Welcome To The Players Theatre

Port Macquarie and The Hastings' Community Theatre for over 50 years

 
 

The Players Theatre Inc. owns and operates the Players Theatre. This superb, 230 seat venue not only provides first class entertainment for residents of the Port Macquarie and Hastings region, but enables the community to be involved and experience all facets of theatre- including acting, directing, set design, stage construction, make-up and costuming.

The ‘Players ‘ have been active for over 50 years, consistently staging 5-6 productions annually- ranging from drama, comedy, musical and pantomime.

The theatre is also available for hire to outside organisations and operates a Costume Hire Dept. boasting an extensive range of theatrical and party costumes for hire.

The operation of the Players Theatre relies on ticket sales, although, more recently, a substantial Government Grant allowed for a sprinkler system to be installed and smaller grants have provided funds for on-going structural improvements.

Our Next Production - The Producers

6th - 22nd May 2016

The Producers 6th - 22nd May 2016

Directed by Daniel Parlevliet|

Based on the 1968 film, Mel Brooks’s musical The Producers is a laugh-out-loud, outrageous, crowd-pleasing farce that has been a smash hit since its 2001 debut. Fading Broadway producer Max Bialystock is desperate to get to the top of his profession again, and he finds an unlikely ally in mousy accountant Leo Bloom, who hypothesizes that one could make far more money with a flop of a show than with a hit. Together, the two set out to produce the worst musical ever to hit Broadway, with the worst script, the worst director, and the worst cast they can find; the catch is that they will raise two million dollars to finance the show, and they plan to take the money and head to Rio when the show inevitably closes after just one performance. Too bad for Bialystock & Bloom that, against all odds, the show is a total hit! With dozens of big and bit parts alike, no shortage of showstopping musical numbers, and Brooks’ signature humor keeping audiences in stitches, The Producers is definitely far from a flop.
