State of the Theatre - August 2019

Updated: Aug 1, 2019

Executive Director Suzanne Hudson-Smith shares her thoughts about Players by the Sea in August 2019.

Players by the Sea welcomes two new staff members. Alexandra Blackwell is the new Marketing and Communications Manager leading the charge to create greater awareness for the Theatre and our shows. You may have already talked with Kanesha Frederick our Box Office Admin Assistant. She is focused on customer service and you'll love her. We are fully staffed and ready to open Season 54.

What an amazing summer we've had at Players! The theatre was active with two Summer Workshops with over 35 young theatre students in house to put on a play and put on a musical. These students have sparked the growth of Players' School of the Arts and we're excited to announce our Fall Into Fall education course (read more about that program in the newsletter). If you have kids, grandkids, neighbors with kids, know families or teach kids — tell them about Players' School of the Arts!


It is a time of celebration — still, so please join us at the Theatre on Saturday, August 24 at 6:00 pm for the 40th Annual Pelican Awards. This is our annual awards celebration as we thank all of the creative teams and volunteers for their hard work on Season 53 productions. This is a Red Carpet night for Players and we'll be dressing up to enjoy food, drink and friends of the Theatre. RSVP and come join us!
