We offer high-quality entertainment and cultural activities to the citizens of middle Georgia. Though we are an amateur community theatre, we strive for excellence and professionalism in all that we choose to do. We promote and nourish community spirit, providing mutual support and encouragement to individuals and other cultural arts groups.

Our community theatre could not exist without your past, present, and continued support. So we hope that your enjoyment of our productions has been and will continue to be repayment of your faith and support of Perry Players.

We are a totally volunteer organization so if you feel the urge to "get out and do something", consider auditioning or volunteering for one of our productions.

Reservations

Our theatre seats 179 people, and every seat in the house is great!

Our performances have become extremely popular, so we recommend making reservations. For each show, we begin taking reservations the Monday before opening night.

We have open seating in our theatre so we encourage arriving early so that you may claim the seats you prefer. We will hold your reservations until fifteen minutes before curtain time. We then release unclaimed reservations to people who are on the waiting list and are at the theatre.

To avoid future embarrassment for her family—and especially for her daughter, Myrtle Mae—Veta decides to have Elwood committed to a sanitarium.

Second Session: June 13 to June 24, 2016 with performances on June 24 and 25

Summer Youth WorkshopsThis year marks the 22nd anniversary of the Youth Theatre Workshop. I'm thrilled we've been able to offer this program to the community for twenty-one years! Extraordinary memories and remarkable friendships have highlighted this exceptional journey! In recent years, it has been especially thrilling to have "workshop grandchildren" – the children of parents who used to be workshop students. We work, we learn, and we laugh! This summer, I hope your children can be a part of the experience!

Participants will receive two weeks of training in stage movement, audition technique, acting, characterization, makeup, voice, and gaining confidence when speaking to an audience. The workshop will culminate in three performances on the final weekend.

The first week: The workshop hours are 9 a.m. until noon for ages 7 through 12. Teenagers may stay until 1:30 p.m. on Monday through Thursday. On Friday, everyone leaves at noon.

The second week: The hours are Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. until 1:55 p.m. for everyone.

The cost of each session of the workshop is $140 per youth which includes a complimentary t-shirt. The workshop is open to youth ages 7 through High School.

If you are interested, please email me at theatreworkshop@cox.net for additional information.

This is the highlight of the year for my assistants and me! My goal is that it will be a hightlight for your children as well!

Thank You!

Joy Goodman, Director

 

Mary Poppins the Musical

Performances: July 2016

Mary Poppins the Musical

Everyone's favorite practically perfect nanny takes the stage in this Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious musical adventure.

One of the most popular Disney movies of all time is capturing hearts in a whole new way: as a practically perfect musical! Based on the books by P.L. Travers and the classic Walt Disney film, Disney and Cameron Mackintosh's Mary Poppins delighted Broadway audiences for over 2,500 performances and received nominations for nine Olivier and seven Tony Awards, including Best Musical.

The jack-of-all trades, Bert, introduces us to England in 1910 and the troubled Banks family. Young Jane and Michael have sent many a nanny packing before Mary Poppins arrives on their doorstep. Using a combination of magic and common sense, she must teach the family how to value each other again. Mary Poppins takes the children on many magical and memorable adventures, but Jane and Michael aren't the only ones she has a profound effect upon. Even grown-ups can learn a lesson or two from the nanny who advises that "Anything can happen if you let it."

** Please note that MARY POPPINS is not included in the Season, Patron and Grand Patron tickets.

2015 - 2016 Season

In this transcendently powerful new adaptation by Wendy Kesselman, Anne Frank emerges from history a living, lyrical, intensely gifted young girl, who confronts her rapidly changing life and the increasing horror of her time with astonishing honesty, wit, and determination. An impassioned drama about the lives of eight people hiding from the Nazis in a concealed storage attic, THE DIARY OF ANNE FRANK captures the claustrophobic realities of their daily existence—their fear, their hope, their laughter, their grief. Each day of these two dark years, Anne's voice shines through: "When I write I shake off all my cares. But I want to achieve more than that. I want to be useful and bring enjoyment to all people, even those I've never met. I want to go on living even after my death!" This is a new adaptation for a new generation.

September 2015

Mix a Hitchcock masterpiece with a juicy spy novel, add a dash of Monty Python and you have The 39 Steps, a fast-paced whodunit for anyone who loves the magic of theatre! This 2-time Tony® and Drama Desk Award-winning treat is packed with nonstop laughs, over 150 zany characters (played by a ridiculously talented cast of 4), an on-stage plane crash, handcuffs, missing fingers and some good old-fashioned romance!

In The 39 Steps, a man with a boring life meets a woman with a thick accent who says she's a spy. When he takes her home, she is murdered. Soon, a mysterious organization called "The 39 Steps" is hot on the man's trail in a nationwide manhunt that climaxes in a death-defying finale! A riotous blend of virtuoso performances and wildly inventive stagecraft, The 39 Steps amounts to an unforgettable evening of pure pleasure!

Elwood P. Dowd insists on including his friend Harvey in all of his sister Veta’s social gatherings. Trouble is, Harvey is an imaginary six-and-a-half-foot-tall rabbit. To avoid future embarrassment for her family—and especially for her daughter, Myrtle Mae—Veta decides to have Elwood committed to a sanitarium. At the sanitarium, a frantic Veta explains to the staff that her years of living with Elwood’s hallucination have caused her to see Harvey also, and so the doctors mistakenly commit her instead of her mild-mannered brother. The truth comes out, however; Veta is freed, and the search is on for Elwood, who eventually arrives at the sanitarium of his own volition, looking for Harvey. But it seems that Elwood and his invisible companion have had a strange influence on more than one of the doctors. Only at the end does Veta realize that maybe Harvey isn’t so bad after all.

Deathtrap

Deathtrap holds the record for the longest running comedy-thriller on Broadway and was also nominated for the Tony Award for Best Play.

When once-successful playwright Sidney Bruhl sees his latest Broadway effort bomb on its opening night, he tumbles into despair -- until he receives a package from his former student Clifford Anderson. Inside is an unproduced script that's better than anything Sidney has written in years. At the urging of his wife, Myra, Sidney undertakes a plan to lure Clifford to his country home, murder him and then announce the script as his own work.

Director Stuart Appleton

Plaza Suite

Hilarity abounds in this portrait of three couples successively occupying a suite at the Plaza. A suburban couple take the suite while their house is being painted and it turns out to be the one in which they honeymooned 23 (or was it 24?) years before and was yesterday the anniversary, or is it today? This wry tale of marriage in tatters is followed by the exploits of a Hollywood producer who, after three marriages, is looking for fresh fields. He calls a childhood sweetheart, now a suburban housewife, for a little sexual diversion. Over the years she has idolized him from afar and is now more than the match he bargained for. The last couple is a mother and father fighting about the best way to get their daughter out of the bathroom and down to the ballroom where guests await her or as Mother yells, "I want you to come out of that bathroom and get married!"

Director Don Boyd
