Sarasota, FL – Oct. 5, 2021 – The Players Centre for Performing Arts opens its 92nd season on Oct. 7, 2021 at Art Center Sarasota with the musical comedy [title of show] with music and lyrics by Jeff Bowen and book by Hunter Bell. Following the show’s writers through their process of bringing the show to life, The Players Centre is excited to present a show about creative self-expression in such a creative and historic location.
Just as The Players Centre was the first performing arts location in Sarasota, Art Center Sarasota was the first arts organization in Sarasota. It is also across the street from the theater’s former location at 838 N. Tamiami Trail.
The show, described as, “a love letter to… musical theatre -- a uniquely American art form -- and to the joy of collaboration” follows four characters on a journey through the birth of a new and unique musical. This show does contain adult language and references.
Jeff and Hunter, two struggling writers, hear about a new musical theatre festival, however, the deadline for submissions is a mere three weeks away. [TITLE OF SHOW] — taken from the space on the festival’s application form which asks for the [TITLE OF SHOW] — follows friends on their journey through the gauntlet of creative self-expression. In the span of 90 minutes, they write and perform their show at the festival and learn lessons about themselves as people, friends, and artists.
