Perry Players Community Theatre is located in the beautiful historic downtown section of Perry, Georgia.
We offer high-quality entertainment and cultural activities to the citizens of middle Georgia. Though we are an amateur community theatre, we strive for excellence and professionalism in all that we choose to do. We promote and nourish community spirit, providing mutual support and encouragement to individuals and other cultural arts groups.
Our community theatre could not exist without your past, present, and continued support. So we hope that your enjoyment of our productions has been and will continue to be repayment of your faith and support of Perry Players.
We are a totally volunteer organization so if you feel the urge to "get out and do something", consider auditioning or volunteering for one of our productions.
Our theatre seats 179 people, and every seat in the house is great!
Our performances have become extremely popular, so we recommend making reservations. For each show, we begin taking reservations the Monday before opening night.
Season members, patrons, and grand patrons may call as early as the Thursday before that!

Your Season Ticket will allow you to use it up to four times and in any combination during the 2015-2016 year, when before you could only use it for each specific show. In case we have a show you don't care to see, or are unable to attend, let someone come with you the next time and use the extra ticket. Don't miss out on the savings! That is four tickets for you to use in any combination.

Grand Patron Ticket holders entitle you to Playbill recognition and an added bonus of Early Seating: to select your seats before the general audience enters.

This year marks the 21st anniversary of the Youth Theatre Workshop. I'm thrilled we've been able to offer this program to the community for twenty-one years! Extraordinary memories and remarkable friendships have highlighted this exceptional journey! In recent years, it has been especially thrilling to have “workshop grandchildren” – the children of parents who used to be workshop students. We work, we learn, and we laugh! This summer, I hope your children can be a part of the experience!
In May and June of 2015, there will be two sessions of the Youth Theatre Workshop. Participants will receive two weeks of training in stage movement, audition technique, acting, characterization, makeup, voice, and gaining confidence when speaking to an audience. The workshop will culminate in three performances on the final weekend.
The 2015 workshop dates are:
Session One: May 25-June 5 with performances on June 5 at 7 p.m. and June 6 at 3 p.m. and 7 p.m.
Session Two: June 8-19 with performances on June 19 at 7 p.m. and June 20 at 3 p.m. and 7 p.m.
The first week: The workshop hours are 9 a.m. until noon for ages 7 through 12. Teenagers may stay until 1:30 p.m. on Monday through Thursday. On Friday, everyone leaves at noon.
The second week: The hours are Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. until 1:55 p.m. for everyone.
The cost of each session of the workshop is $140 per youth which includes a complimentary t-shirt. The workshop is open to youth ages 7 through High School.
If you are interested, please email me at email@example.com for additional information.
This is the highlight of the year form my assistants and me! My goal is that it will be a hightlight for your children as well!

Perry Players is extremely excited to gear up for our highly-anticipated summer musical, The Addams Family. Based on one of America’s favorite television families, this popular Broadway musical recently closed in New York and is coming to downtown Perry this July! With all of your favorite characters from the classic television show, this is one of the hottest musical comedies today and is guaranteed to leave you in stitches and begging for more! And we want you to be involved!
Auditions are on May 3, 4 and 5 at 7pm at Perry Players Community Theatre (909 Main Street, Perry). Come on out with about 30 seconds of a ‘musical theatre-related’ piece memorized to show off your range (songs from the show are acceptable). Please arrive about 30 minutes early if you plan to use our accompanist, or you may audition A Capella. Be prepared to also cold-read from the script and learn a quick movement routine from the show.
If you’d like to work behind the scenes then just let us know where you’d like to be, and we will plug you in! Costumes, set design and construction, lights, sound, makeup, backstage, you name it! We will find a place for you!
Please note that this production was not part of our regular season and is not included in the 2014 - 2015 Season, Patron and Grand Patron Tickets.
In this transcendently powerful new adaptation by Wendy Kesselman, Anne Frank emerges from history a living, lyrical, intensely gifted young girl, who confronts her rapidly changing life and the increasing horror of her time with astonishing honesty, wit, and determination. An impassioned drama about the lives of eight people hiding from the Nazis in a concealed storage attic, THE DIARY OF ANNE FRANK captures the claustrophobic realities of their daily existence—their fear, their hope, their laughter, their grief. Each day of these two dark years, Anne's voice shines through: "When I write I shake off all my cares. But I want to achieve more than that. I want to be useful and bring enjoyment to all people, even those I've never met. I want to go on living even after my death!" This is a new adaptation for a new generation.
Fresh out of the seminary, Reverend Higgins sets his eyes on Shady Creek Baptist Church. Great hymns and laughter abound as this new preacher finds he has his hands full with his "old" congregation.
This gospel musical comedy was written by Jim Hesselman and Bob Payne. SING HALLELUJAH! takes place in Johnsontown, North Carolina and features such songs as "Do Lord", "Onward Christian Soldiers", "Down By The Riverside", "Swing Down Chariot", "Amazing Grace" and many more.
Mix a Hitchcock masterpiece with a juicy spy novel, add a dash of Monty Python and you have The 39 Steps, a fast-paced whodunit for anyone who loves the magic of theatre! This 2-time Tony® and Drama Desk Award-winning treat is packed with nonstop laughs, over 150 zany characters (played by a ridiculously talented cast of 4), an on-stage plane crash, handcuffs, missing fingers and some good old-fashioned romance!
In The 39 Steps, a man with a boring life meets a woman with a thick accent who says she's a spy. When he takes her home, she is murdered. Soon, a mysterious organization called "The 39 Steps" is hot on the man's trail in a nationwide manhunt that climaxes in a death-defying finale! A riotous blend of virtuoso performances and wildly inventive stagecraft, The 39 Steps amounts to an unforgettable evening of pure pleasure!
Elwood P. Dowd insists on including his friend Harvey in all of his sister Veta’s social gatherings. Trouble is, Harvey is an imaginary six-and-a-half-foot-tall rabbit. To avoid future embarrassment for her family—and especially for her daughter, Myrtle Mae—Veta decides to have Elwood committed to a sanitarium. At the sanitarium, a frantic Veta explains to the staff that her years of living with Elwood’s hallucination have caused her to see Harvey also, and so the doctors mistakenly commit her instead of her mild-mannered brother. The truth comes out, however; Veta is freed, and the search is on for Elwood, who eventually arrives at the sanitarium of his own volition, looking for Harvey. But it seems that Elwood and his invisible companion have had a strange influence on more than one of the doctors. Only at the end does Veta realize that maybe Harvey isn’t so bad after all.
