The Players Centre Hires New Artistic Director

Arts & Culture

The Players Centre for Performing Arts is thrilled to announce the hiring of their new artistic director, Lee Gundersheimer. The 92-year-old organization looks forward to growing through Gundersheimer’s strong skill set cultivated over many years and in various areas of the theatre. He will begin January 18, to overlap the departure of 15-year producing artistic director, Jeffery Kin. Gundersheimer is excited to be back in Florida where he began his theatre career over 40 years ago. Raised in Miami, Lee is a graduate of the BFA program in Theatre at Florida State University and received his Actor’s Equity Card before graduating college as one of the original apprentices at the Burt Reynold’s Dinner Theatre in Jupiter, Fl. where he worked onstage with Sally Field, Martin Sheen, and Carol Burnett among others. Gundersheimer was based in New York City for many years and built his first theater on the upper westside, Avalon Rep, before he was 30. He then helped plan, build, and was the Producing Director of the Century Center for the Performing Arts in Union Square, where two Pulitzer Prize winning plays had their off-Broadway commercial runs. All the while working professionally, Gundersheimer taught academically in multiple universities, and for 10 years was the Industry Liaison for the Tisch School of the Arts at New York University.
