Sarasota, FL – August 11, 2020 – The Players Centre for Performing Arts is excited to announce, A Few of Our Favorite Things, a virtual goodbye to 90 Years in downtown Sarasota!
The Players has been around since 1929, the same year the Iron Lung and the car radio were invented. That is 90 years of memories, friendships, and community arts education and entertainment. Such a historic and loving facility deserves a send-off like none other. This isn’t “goodbye,” it’s only “see you later.”
We’ve decided to take A Few of Our Favorite Things, originally set to close our 91st Season, and use it as a virtual farewell to our home in downtown Sarasota.
Have you performed on our stage? Were you a crew member backstage? Have you worked in our costume and/or scene shop? Ushered, designed, choreographed, or directed a show? WE WANT YOU! Here’s how it works:
-Film yourself performing a song, dance, scene, monologue, you name it from one of your favorite Players memories!
-Do you simply want to tell us your favorite Players story? We want to hear it!
-All submissions must be between 1-3 minutes and filmed HORIZONTALLY.
-Please make your background look presentable, make sure there’s light on your face and your surroundings are clean and not distracting.
-If you make a mistake or have a technical issue, film again! This is one of the wonderful things about filming.
-Have fun being a part of The Players Centre’s downtown Sarasota farewell performance!
Submissions are due Sept. 1, 2020 to THIS Dropbox link: https://www.dropbox.com/request/3cj6heebdMQydJhiUMlq.
The Players is anticipating a lot of submissions. If this is the case, there’s no guarantee all submissions will be used in the show. There’s also a chance your video will be shortened to allow time for as many performances as possible.
This virtual farewell will air online Friday, Sept. 25 at 7:30pm, less than a week before we vacate our Sarasota theater space. Tickets are $20 and available at www.ThePlayers.org. Those who purchase a ticket will receive a link to watch on Sept. 25!
