Renovation & Construction Updates

About Our Renovation

The Naples Players opened our facility on 5th Avenue in 1998, after the City of Naples invited the theater to be placed downtown to rejuvenate and enhance the then struggling downtown area. 25 years later The Naples Players is investing in our community once again, this time to protect and enhance the now thriving, world class downtown area.

By renovating both of our existing performance spaces, and adding a third space to host our renowned education and community programs, TNP is able to deploy the latest technologies and ensure the highest quality performances, all while representing the high-class, small town charm that Naples deserves. But more than that, TNP’s renovation protects the organization’s future by securing our ability to meet current & future demand, while more deeply fulfilling our mission to build community through exceptional access to the power of theater.

Our renovated facility will be the only LEED certified energy efficient theater in the State of Florida; offering unparalleled accessibility, like a “Sensory Friendly” seating box & state-of-the-art hearing assistance technologies; allow us to deepen programmatic pathways with our 40+ community partner organizations; and enhance the volunteer and audience experience for unparalleled artistry.

Several naming opportunities still exist, including our popular “name a seat” program. You can help us hit our fundraising goals by participating.

Road Closures – 4th Avenue South

ROAD REOPENS DECEMBER 30th, 2023

Intermittent Daytime Road/Lane Closings will Continue Through April 2024

The Naples Players is going through an exciting renovation to drastically enhance the theater’s appearance on 4th Avenue. However, to ensure the safety of our neighbors, the street will need to be closed at various times through April of of 2024 as demolition and construction are completed.

The Naples Players is committed to working directly with The City of Naples to open the street as often as it is safe to do so, but your safety is our top priority.

The map to the right demonstrates the signage and closure plan. Please note that the Trulucks & Inn on Fifth valet located at the restaurant on 4th Avenue will still be OPEN throughout the project. Easily access the valet via 6th Street & 4th Avenue.
