Welcome to the home of the Orange Players!
“We must all do theatre – to find out
who we are, and to discover
who we could become.”

CELEBRATING 50 YEARS OF COMMUNITY THEATRE & PERFORMING ARTS!
Since its inception in 1974, the Orange Players continues to bring together its devotion for the performing arts and to the community. This powerful combination affords the ability to draw from many resources to bring quality performances to the stage, and allows seasoned and unseasoned theater lovers an opportunity to participate in a wide range of performance genres, both on the stage and behind the scenes. Theatre is something everyone can be involved in - whether writing, directing, producing, performing, sewing costumes, operating light or sound boards, designing programs, stage managing, organizing properties, designing and building sets, selling tickets, greeting patrons, handing out programs, ushering, supporting us in the audience, sponsoring, graphic design…the list is endless.
The Orange Players provides opportunities for all individuals to expand their talents, learn new skills, challenge themselves, and become part of a supportive and interactive network while building lasting friendships and wonderful memories. Adding to the continued successes of dramatic plays, comedies, and musicals which the theatre is best known for, is the community outreach program comprised of several very talented members bringing readings and musical performances to senior citizen groups, senior living residences and other community organizations on a regular basis. The newest addition to our regular season on stage is the highly successful “Acting Up!”, an evening of unpublished, original one act plays. Now in its eigth season, this is an opportunity for playwrights, directors, and actors of all skill levels to collaborate and bring new works to life on stage and virtually via Zoom during COVID restrictions.
We look forward to keeping the ties of theatre and community together, and to keeping the time-honored traditions alive on our stage along with new, innovative and exciting ideas to come. It promises to be a great season, and we encourage you to join us.
