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 amd Composition
  • Dance and Choreography
  • Stage Crew
  • Set Design and Construction
  • Lighting and 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 Clare DeGennaro at or another member of the E-Board.
