"There are the players."

Playmakers is the Festival's fun and exciting youth training program, including instruction from theatre professionals and a chance to perform in a special Playmakers production.

The 2017 Playmakers production will be Once on this Island, a highly original and theatrical Caribbean adaptation of the popular fairy tale, "The Little Mermaid." It garnered eight Tony nominations for its Broadway run, including best musical, book, and score. 

Public performances of the Playmakers version of Once on this Island will be in the Eileen and Allen Anes Studio Theatre. School performances will be April 8 at 2 p.m. and April 7 and 10 at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $8.
