My husband and I try to spend 2 weeks in Sarasota every December and for our anniversary. This year we bought the dinner and theatre pkg. from the Manatee Players website. It was absolutely wonderful. The dinner was at Pier 22, then we walked cross the street to the theatre and saw Plaid Tidings. You couldn't ask for a more enjoyable evening. Dinner was excellent, we sat out on the deck overlooking the bay, and the theatre group was exceptional. A must see. We plan on doing this again next year.

Great plays with super talent! Most of the talent is from the local schools. These kids are unbelievable. It is affordable and a charming location.

My prize possession each year is my sesason ticket to the Manatee Players Theatre. They present great shows and the actors and actresses all seem to be enjoying themselves as they are performing for us. After eating at Pier 22, Manatee Players is just across the street. There is a deal where you may buy dinner and see the show all for one price. If you enjoy stage shows, you will love Manatee Players Theatre's presentations.

Saw "Walk the Line" at the theatre. It well done. The volunteers assisting with seating happened to be from Tree Lakes Resort; where we stayed Dec 2011-April 2012. It was a fun night plus we got to see some of the people we knew.

The theatre is easy to find right at the water. There are lots of restaurants to eat very close.
We love to go there!
