019
The romantic and comic escapades of Dolly Gallagher-Levi, turn-of-the-century matchmaker and “woman who arranges things,” are certain to thrill and entertain audiences again and again. The show’s memorable songs include “Put On Your Sunday Clothes,” “Before the Parade Passes By,” and “Hello, Dolly!”

Sister Act

Jan. 15 – Feb. 2, 2020
A divine musical comedy about a woman hiding in a convent who helps her fellow sisters find their voices as she rediscovers her own. Featuring original music by Tony- and eight-time Oscar winner Alan Menken, this uplifting musical was nominated for five Tony Awards, including Best Musical.

An Exciting Musical  (Title TBA)

Feb. 19 – March 8, 2020
In our 90th season, The Players will produce an exciting, rock musical. Stay tuned to see what it will be!

Anything Goes

Mar. 25 – Apr. 11, 2020
Music, dance, laughs, and the age-old tale of Boy Meets Girl – no musical puts it on stage better than ANYTHING GOES! A hilarious shipboard romp, wrapped around one of Cole Porter’s most magical scores, ANYTHING GOES is Delightful, Delicious, and De-Lovely.
