Here’s a look at some of the events planned by the Naples Players in the months ahead:

Trees and Teas Festival
Dec. 4 – 19
The Naples Players and Gulf Coast International Properties are kicking off the holiday season with a new arts and culture holiday experience for the whole family. At the TNP Trees & Teas Festival, you will stroll through a wonderland of themed holiday trees designed by Naples’ finest artists while enjoying one of the decadent teas provided by The Naples Spice and Tea Exchange.
Attendees will enjoy carolers and performers and the chance to purchase one of a limited number of custom-designed wreaths to deck your halls at home! The festival takes place inside the iconic Naples Players community theatre on 5th Avenue South in downtown Naples.
The festival is open from 2 to 9 p.m. daily Dec. 4 – Dec. 19, but advance tickets and reservations are required to promote safe distancing. Tickets are free for current TNP season ticket holders. General admission is $18 for adults, and $12 for children. Admission includes a free cup of tea. Tickets for the VIP preview party are $60 each and include a cocktail hour and meet-and-greet with the artists.

It’s A Wonderful Life:
A Live Radio Play
Dec. 19

The Naples Players presents It’s a Wonderful Life: A Live Radio Play from Cambier Park at 7:30 p.m. on Dec. 19. Enjoy the performance live in-person in socially distanced Cambier Park; or select a virtual ticket to view the performance online from anywhere in the world.
This heartwarming classic is a show within a show. It’s December 24, 1946, in Studio A at WBFR Radio, and a cast of six actors is preparing to present It’s a Wonderful Life live to the listening audience. With the help of only a sound-effects artist, the ensemble re-enacts the story of George Bailey, a young man whose dreams of traveling the world are thwarted by his sense of responsibility to the family business. Down on his luck, Bailey, compassionate yet disheartened, is at the end of his rope. He questions his purpose in life and considers ending it all. Just then, an angel arrives to show Bailey how the lives of those he loves would be affected if he were not around. The story’s message is profound and remains relevant for today’s audiences.

Feb. 25 – March 7

The final production of TNP’s “Culture Around Collier” outdoor series will be Footloose Feb. 25 through March 7 in Baker Park.
The explosive movie musical bursts onto the live concert stage at Baker Park! With dynamic new songs augmenting the powerhouse hits from its bestselling Oscar-nominated score, Footloose celebrates the exhilaration of youth, the wisdom of listening to one another, and the power of forgiveness.
When Ren and his mother move from Chicago to a small farming town, he is prepared for the inevitable adjustment period at his new high school. But he’s not prepared for the rigorous local edicts, including a ban on dancing instituted by the local preacher, who is determined to exercise control over the town’s youth. When the reverend’s rebellious daughter sets her sights on Ren, her roughneck boyfriend tries to sabotage Ren’s reputation, with many of the locals eager to believe the worst about the new kid. The heartfelt story that emerges pins a father longing for the son he lost against a young man aching for the father who walked out on him.
