Have your holiday party by the beach at PBTS

Players by the Sea is the perfect place to spread the cheer! The theatre has private space available for hosting your holiday parties or any event this season.  Local businesses can combine a live performance of A Christmas Carol with a pre-show or post-show private party in the Studio Theatre and classroom.

Their ‘Studio Theatre’ is an intimate, 80-seat performance space that transforms beautifully to the perfect party spot!  An open stage area works as a dance floor, a space for setting up tables, presentations, or whatever a creative mind can come up with.  The built-in theatre seating gives added space for your guests to relax.  Connected to the Studio Theatre is our classroom, which is available for an add-on.  The classroom is perfect for setting up a bar, serving food (no restrictions on caterer choice), or using as a staging area.

The corporate party package includes: tickets to A Christmas Carol for $22 per ticket and every seat will be reserved.  The Studio Theatre rental is $500 and the classroom add-on is $250. Please note that event insurance is required for a holiday party at PBTS.

A Christmas Carol opens on the PBTS Main Stage Friday, December 6th and Saturday, December 7th with shows at 8 p.m. both nights. From then until December 22nd, shows will run each Thursday, Friday, and Saturday evening at 8 pm and Sunday afternoons at 2 p.m. (See the linked article above)

The classic play is written by Charles Dickens, adapted by Romulus Linney.  The show is an adaptation of the story of Ebenezer Scrooge’s journey from an embittered, ungenerous creature into a giving, caring human being at the hands of three spirits, who, one Christmas Eve, show him what life means.  This richly textured play brings the full spirit of the book, as well as those of Christmases Past, Present and Yet To Come, to life on the stage.

Reserve your space while it is still available.  For more information, contact Suzanne Hudson-Smith at (904) 249-0289 or email.
