Recently went to The Players Theatre and really enjoyed both the theatre and the performance of "Sweet Charity" that we attended. It was our first time there and first time seeing this musical. I'm tall and I found the legroom between the seat in front of me to be roomy. I liked that there were no stairs to the theatre... More

Best friends and we decided to go to the final showing of Gypsy. Great production of the 1959 musical. First Act long-1 and 1/2 hrs, but loaded with entertainment. Majority of players were very good. Hadn't been here in a couple of years. This place is a great buy, all seats are good. Staff very friendly. Only complaint-get a second... More

Its been years since I have gone there. Our friends asked if we wanted to go Saturday for the musical cyrino. It was great. Great fun. Good energy and surprisingly good singing and dancing. We will be back soon. Still like a page out of the fifties but cute

I saw a recent production at the Backstage at The Players. The production was very well put together and the actors were very good! I highly recommend a show at The Players Theatre for something fun to do, that is priced right and local!

This was our first time at this theatre. We were impressed with the intimate feel, the seating and the spacious amount of room to move around in the theatre. Parking was close. Because it was a movie, we have no basis upon which to judge acting or music. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and would like to return for a live... More

The MC for the show was not funny, nothing flowed. Jokes (comments) were crass and seemed to be random rather than part of a skit or story. The two women who covered Linda Perry's "What's going on" were the highlight of the show. It was advertised as comedy/ improv. The Improv was correct, just not comedy.

We were given tickets to a matinee from friends who felt we needed to try something new. To say we were pleasantly surprised is an understatement. The show was magnificent. The singing and dancing was like being at a Broadway show. The cast were not professionals, but rather volunteers. And so, you would expect less. But, you were given so... More

The performance was awesome I would highly recommended very enjoyable afternoon matinee a good value, the performers did a wonderful job. For the most part you were able to instantly tell who they were impersonating.
