1. Will Call Tickets: Call 727-322-0316. Leave your name, indicate how many tickets you need, your selected performance date, and your phone number.
We do this as a courtesy to our patrons. Your tickets will be kept on hold for you at the ticket counter, BUT, they MUST be picked up at least
30 minutes before curtain time, or they may be sold to others awaiting seating. .
2. Theater tickets will be sold for just $15 each at the following Gulfport locations:
Gulfport Beach Bazaar, Couture'd Resale Boutique, Gulfport Chamber of Commerce, or at the Gulfport Casino.
You can also buy them at our ticket desk before curtain time.
3. At the door: Patrons may still buy their theater tickets at the door of the Theater before curtain time on their selected performance date. This, of course, applies only when we have tickets available for that performance. We do not oversell our performances, unlike some other theater groups do.
NOTE: Group tickets sales will also be available for 10 or more persons at the reduced rate of only $10 per ticket! These purchases must be pre-arranged with Cathy Culler, our ticket lady, and paid for ahead of time. Contact Cathy at 727-345-1501 for these group sales. No group sales will be sold at the door!
Children and student tickets (with school ids) are also just $10 each.
NEW! By recent Board approval, there is now a $1 per ticket discount for the Red Hat Society members and also for Bay Pines employees (with ids).

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.

The Gulfport Community Players have just closed a two-act drama by Jeff Baron entitled, Visiting Mr. Green, at the HIckman Theater.
The cast included David Harris as Mr. Green and Rudy Gonzalez as Ross.
The story line involved the elderly Mr. Green wandering into New York traffic and almost getting hit by a car driven by Ross, a young corporate. For this crime, Ross was given a 6- month sentence that involved community service of helping this recent widower once a week for 6 months. At first, these two men didn’t even want to be in the same room with each other, but, after a bit of time passes and they got to know one another, those attitudes changed completely and they really started caring about each other. Soon old wounds that they've both have hid for many years are opened and the real drama started. Audiences found this play to be very absorbing, very moving, and fit for all ages.
