Iona Players

Iona PlayersThe Iona College Players is a student-directed theatre organization of Iona College. Much more than just a drama club, the Players provides vast opportunities for students to develop and cultivate a passion for the performing arts at Iona. Specifically committed to the arts of performance and entertainment, the Players serves as the only entirely student-run theatre group on Iona's campus. With this unique distinction, the organization is able to offer students opportunities to directly participate in various aspects of theatre production such as:
  • Acting
  • Directing
  • Writing
  • Musical Performance & Composition
  • Dance & Choreography
  • Stage Crew
  • Set Design & Construction
  • Lighting & Sound


Club meetings are scheduled periodically over the course of the semester to address new developments in Players events and productions, as well as general club membership and involvement. For information on upcoming meetings and events, contact President Amanda Moneta at, or another member of the E-Board.
