LOV E & L AU G HS AWA ITS! SEASON TICKETS FOR 2022-2023

ON SALE NOW! We are excited to present our 69th Season - a season dedicated to building community, instilling laughs, and looking to the future. This upcoming season will feature three of the most popular musicals ever written, some of the funniest plays, and heartwarming stories that audiences will love. We know that you’ll enjoy every performance. That's why The Naples Players has become a renowned cultural jewel - providing high-quality theatre, education, and outreach since 1953. Through the pandemic, TNP became a regional leader working to ensure the continued success and health of our community. Now, we're moving our community forward.

?

Did you know that 40% of our annual budget is supported by donations from individuals like you? In fact, when you donate at the time of your season subscription, you are contributing to a significant moment in our annual fundraising - as a majority of our donations arrive alongside season subscriptions. Please add

a donation to your subscription to help continue the legacy of high-quality, community-centric theatre in the heart of Downtown Naples.

With your help, we'll end our 69th Season with a landmark celebration as we break ground on a transformative renovation. This ambitious project honors our history, preserves our iconic façade on 5th Avenue, and safeguards our organization for years to come. We are hopeful that this celebration will begin in early 2023. Of course, much uncertainty exists in supply chain issues and construction materials; and we have scheduled an abbreviated season to allow us the flexibility to add additional productions as the timeline becomes clearer.

elcome to the Renaissance and the outrageous, crowd-pleasing musical farce, Something Rotten! Long before the dawn of premium tickets, star casting, and reminders to turn off your cell phones, brothers Nick and Nigel Bottom are desperate to write a hit play but are stuck in the shadow of that Renaissance rock star known as “The Bard." When a local soothsayer foretells that the future of theatre involves singing, dancing, and acting at the same time, Nick and Nigel set out to write the world’s very first musical! But amidst the scandalous excitement of Opening Night, the Bottom Brothers realize that reaching the top means being true to thine own self…and all that jazz.

his smash comedy hit offers up a fussy, cantankerous, and spiritual skeptic in Charles Condomine. But Charles’ spiritual skepticism vanishes when the ghost of his deceased first wife, Elvira, accidentally materializes—but only to him. Elvira’s still in love and wants Charles back, and is not about to let a little thing like death stand in her way! From the delightfully wicked mind of Noël Coward comes Blithe Spirit, where love and marriage devolve into laughter and mayhem – and ‘Till Death Do Us Part’ no longer applies.

his tour-de-force journey of a widow and widower who meet later in life and find a way into each other's hearts is a beautiful exploration of the intimate workings of all relationships. In a sprawling New Jersey Victorian, a taciturn Yankee widower and a vivacious grandmother from Tennessee find what they least expected - a second chance at love. Told with warmth and perceptive humor, this off-Broadway success is an affecting, late-inlife journey of compromise and rejuvenation, of personal risk and the rewards of change.

t’s the Golden Age of Hollywood, and aspiring starlet Vera Stark works as a maid to Gloria Mitchell, an aging star grasping at her fading career. Worlds collide when Vera lands a trailblazing role in an antebellum epic starring…her boss. While Vera’s portrayal of a slave turns out to be groundbreaking, decades later scholars and film buffs still grapple with the actress’ legacy in Hollywood and the impact that race had on her controversial career. Two-time Pulitzer Prize-winner Lynn Nottage’s fast-paced, sly satire will take you on a seventy-year journey through Vera’s life and the cultural climate that shaped her.

fter more than a decade-long run at the Theatre at Madison Square Garden, A Christmas Carol the Musical is a spectacular adaptation of Charles Dickens' most well-known story. Broadway heavy hitters, Alan Menken (Disney's Beauty and the Beast, Disney's The Little Mermaid, Little Shop of Horrors) and Lynn Ahrens (Ragtime, Seussical, Once on This Island), breathe fantastic new life into the classic tale of Ebeneezer Scrooge and his ghostly encounters. *Tickets include complimentary access to the Trees & Teas Festival

reathtaking mystery and high hilarity in equal parts, this play tells the story of Broadway star William Gillette, who has invited his fellow castmembers to his Connecticut castle for a weekend of revelry. But when one of the guests is stabbed to death, the festivities in this isolated house of tricks and mirrors quickly turn dangerous. SPONSORED BY

eaturing a trove of cherished songs, including "Climb Ev'ry Mountain," "My Favorite Things," "Do Re Mi," "Sixteen Going on Seventeen," and the title number, The Sound of Music won the hearts of audiences worldwide, earning five Tony Awards and five Oscars. The inspirational story, based on the memoir of Maria Augusta Trapp, follows an ebullient postulate who serves as governess to the seven children of the imperious Captain von Trapp, bringing music and joy to the household. But as the forces of Nazism take hold of Austria, Maria and the entire von Trapp family must make a moral decision.
