About The Gallery Players

The Gallery Players has provided Brooklyn audiences with professional-quality theater since 1967. Located in Park Slope but beloved on both sides of the Brooklyn Bridge, the Gallery Players is dedicated to producing classic and contemporary plays and musicals as well as premiering new works. Recipient of the Off-Off Broadway Review’s 2000 Award for Lifetime Achievement, the 2013 Leonard da Vinci Award from the Beaux Arts Society, and the New York Innovative Theatre Awards for outstanding musical for Urinetown, Yank, and Like You Like It. The Gallery Players’ season comprises three plays and three musicals, covering a remarkably wide range of dramatic and comedic styles. The season finale is the annual Black Box New Play Festival, which gives premiere performances of new works by playwrights.

Gallery Players resides in a 99-seat theater in Park Slope, Brooklyn. Gallery’s reputation, critical acclaim, and popularity among audiences and artists puts it in an enviable position among its volunteer-only and Off-Off Broadway comparables.

The Mission of the Gallery Players

The Gallery Players’ mission is to provide the Brooklyn Community with professional-quality theater at an affordable cost, to nurture and support theater artists, and to cultivate an appreciation of theater in future generations.

The Gallery Players does not have a resident acting company, and we audition actors, singers, and dancers for each show separately. You can find out about our upcoming and current auditions in the Opportunities section of our website; we also advertise our auditions in Back Stage, Playbill.com, and other theater trade papers.
