Manatee Players 2012-13 season announced

“Miss Saigon” will make its Manatee Players premiere during the company’s just announced 2012-13 season.

The national award-winning theater troupe is letting folks have a little fun with guessing the opener, though, which will also be a downtown Bradenton debut when it runs Aug. 16 through Sept. 2.

“We can’t legally tell you what this show title is, but you don’t have to be blonde to figure it out!” said Denny Miller, the Manatee Players’ marketing director, in a statement issued this afternoon.

The majority of the roster is confirmed.

It features “Evita” (Sept. 20-Oct. 7), “Pump Boys and the Dinettes” (Oct. 25-Nov. 11), “Plaid Tidings” (Nov. 28-Dec. 16), “A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum” (Feb. 21-March 10, 2013), “Miss Saigon” (March 28-April 14, 2013) and “Fiddler on the Roof” (May 2-19, 2013).

In addition to “Miss Saigon,” “Pump Boys and the Dinettes” as well as “Plaid Tidings” will be first timers to the Manatee Players’ stage.

There’s still an opening for the Jan. 17-Feb. 3, 2013 slot.

“Hopefully, the TBA show will be announced in February,” Miller wrote.
