A Note from Artistic Director, Jeffery Kin:

“I’ve been thinking about this season, and ALL the events and benefits and shows we produce. I feel that each year, The Players takes a leap of faith and asks hundreds of volunteers and thousands of patrons to come along.  I truly BELIEVE that the work we do is more than just producing live theater.  I BELIEVE that the work we do changes lives. I BELIEVE that through our art, we can make the world a better place. So, I invite you to join The Players family and BELIEVE in an entire season of creating and entertaining and making our community better, one day at a time!”
