History of Carrollwood Players

Founding members of Carrollwood Players.

Carrollwood Players Theatre is Tampa’s longest continuously operating community theatre company, and over the years, we have truly become “Tampa’s Community Theatre.”

Starting from humble beginnings, CWP formed in 1981 and met at the Carrollwood Recreation Center. The initial production, “Plaza Suite” was performed at Carrollwood Elementary School, “Godspell” was done in the auditorium of the Methodist Church, and “Veronica’s Room” was staged in a small golf clubhouse.

We relocated to the Drew Park Civic Club, renamed the Manhattan Theater, at the intersection of Ohol Street and Manhattan Avenue in December 1982. During the next five years, our productions included, among others, “Stop the World, I Want to Get Off,” “That Champion Season,” “Arsenic and Old Lace,” “The Bad Seed,” “Ten Nights in a Barroom,” and “18 Nervous Gumshoes.”

In May 1987, Carrollwood Players Theatre moved to the Village Shopping Center on North Dale Mabry and then in 1993 to our present location in Plantation Plaza, 4333 Gunn Highway. Carrollwood Players presents nine plays each season. In addition, there is an Annual One Act Weekend where aspiring playwrights can submit their scripts and if chosen, get their worked performed on stage. Also Nine and Numb performs regular monthly improv shows and Life Amplified showcases variety acts and poets three times per year.

CWP also presents a variety of other ongoing special events in our new Black Box theatre.

Carrollwood Players is proud to offer theatre for all with the support of the Arts Council of Hillsborough County and the Hillsborough County Board of County Commisioners.

Our Mainstage and Black Box shows are presented with the support of the Arts Council of Hillsborough County and the Hillsborough County Board of County Commissioners.
