On Players Studio Classes

  • Classes are back in session! 
  • If you or your student will not be attending classes due to hurricane complications please let us know. We’d love to help. 
  • The Players Studio (1400 Blvd of the Arts, Suite 200, Sarasota, FL 34236) suffered some water leakage. This has been cleaned up and power has been restored.
  • If you have any specific questions please email


The business next to our shop location suffered severe damage during Hurricane Ian, greatly impacting our shop where we house props, set pieces and costumes. The staff and board of The Players gathered on Saturday to assess and clean the shop in an attempt to salvage as many costumes as we could. Many pieces were thrown away or damaged. This work continues as our roof was damaged in the storm as well. 

Work continues at the shop as we prepare for our upcoming shows!
