Welcome to The Island Players 

"Cruel are the times" says Ross, in Macbeth. We "float upon a wild and violent sea / Each way and move".
How often we look to Shakespeare. There is something reassuring for us to know although these words were written over 400 years ago, they still resonant strongly today. 
The directors, actors, production staff, box office staff, lighting and sound, stage managers, costumes designers, ushers and house managers, set production staff, volunteers, maintenance and cleaning staff and our board members are vital to the lifeblood of our art form.
The suspension of performances will impact not only our loyal audience but also our committed and talented workforce.
As a result of this closure, we are projecting a loss of over $30,000. Therefore, we are asking patrons to please consider donating any tickets for cancelled productions back to The Island Players. By doing so, your tax deductible gift will help limit the significant  financial impact to our theatre. I understand from Peg Faarup our box office manager, that some gracious patrons have already done that.  Thank you! Click here to contact the boxoffice.
With certainty as rare as a commodity as toilet tissue, its hard to predict whats next.  What I can say is : We are developing and planning our next season with the same passion and joy as we always do.
We will be back... as strong as before.
Please keep safe and look after your friends and family and loved ones, we look forward to seeing you all in September.
