Arts & Culture


The Players Studio is excited to announce its new Studio Director, Jennifer Bushinger Ortiz. Jennifer Bushinger Ortiz has nearly two decades of professional theatre experience ranging from acting in two national tours or costume designing Connecticut Free Shakespeare to directing nearly 100 productions across the Tri-State area. Relocating from Manhattan with her husband and three-year-old son two and half years ago, she brings a wealth of industry experience, as well as nonprofit leadership to The Players Studio.

“I am honored to join this dynamic performing arts organization and contribute to their incredible 90-year legacy” says Bushinger Ortiz. “There are several new and exciting prospects on the horizon for The Players Studio. We only seek to add to its reputation and provide the highest quality arts education in and around our community.” 

The Players Studio offers classes in all styles of dance, singing, and acting, as well as multiple workshops from perfecting your monologue to playwriting. This season the studio expanded its curriculum by adding more classes for the homeschool student along with Mommy & Me classes. Studio class discount packages are now available. Call the studio at 941-552-8879 for a list of upcoming auditions and classes being offered.
