Sarasota, FL – July 14, 2021 – The Players Centre for Performing Arts unveiled its 92nd season to the public July 13 at 6pm from its new performance space at the Crossings at Siesta Key (3501 S. Tamiami Trail, Suite 1130, Sarasota, 34239).
The sold-out event marks The Players’ return to an indoor theater for the first time since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic. Attendees enjoyed performances and a champagne toast to christen the new theater.

The 92nd season will run from October 2021 to March 2022, with six exciting shows listed below gracing The Players “Studio 1130” stage!

This smash Off-Broadway hit takes you to the 1958 Springfield High School prom, where we meet Betty Jean, Cindy Lou, Missy and Suzy: four girls with hopes and dreams as big as their crinoline skirts! As we learn about their lives and loves, the girls serenade us with classic ‘50s hits including “Lollipop,” “Dream Lover,” “Stupid Cupid,” and “Lipstick on Your Collar.” In Act II, the Wonderettes reunite to take the stage and perform at their ten-year reunion. We learn about the highs and lows the girls have experienced in the past decade and are charmed to find that no matter what life throws their way, they will conquer it together!

Some Enchanted Evening

March 20, 26-27 at 2pm
More than those of any composer or lyricist writing for the stage, the songs of Rodgers & Hammerstein have become an integral part of our everyday lives. This stunning collection of their compositions places five performers in a theatrical setting: first 'backstage,' where the songs are sung as personal interplay, and then 'onstage,' where the songs are presented to an audience. Offering its performers an opportunity to explore timeless songs within their own styles and sensibilities, SOME ENCHANTED EVENING delights its audience with a glorious parade of genuine hits!
