In 1971, a small group of friends wanted to see about expanding opportunities for adults in the community to take part in theater. They called together a public meeting in hopes of ten to fifteen people joining this group. They were blown away by the number of people who came, which ended up being closer to 50 people. They knew at that moment this was something the community definitely wanted!
Members and benefactors are the backbone of this group. As a non-profit, we rely on the generosity of our members and benfactors to help support the everyday operations of our group, as well as the productions.
Membership comes with its perks as well. Check out the Membership page for more information on how you can support this group.
Opening Doors to Opening Acts
In 2016, Tree County Players embarked on an ambitious journey. They needed a place where they not only could hold auditions and rehearsals, but, ideally, would also be home for their performances. They needed a theater! They found the ideal building and began a capital campaign to help support the transformation. They are still in the midst of the renovations but have accomplished quite a bit in the past two years.
From Our President
The crisis due to the coronavirus is a very trying time for everyone. It’s a time that we’ve never seen before, and we are experiencing new circumstances with social distancing and self-isolation. Because the safety of Tree County Players (TCP) patrons and participants is of the utmost importance, the Board of Directors has voted to suspend the rest of the season. The two shows that will be affected are the stage reading of Ordinary People, which will be postponed to a later date, and the summer musical School House Rock Live, which will be cancelled. Even though it’s possible that some of these dates will be cleared as far as restrictions are concerned, the preparation involved negates the wisdom of having them.
We are thankful for our TCP patrons and supporters, and we look forward to a new season in the fall. Because we are appreciative of all you do for us, any unused show passes or benefactor commitments that were in place for this season will be honored for the 2020-2021 season.
Again, thank you for the support that everyone has given us over our many seasons. We hope you stay safe and healthy through this period of trial.

Stay up-to-date with all things TCP, from director notes to behind-the-scenes information for the show that is currently in production.
I recently had the experience of directing my first production for Tree County Players. It was an experience I thoroughly enjoyed! Over the River and Through the Woods was a heart-warming comedy that I fell in love with the first time I saw it. read more…
Picking the Play
It can be a challenge to select a play from the thousands published. A few filters helped narrow this search. We wanted a two-hander (two-person) play to make it easier to plan rehearsals, given day job demands. The characters needed to be age appropriate and we wanted those characters to be interesting and substantial. read more…
