State of the Theatre - May 2019
Executive Director Suzanne Hudson-Smith shares her thoughts about Players by the Sea in May 2019.
You may have noticed -- we are busy at Players by the Sea! Not only bringing you great live theatre, but by opening Players Theatre to other organizations to create and entertain. April brought young artists recitals, the inaugural Sands Film Festival hosted screenings of new foreign films, and we continue to welcome Unity of Jacksonville Beach each Sunday
Players by the Sea Theatre has never looked better or welcomed so many to enjoy our space for films, fundraisers, private parties or special events!
Live theatre is our mission! Wild Party, now on our stage, is truly a wild party for Players. This musical is the theatrical rendition of a Jazz Age narrative poem, The Wild Party written by Joseph Moncure March. There is risqué content that is handled with classy choreography delivered by THE most talented cast I’ve seen on our stage. Come to see this show and experience all the talent our area has to offer.
SEASON 54 – Players by the Sea has announced our full line up for the 54th Season! And what a season it’ll be. Some classic musicals (The Wiz, A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum), fun parodies (the musical Toxic Avenger and play The Musical Comedy Murders of 1940), holiday traditions (A Christmas Carol), a drama (Two Trains Running) and contemporary musical about coming of age (Spring Awakening!).
Season Memberships for Season 54 are available right now! You’ve seen how our productions are selling out and filling up, so choosing a level that gives you reserved seating might be a great choice for the 2019-2020 season. It’s easy to order your membership through our website, or you can call the Box Office to renew. Your support of Players by the Sea with a Season Membership is part of how we can do what we do – provide exceptional live community theatre!
SPECIAL INVITATION – Mark your calendars for a one-year celebration and Annual Meeting on Tuesday, June 25 from 7pm to 9pm at Players. We’re going to share some fun from the past year and present you with the Sounds of Season 54! Come join us to hear the music from upcoming season, meet the directors and raise a glass to toast the coming year.
I look forward to seeing you at a show soon!
