The Gulfport Community Players have been delighting audiences since 1980. In our early days, shows were performed at the City of Gulfport's Recreation Center. In 2001, the Players began performing at the newly opened Catherine A. Hickman Theater of Gulfport. Named after the Players' founder, this 172-seat, ADA-compliant facility is owned and operated by the City of Gulfport. The theater is located at the intersection of Beach Boulevard South and 26th Avenue South in Gulfport, Florida.
