The Sarasota Players just announced the lineup for its 95th season—and the shows are centered around characters who grow and pursue themes of self-discovery, resilience and determination. Each production features protagonists embarking on personal journeys and facing obstacles that force them to confront their fears, doubts, and limitations. 

“We are so excited to celebrate 95 years with the community,” says Sarasota Players CEO Skaggs. “We’ve carefully selected each of these titles because of their emotional impact and how they connect with audiences.”

The season contains four mainstage shows, which will take place at The Sarasota Players theater location at the Crossings at Siesta Key, mall along with extra events throughout the year including a large 95th anniversary fundraiser, performances of Shakespearean works, an interactive comedy, and additional shows featuring local artists and their work.
