Special Release on Ann Morrison Performance

WITTY MUSICAL TO BE

FEATURED AT PLAYERS

CIRCLE THEATRE

 

Broadway Actress Ann Morrison to

Perform in “My Furniture Set”

No, “My Furniture Set” is not about a furniture store.  Broadway actress Ann Morrison, appearing in the Players Circle Theatre, May 8-9, performs a witty, musical revue taking you through the furniture moments of our lives in stories, original songs, and timeless classics.

Ms. Morrison has enjoyed a 40-year career as an actor, singer, writer, teacher, and director.  She starred on Broadway in Stephen Sondheim’s “Merrily We Roll Along,” off-Broadway, and in London’s West End.  The quintessential cabaret artist has performed in major venues across the country.

Ms. Morrison will be accompanied by her arranger/accompanist John Shirley.  He has performed in venues from L.A. to London.  He spent many years in New York writing songs and specialty numbers.

  My Furniture Set will be performed on Saturday, May 8, at 7:00 p.m., and Sunday, May 9, at 2:00 p.m.  Tickets are $25 general admission, and $35 VIP.  Contact 239-800-3292 or PlayersCircleTheater.com.

The Players Circle Theatre is located at the Shell Factory and Nature Park, 16554 North Cleveland Ave., North Fort Myers.  The 200 seat Players Circle Theatre has been converted into a nightclub/cabaret style facility, which will have 74 limited, spaced seating, temperature checks, thorough sanitizing, and masks are worn by all audience members until seated.  In compliance with all CDC guidelines.

A special food and drink menu is available for nightclub patrons, serving delicious, shareable plates and drinks in the theatre 45 minutes before performances and during shows.  Full dinner and bar also available at the adjacent Southern Grill. Call 239-995-3999 for reservations.

The Players Circle Theatre was developed by veterans of the Southwest Florida theatre movement, Carrie Lund Cacioppo and Robert Cacioppo.  They are prominent faces of theatre in Lee County for over 35 years, having started Lee County’s first professional theatre on Sanibel Island and the Florida Repertory Theatre, which has been named “One of America’s best regional theatres” by The Wall Street Journal.  Players Circle Theatre is a professional black box theatre providing Broadway-level entertainment.  Follow it online at PlayersCircle.org.
