The Marco Players is the oldest not-for-profit, 501(c)3, community theater on Marco Island. As a volunteer-driven organization that operates year-round, The Marco Players Theater delivers live community theater to residents and visitors of SW Florida.
Started in the 1970’s (est. 1974) as a children’s play reading group, it was eventually re-created as an adult community theater known as The Marco Island Players. In the late 1970’s, the Players incorporated as a non-profit corporation, now known as The Marco Players.
In the early 1990’s, with the cooperation of Marco Town Center Mall, The Marco Players settled into its current leased spaces which serve as the rehearsal space, box office, tech booth and 83-seat theater space.
The Marco Players Theater is governed by a board of directors and is committed to the arts including the promotion of local artists and collaboration with performing and educational organizations such as Shakespeare in Paradise, Marco Island Shakespeare Festival, Marco Island Academy and the Naples Holocaust Museum. We are also proud members of the Cultural Alliance of Marco Island and Goodland (CAMIG),
