Carrollwood Players offer military discount weekend

In honor of Veteran’s Day, Carrollwood Players is offering active military and veterans a discount to enjoy the final two performances of “California Suite” at the theater, 4333 Gunn Highway.

Military personnel and a guest can see the Neil Simon play Friday, Nov. 13 and Saturday, Nov. 14, at 8 p.m. for $10 a ticket.

Though the local nonprofit community theater regularly discounts all military admission, this 50 percent savings was “our way to say thank you for everything you do and have done on a daily basis,” said Anne Lehman, Carrollwood Players board of directors’ president. “We want our servicemen and women to come and enjoy a fun night of live entertainment.”

California Suite tells a story in three vignettes.

The first segment features Marvin, in town for his nephew’s bar mitzvah, must explain to his wife, as only a Neil Simon character can, the existence of a very drunk prostitute in his room. In yet another story, we learn that the best laid vacation plans of two couples can go riotously awry. And finally, a pair of Hollywood stars are in town for the Academy Awards, as well as some amusing, eyebrow raising activities.

Discounted military tickets to California Suite may be purchased online at carrollwood-players-theatre.ticketleap.com/california-suite/. Regular tickets are $20 for adults, $17 for seniors and students. For information, visit www.carrollwoodplayers.org.

Tampa’s nonprofit community theater since 1981, Carrollwood Players offers a regular season of quality live theater in its 100-seat playhouse, along with alternative theater selections in its new intimate 60-seat black box performance space.
