Since 1962, Waynesboro Players has brought our community together through all-volunteer productions. Together we have laughed, cried, and sung along with diverse characters both familiar and foreign. As we strive to adapt to the ever-changing times and cultural landscape, we too have found the need to adapt and change. The continuing renovations to the high school has created an opportunity for us to adapt to a new environment. This year you will find us in a more intimate venue at Waynesboro Golf and Country Club. We had a very positive experience there last year with actors, WGCC staff, and you all sharing your praises for the experience. This intimate venue means the shows will be up close, personal, and dynamically engaging.
With our new season comes a new name as well. While we will remain Waynesboro Players officially, for play productions we will simply be known as The Players. With our augmented new name, we are excited to bring you another community-driven season of theater.
This year we looked for shows that hearkened to the nostalgia of the past, but also wanted to bring current themes and plays to the stage. As always, we are 100% reliant on ticket sales and generous donations of community members to bring our shows to life. We thank you and our many volunteers for making this all possible.
