It addition to its season of plays, the Players has planned several special events to mark the occasion, beginning with a 20th Anniversary Gala on Sat., Sept. 15 at the legendary Hippodrome Theater.

The Players is the only professional theater company in the entire Mid-Atlantic region whose mission is to present works of relevance to the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community.

The final production of the Players' 2011-12 season, The Musical of Musical (The Musical!) will open on Thurs., May 10, after a low-priced preview on May 9. In this hilarious satire of musical theater, one story becomes five delightful musicals, each written in the distinctive style of a different master of the form – including Rodgers and Hammerstein, Andrew Lloyd Webber, Stephen Sondheim, Jerry Herman, and Kander and Ebb.
