Tree County Players is supported by a grant from:
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
Tree County Players Members, Benefactors, and Followers,
Tree County Players is such a diverse, talented, professional organization, and the hardworking attitudes of our volunteers and supporters have carried us through this year. We bounced back from a year of virtual performances and canceled events, and we put our best foot forward with some amazing shows! We were able to remain safe and productive throughout the season to continue our mission of “enriching our community through performing arts experiences.” Here are a few of our accomplishments from this past season:
*The Gospel According to Mark performed by JR Stewart
*Grace and Glorie
*Guys and Dolls
This 52nd year of our organization will be a great one with wonderful members, generous benefactors, community supporters, and talented performers. We are entering this season with gusto and excitement, and we can’t wait to share what we have planned! We encourage everyone to get involved in some way, whether it be renewing or establishing a new membership, becoming a benefactor, or performing in or volunteering to help with a show. Our community is filled with amazing people, and we are so blessed to be a thriving part of it!

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…
