We have bought the old Knights of Columbus building in Gulfport as of August 16, 2004. It is 7000 sq. ft. inside, has LOTSof room (complete with a spacious loft), a large parking lot, a full commercial kitchen, and a LOT of potential. This will be our new meeting, audition, and rehearsal space. We will also use the newly named Back Door Theater for some of our productions too.
Our goal is to transform this theater into a performing arts center. It will serve as a testing ground for new plays, new playwrights and challenging new projects. The community, both young and old, will experience children's plays, improv, musical variety shows, and dinner theater.
In the future, we hope grants and stipends will enable us to make improvements to the building and provide training in all aspects of live theater ... acting, set design, lights, sound, music, and dance.

Audition Announcement for our
13th Annual Summer One Act Festival
The Gulfport Community Players will be holding auditions for their 13th Annual Summer One Act Festival on Monday & Tuesday, May 20th & 21st, at 7 pm. Auditions will be held at the Back Door Theater, loctaed at 1619- 49th St. So., in Gulfport, Fl.
The Festival has 11 very short plays, each ranging from 5 to 20 minutes in length. All interested people are urged to try out for a part. This is a great way to break into community theater, by the way. The plays are short, so there aren't a lot of lines to memorize.
The Festival will run from July 11th through July 21st, right in the middle of the Summer holiday season. Keep this in mind since, if you're chosen, you'll need to set aside time for rehearsals & performances during this period.
