Our second visit to the Island Players Theatre and it will not be our last! Beautifully maintained little theatre with lots of history - the building was originally a family home located in Palmetto and was relocated to its current site - a real feat of civil engineering! Very comfy seating with (I am pretty sure) no seats that have... More

We went here within the last two weeks to see a show. We have lived here for many years and I regret to say that this is the first time I have visited this! The show we visited was delightful. It is a small theater with about 80-100 seats. Anna Maria is a sleepy town and it is a wonderful... More

Everything about "Almost Maine" was great. One of the best we have been privileged to attend. Well done and extremely affordable. Love this intimate quaint theatre.

Although amdram the shows here are always very professional and great value. Went to see Radio Ridiculous and was not disappointed - hilarious from beginning to end. Theatre only seats 145 and is in an old single storey wooden bungalow complete with stone fireplace - quite charming. Recommended.

Small theater where all seats appear to be good for viewing and there is plenty of legroom. Our seats were to the far right and had no obstructions. Volunteers/staff were friendly and helpful. The scenery was perfect. The actors did a great job. We're planning to return.

The production was delightful, but the theater itself is rather dated and so close to the water that the smell of mold is almost over-powering. If you have allergies, be mindful. Parking is spread out all along the streets and a few close lots, so I would advise taking a flashlight for uneven walkways.

Long Time subscriber. The productions are top notch; exquisite set design and wonderfully talented actors. For Island vacationers a wonderful way to spend the evening after a day at the beach.

Anna Maria Island has made made great waves in the tourist industry in recent years for its great beaches and old world laid-back ambiance. Well, you all must also ride the waves too at this little local community theater where local talent and hospitality combine to provide 1st class entertainment on a regular basis during their season October thru May....

Getting tickets is a little quirky but worth the effort. One person who answers the phone occasionally. The seats were comfortable. We were well entertained and will repeat again next year.
