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 - Five Women Wearing The Same Dress

2nd -18th February 2018

 

Five Women Wearing The Same Dress
Direction by Susan Morvan
Stage Management by Belinda Taylor

During an ostentatious wedding reception at a Knoxville, Tennessee estate, five reluctant, identically clad bridesmaids hide out in an upstairs bedroom, each with her own reason to avoid the proceedings below. They are Frances, a painfully sweet but sheltered fundamentalist. Mindy, the cheerful, wise-cracking lesbian sister of the groom. Georgeanne, whose heartbreak over her own failed marriage triggers outrageous behaviour. Meredith, the bride’s younger sister whose precocious rebelliousness masks a dark secret and Trisha, a jaded beauty whose die-hard cynicism about men is called into question when she meets Tripp, a charming bad-boy usher to whom there is more than meets the eye. As the afternoon wears on, these five very funny women joyously discover a common bond in this wickedly funny; irreverent and touching celebration of the women’s spirit.
