The Naples Players’ Trees & Teas Festival opens this Friday, December 4th and runs through December 19th in downtown Naples. The festival, held at the iconic Sugden Community Theatre on 5th Avenue South features over two dozen trees designed by local artists and themed to represent a variety of famous Broadway shows and musicals.
Trees and themes vary from traditional to wacky to completely reimagined artists interpretations of recognizable shows like The Little Mermaid, Elf, The Sound of Music, and Mary Poppins.
While walking through the wonderland of trees, attendees will also enjoy live carolers, a holiday wreath sale, and a variety of holiday hot teas courtesy of The Spice and Tea Exchange of Naples.
The festival is open daily from 2 to 9 p.m. but requires tickets and reservations to maintain a safe number of occupants and proper social distancing guidelines. Walk-up tickets from The Naples Players (TNP) Box Office are available on a first-come, first-serve basis if reservations are not full. Admission is $12 for children and $18 for adults. Children under three are free of charge.
All proceeds benefit the non-profit theatre that estimates losses of over $1.6 million due to show cancellations and ticket refunds due to COVID-19. The festival is sponsored locally by Gulf Coast International Properties and Gulfshore Life Magazine and each tree is also proudly sponsored by local businesses, families, and individuals.
