Your Board of Directors
The Pelican Players has been a Kings Point club since 1980, and we are a 501(c3) non-profit organization.
We do three main stage productions each year. One in the spring, one over the summer months and one in the fall.
In 2017 we brought “Harvey”, “Over the River and Through the Woods” and “Calendar Girls” to our audiences.
In 2018 we presented “The Curious Savage” on March 1st, 2nd, and 3rd. In July, from the 19th through the 21st, we presented a Phil Olson comedy/drama called "Mom's Gift". November 8th through the 11th, you will be entertained by Robert Harling's "Steel Magnolias".
Spring through fall brings "free" Reader's Theater experiences starting in May through October. These are performed in the Veteran’s Theater and all are welcome to bring snacks and beverages. In this 2018 season, we will be bringing you "A Christmas Carol" by Charles Dickens on Thursday, December 20 in the Veterans Theater
We also do murder mystery dinner theaters for hire from which all proceeds go to our scholarship fund.
And now the Pelican Players are happy to announce the return of music to our group. “The Pelican Player’s Cabaret Singers” under the direction of Ron Deitsch will add music to our theatrical resume. This group will offer entertainment for hire to groups and clubs as well as full main stage musicals. Anyone who has musical theater experience and would like join in all the fun, please contact Ron Deitsch @ 813-545-7748.
Profits from these productions go to scholarships for Hillsborough County high school students going into the arts.
To date we have given well over $500,000 in scholarships.
Everyone you see on stage and behind the scenes, sound, sound effects, set design and construction, set decoration, props, make-up, stage manager, directors, the house manager and your friendly ushers, is a volunteer.
No one gets a paycheck. They do this for their love of the theater.
