Welcome to the Banyan Theater Company of Sarasota, Florida!

The Banyan Theater Company mounted its first productions in the summer of 2002 – Harold Pinter’s “Betrayal” followed by George Bernard Shaw’s “Don Juan in Hell.” The company made a strong first impression with audiences and critics alike, and was hailed as “the hottest item on the Sarasota menu.”

We have stayed true to our mission of producing intelligent, significant plays in the summer, showcasing the works of both classic and contemporary playwrights. We offer plays which are different and challenging, giving you much to talk about and many issues to consider.

We look forward to your joining us for our 15th season in 2016 for the kind of theater you have demanded of us and which has made a difference in our community. See you at the theater!

Jerry M. Finn, Executive Director
