A Note from Artistic Director, Jeffery Kin:

“Our 90th Season is truly a celebration season.  Celebrating our history, our longevity and our incredibly deep relationship with the Sarasota Community.  As Sarasota grew, so did we, and this year I really feel we are 90 years YOUNG.  Never wanting to rest on our laurels, The Players Team and I are looking for new ways to share our mission and our message.   Our new location is taking shape, our fundraising efforts are moving forward and our vision is clear.  Lets celebrate the arts, lets celebrate your community theater and lets build a bright theatrical future for ALL of Sarasota!  And the good news?  It starts with you!  Join the celebration!”


Auditions for Sister Act, Head Over Heels, and Anything Goes will be on The Players Mainstage on Saturday, November 9 from 10-4 pm.

Please prepare a 32 bar cut from a song of your choice and a short 1 minute monologue.

See you there!

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.

Head Over Heels

Feb. 19 – March 8, 2020
This laugh-out-loud love story is set to the music of the iconic 1980’s all-female rock band The Go-Go’s, including the hit songs, “We Got the Beat,” “Our Lips Are Sealed,” “Vacation,” Belinda Carlisle’s “Heaven is a Place on Earth” and “Mad About You.” A hilarious, exuberant celebration of love, HEAD OVER HEELS follows the escapades of a royal family on an outrageous journey to save their beloved kingdom from extinction—only to discover the key to their realm’s survival lies within each of their own hearts.

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.
