Players Hold Open House
The Gulfport Community Players will have a free Open House at their Back Door Theater. This will be held on Friday, October 4th from 6 to 8 p.m. During this event, the Players will announce the winners of the Cathy Awards for the 13th Annual Summer One Act Festival, that played at the Hickman Theater this past July. This too, is a first! Normally, this announcement wouldn’t be made until the middle of June, 2014. The Players will present plaques to the winners during this event. Be there to cheer on your favorites! The Theater is located at 1619 49th Street S. near the Gulfport Neighborhood Center.
So, if you ever wonder just what’s behind those blue walls of the Back Door Theater, now’s your chance to find out! Free and open to everyone. Drop on by and take a tour of their combination theater, rehearsal hall, audition place, meeting room, prop/costume room, and set-building areas. After all, they are a true community theater organization and this would be the perfect time to get a little glimpse of just what goes on behind the scenes in order to make their plays happen. Maybe, you might want to join in on the fun too!
