Background Statement
   Charlotte Players had its first organizational meeting on Oct. 16, 1961 at North Port Charlotte Community Center. The group's 1st production was "Now is the Time" performed at the Charlotte Lanes Bowling Alley on May 1962. The show had a cast of 7 people. Tickets were $.50 for 2 sold out performances. The 1st  president of the Charlotte Players was Peggy Cummins, elected in 1962.  In 1963, the Charlotte Players adapted their first set of By-Laws and had a membership of 30 people. After meeting in community buildings & garages,  an empty store was offered as a temporary home. A couple months later the group was asked to move out to make way for paying renters. By now the performing group had acquired furniture, stage sets & props. The situation was remedied by General Development Corp. who gave permission to store everything at the old Truss Plant, in Pt. Charlotte. Productions where held at the Elk's Club of Punta Gorda, the P.G. Women's Club, the American Legion Hall and Charlotte High School. In March of '66, Vasco Peeples offered free use of the former Elk's bldg. It was fixed up as a little theater, and they stayed for 3 1/2 years.
   Charlotte Players moved their performances to the Cultural Center theater in Jan. of 1968 so they could perform larger shows. "Never Too Late" was their 1st show and seen by over 400 people. 
   In Sept. 1969, the Charlotte Players purchased their 1st building; the White Elephant Trading Post, in Charlotte Harbor. The building was built in 1924 as a General Store. Charlotte Players Pres., Marie Mast Ballou, facilitated the purchase for $17,000 which meant a mortgage payment of $100. Mr. Cy Harader was Pres. from 1979-1990. Under Cy's leadership, the Charlotte Players received their IRS letter of determination in 1981, giving them a 502(C)3 non-profit status. John Lund started directing for the Charlotte Players in 1982 and was soon hired as the 1st resident artistic director. Charlotte Players presented their 1st musical, The Pajama Game, in 1984, with a cast of 20+. A gala was held at the Charlotte Harbor Yacht Club, in 1985 to celebrate their Silver Anniversary. At the event, Helen Langdon paid of the mortgage at the Bayshore building. The Bayshore building was sold in the early 90's. New property was purchased in Murdock with hopes of someday building a theater. In 1993, Janet Castro was elected president. Judy Malbuisson was hired as the 1st Executive Dir.  Judy held the position from 1993-2001. During the mid 90's, several rental spaces were secured to work from. A unit was rented on Tamiami Trail in 1996 that remained the office/rehearsal hall and workshop for over 15 years.
   In 2002 the Cultural Center theater underwent a complete remodel. During this period,  performances were held in the newly built Conference Center at CCCC. Performances in the theater returned in fall of 2003 only to be stopped again 2004 because of the destruction of Hurricane Charley. Hal Williams, a dedicated set designer for the Charlotte Players was president at the time and made the decision to move the 2004-05 performances to the Charlotte Performing Arts Center, in Punta Gorda. Shows returned to the Cultural Center Theater in 2005-06 under the presidential leadership of Lynne Ziegler. Sherrie Moody was hired as a new Executive Director in 2006 after the Murdock property was sold and remains the Players E.D. to present. The previous year, past president Ernestine Zipoy, Lynne Ziegler and Sharynn Kozenko had taken on the responsibilities of running the organization. A 50th Anniversary Gala was held at Visani, in 2009 with members performing "On Stage for Murder". Over 100 people were in attendance.
   Feb. of 2010, marked the purchase of the Charlotte Players current home. The building was purchased after a bequest from Helen Langdon. The building is known as the Charlotte Players Community Theater Center and houses a small black box theater called the Langdon Playhouse. Jan. of 2012, the Charlotte Players in partnership with Shawn Smith of Shawn & Company, became the Charlotte County affiliate for the Dolly Parton Imagination Library (CCIL). The program is designed to increase literacy in children ages birth to five. Since then, CCIL has given out over 10,000 FREE books to pre-school children in Charlotte County. Charlotte Players hosted their 1st Comedy For A Cause Event in late Aug. 2013. Seven comedians, all notable leaders in the Community volunteered to be laughed at for the Charlotte Players. The successful improvisation benefit is planned to become an annual event. Charlotte Players opened their new TV & Film On Camera Acting programs in Sept. (2013). A variety of services are offered to local actors; headshots, audition videos, vocal instruction , acting classes and workshops geared for on camera acting. Many of these new services are not provided on this coast and actors must travel to Miami or Tampa.The Players see a need for an acting hub in Southwest Florida for all actors.

Statement from the Board Chair/Board President
I (Steve Pignataro) have been with the Charlotte Players since 1990 as a subscriber, donor, actor, set construction, board member, secretary, Vice President and presently President. Through these years, I have seen Charlotte Players grow tremendously.
One of our greatest successes has been the purchase of a building (in Port Charlotte), with help of a bequest from one of our dedicated members. During the 3 1/2 years we have been here, areas have been created for a rehearsal hall, carpentry shop, lobby, offices, black box theater and storage. This was accomplished with the help from the Selby Foundation (air-conditioners), Charlotte Community Foundation (sound equipment), donations and volunteers. Not a small feat considering the condition of the 7,500 sq ft building when we moved in. Through ingenuity, we were able to recycle some of the articles remaining from the previous owner. It is not difficult to purchase a building but the challenge is to maintain and continue to improve the facility.  
Although we have a black box theater (capacity 70), we must perform off-premises for larger audiences. The challenge is to bring in enough money from ticket sales to cover the cost of performances and overhead. We have not been successful in covering all expenses. Our short term goal is to build a black box theater large enough to seat 180 patrons. This would avoid rental fees and give us the opportunity to extend the performance if there is a demand.
We have 250  season subscribers, 220 members, and  665 volunteers. We have two paid staff (Executive Director and Assistant to the Executive Director). Volunteers fill the gap in the office and support for performances. Last year we averaged 1676 single tickets per show. Maintaining a good subscriber and member base has always been a challenge. We endeavor to thank our subscribers, members and volunteers throughout the year. We promote our shows as much as possible with advertising and producing shows that would appeal to our demographics.
Another challenge is being recognized in the community as a theater. Many do not know that Charlotte County has a Community Theater.  Our challenge is to make everyone aware of Charlotte Players.  However, the cost for advertising has become prohibitive and we pick and chose where advertise our advertising dollars are spent. We have a new web-site that makes automatic adjustments for smart phone and have hired a part time person to improve our presence on Facebook, Twitter and You tube. We are also trying to be more consistent with email blasts to keep people continually aware of what the organization is doing in house and in the community.
Charlotte Players is an advocate of children through our five annual Kids OnStage workshops/camps. This year’s enrollment was over 210.  We believe that children are our future not only in the theater but in all aspects of life. We are proud that our student enrollment continues to increase.
Charlotte Players and Hair by Shawn Salon & Spa have partnered with Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library to bring books to children; birth through five (5) years old.  Charlotte County Public Schools has joined this successful  collaborative effort. Over 10,000 FREE books have been given to pre-school children in Charlotte County since January of 2012.
I believe in the Charlotte Players and their work. Charlotte Players is truly one of my passions and feel it is a great asset to the Arts in Charlotte County.
Statement from the CEO/Executive Director
My tenure with the Charlotte Players began in 2006. I had previously been employed by the Cultural Center of Charlotte County as their theater and facility manager for 5 years. In May of 2005, I decided to return to my collegiate studies to finish a degree in Organizational Management. Months before finishing I was contacted by Ernestine Zipoy, then president of the Charlotte Players and asked if I would be interested in the Executive Director position.
   Almost nine years have passed since that time and I had enjoyed every day with the organization. Well, almost every day. I've highlighted below what I feel are some of the most outstanding achievements of the organization during the last six years.
  • An emphasis has been made to improve all print materials; Playbills, Season Flyers, Advertisements, Web Site 
  • Wider use of media resources to include newspaper, radio, television, magazines, social network
  • Greater involvement within the community, business networking and partnering
  • Box office hour changes- went from being open 12 weeks a year to being opened 8 months of the year at the Cultural Center of Charlotte County. The Langdon Playhouse box office is open 10 months of the year.
  • 2006 started accepting credit cards
  • 2007 started on-line ticketing
  • Kids OnStage Programming was started in 2006
  • Charlotte Players Community Theater Center building was purchased in 2010
  • The framework for the Langdon Playhouse was built in 2011. After a successful spring, the Board of Directors decided to invest in a permanent structure to be built with insulation, ceiling tiles and a sound/light booth.
  • The 2013-14 Charlotte Players theatrical season will include 2 different drama/comedy/musical series, with over 60 performances in 
  • Introduction of the Dolly Parton-Charlotte County Imagination Library to Charlotte County
  • Introduction of our Film & TV: On Camera Acting programming
An enormous amount of work by our dedicated volunteers made these changes possible. The results are very rewarding and satisfying. I look forward to the next six years with the Charlotte Players and know that even greater achievements are in our future.
Charlotte Players offers four "Main Stage" theatrical productions each season at the Cultural Center of Charlotte County Theater, in Port Charlotte. These twenty-four shows include two musicals and two straight shows that encompass two weeks. A week of night rehersals preceeds opening night. Auditions for these shows are normally held 6-8 weeks prior to a show moving into the theater. Artistic Directors, Music Directors, Choreographers, Set Designers, Properties Managers, Costumers and Stage Managers are hired for each of the four productions.
Main Stage productions are scheduled November through April, when the bulk of our winter residents are in the area.

Short Term Success
Not only has the number of shows changed but also the months in which they are offered. At the end of the 2012-13 season we hope to see only small reduction in the number of total patrons with a better utilization of the rental space. 
Long Term Success
Charlotte Players have been providing our Main Stage productions for residents of Southwest Florida since 1961. Our success can be attributed to our talented and dedicated volunteers who have brought quality theater to the stage for over 50 years.
The 2012-13 season reflects a change in the number of show normal show offerings. Five different productions have traditionally been in the "Main Stage" Series. This was reduced this year in an effort to reduce expenses. Now that the Langdon Playhouse is completed in our office/rehearsal facility, we are scheduling a variety of entertainment shows in the space, making one less show at the Cultural Center a cost saving measure.
Program Success Monitoring
Final year-end financials will give a clear picture as to the success of the show reduction in our 2012-13 season as well as the calendar chnge in the offerings. The Charlotte Players Board of Directors will be monitoring the seasons success monthly and will determine whether to duplicate the formula again for the 2013-14 season in February of 2013.
Program Success Examples
The vast majority of our customers are retired. It was with their feedback that shows times were changed from 8:00pm to 7:30pm. Matinees have been successful over the last couple years and more afternoon offerings are being made as a result.
Five education Kids OnStage camps and workshops are run March through July each year. Theater instructional classes are also scheduled with the beginning of each school year. These run 6-8 weeks with curriculum that includes all facets of a theatrical production including backstage, scenic design, props, costumes, musci sound, as well as performing on stage. All camps culiminate with a muscial production. The 2011-12 year had over 200 student participants.

Short Term Success
Our success with the Kids OnStage program has paved the way to for the introduction to the Dolly Parton-Imagination Library program (started in January 2012.) The community now looks to the Charlotte Players for educational programming for pre-school and school aged children.
The fall class offereing were started in 2011. We hope to see an increase in enrollment whn these become available in September 2012.
Long Term Success
Kids OnStage programming was started during the summer of 2006. The first and only camp that year had 15 students. The following year, two camps were held with a total of 30 students. Since then the program has growth with leaps and bounds resulting in over 200 student registrations in the last fiscal year.
Program Success Monitoring
A volunteer program coordinator has been with Kids OnStage since its origin in 2006. We strongely believe that this needs to become a part-time paid position in order for the program to grow. At this time funds are not avaiable to make this happen. We have seen a steady increase in students despite the lagging economy that has affected families in our area.
Program Success Examples
The increase instudent enrollment each year is the strongest example of this program's success. Our partnership with the Charlotte County Public School System has also made stronger because our deepening connection with students and instructors within the community.
Charlotte Players also provide a scholarship to graduating high schoool seniors in Charlotte County. Students from 3 different high schools are invited to apply. Over $14,000 has been awared over the last 4 years to students who intend to have collegiate studies in the performing arts. 
In 2010, Charlotte Players purchased an 8,000 suare foot metal building. The structure was built in 1972 and had previously housed a plumbing warehouse. Talented volunteers and supportive businesses have transformed the building into a community Theater hub called the Charlotte Players Community Theater Center. Within the structure a small black theater has been built called The Langdon Playhouse. In addition to small dramas, the organization presents a variety of entertainment offerings ranging from music related shows to magic, karaoke, bands and variety shows.

Short Term Success
The short term success of The Langdon Playhouse has encouraged additional financial investment in the space. Through the donation of a supportive patron, we were able to purchase an install new air conditioning. Additional installation, a sound & light booth, and a new portable stage have all been created for the black box. These additions will allow the organization more flexiblily in show selection in the future. Keeping the Langdon a multi-purpose performance space is of up most importance to the Charlotte Players not only for shows but also as a rental, income producing space.
Long Term Success
The Langdon had a successful first year that included over 30 shows. The long term success of the Langdon is the Charlotte Players primary goal at this time. Higher revenues resulting from patronage of the black box will allow the organization to continue to reduce the number of rental performances at the Cultural Center theater which has proven to be very costly over the last couple of years. We are encouraged with number of patrons in our first year and are scheduling a larger selection of offerings this season.The Langdon Playhouse offers the Charlotte Players some flexibility with scheduling shows sometimes that we have no controll over with renting the Cultural Center Theater. At the Cultural Center we contract for specific dates. Their facility is most often contracted for dates immediately following ours. If a show has large tickets sales, we don't have the option of running it longer. In the Langdon, we can present additional dates with considerably less overhead.
Program Success Monitoring
Ticket sales give immediate results on the success of individual shows. We are continually monitoring what shows have better ticket sales. Knowing our customer is essential to the ultimate success of the Langdon. 
Program Success Examples
Charlotte Players had hoped to create another venue for topical/edgy dramas that would not be appropriate for our "Main Stage" series. The Langdon Playhouse, thus far, has appealed to a different patron demographic and from different geographical areas than traditional/previous show productions. The theater has already created an entirely new patron data base. Sending promotional post cards to these customers is considerably less expenssive than costly newspaper or magazine ads.
In January of 2012, the Charlotte Players in partnership with a local business brought Dolly Parton's Imagination Library to Charlotte County. As the nonprofit umbrella for the Charlotte County Imagination Library (CCIL), we fundraise, register students, maintain the financial records for
pre-school children who reside in Charlotte County. The program's focus is to provide free books to children from birth to age 5. The program promotes a love of reading and a regard for diversity, along with improving self-esteem and confidence. Without the written word there would be no playwrights or scripts to perform from.

Population Served Children Only (5 - 14 years) Children and Youth (0 - 19 years)
Short Term Success
We are very fortunate to have partnered with the Charlotte County Public Schools on this project. The CCIL Advisory Board meet for the first time in Ausgust. At that time, Administration from the school district informed the council that they had already secured $6,000 in grants that will be awarded before years end. CCIL needs to raise $25 per registered student. The school district would like to register 1,000 students in the fall. These same granters have commnitted to $14,000 over the next 4 years.
Long Term Success
The program currently has 250 students enrolled. Once these children reach the age of 5 the free books are no longer delivered. The first book any child receives is The Little Engine That Could. The last is Get Ready for Kindergarten. Children who are enrolled from birth can receive up to 60 books. If a family has multiple children who fall into the pre-school bracket, each child will receive their own library without any financial obligation on the part of the family.
Program Success Monitoring
Registered children will represent the immediate success of the program here in Charlotte County. We have a goal of registering over 1,000 children each year for the next 5 years. That equates to at least $20,000 needed per year. Fundraising is diffinately a key factor in seeing that the CCIL can meet their goal.
Program Success Examples
A "Roll-Out" party is planned for children in February 2013 with a Gala (for adults) two weeks later. The Advisory Board will be responsible for planning both events. Our local Clear Channel Radio Stations have donated over $80,000 worth of free advertising for CCIL to be used by January 1, 2013. The community has been very supportive with the project thus far.
Description Charlotte Players has started programming for TV & Film actors. A variety of services are now offered to local actors; headshots, audition videos, acting classes and workshops geared for on camera acting. There is a distinct difference between "on stage" and "on camera" acting. Many of these services are not available in southwest Florida and actors must travel to Tampa or Miami to fine the assistance they need.

Long Term Success Charlotte Players plan to become a hub for actors who seek to work on stage and the television/film industries. We are currently seeking information on how to create a data base that contains headshots, acting resumes and contact information for casting directors.
Program Success Monitoring This new programming will be evaluated quarterly by staff to see what changes need to be made to improve the quality of the services being provided.
Program Success Examples Success will be evaluated by increased revenues and participation with the program.

   Charlotte Players have a wonderful partnership with the Charlotte County School system. We currently provide support with drama programs at Deep Creek, Neil Armstrong and Sally Jones Elementary Schools as well as Charlotte and Port Charlotte High Schools. Our set, prop and costume departments act as a clearing house for these schools in addition to providing professional acting direction when asked.
   Charlotte Players brought the Dolly Parton Imagination Library, a literacy program to pre-school children, to Charlotte County in January of 2012. Since then, a Advisory Board has been established (for the Charlotte County Imagination Library) which includes community leaders and school administration to assist in fundraising and registration of children.
   We have a working relationship with many of the theaters in Southwest Florida. Ad space is traded with Venice Theater (Venice), Lemon Bay Playhouse (Englewood), the Charlotte Performing Arts Center, Charlotte County Jazz Society, Charlotte Symphony Orchestra and Laboratory Theater in Fort Myers each year. These partnershipshave also been benificial for securing costumes and special set pieces for productions.
   Charlotte Players provides free meeting space for several groups in our community such as the Disabled American Veterans and Charlotte County Movers and Shakers. Both groups have made monetary and in-kind donations to our organization.
