Steel Magnolias (POSTPONED)

written by Robert Harling / directed by Danny Lee

To Our Patrons,

It is with a heavy heart and after much discussion that the Waynesboro Players Board of Directors has made the decision to postpone our production of Steel Magnolias scheduled for May 1-10. Our cast and crew were willing to continue working on this show as long possible to bring it to the stage for you (because they ARE made of steel), however we feel that abiding to the recommendations from the CDC and government officials, it is in the best interest of our cast, crew, and patrons that we stop production at this time and pick it up in the future.

As of today, we have not selected dates as we must work with our venue partner to find suitable possibilities, in addition to monitoring the ongoing progress of the COVID-19 virus. If you are a season ticket holder or have purchased tickets for the show, there are a few options.Keeping in mind that like all non-profit organizations our costs continue even though we will not have show income, we want to work with you to honor your current tickets. This can take two forms, we can honor your ticket for the show once it is rescheduled, or you could consider turning your ticket into a tax-deductible donation.

Lillian Morse Scholarship Information

Application Deadline: April 1, 2020
Lillian Morse was a founding member of The Players who had particular interest in educating young people in the theatre arts and providing an opportunity for youth and all community members to give back to Waynesboro through the performing arts.

Celebrating 57 Years of Community Theater

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.
