Welcome to the home of the Orange Players!

As your co-presidents for 2014-2015, we would like the opportunity to introduce ourselves and share with you the passion, energy, and enthusiasm we have for the Orange Players. 
 
We have been on the Orange Players board for approximately four years. We have performed on stage and worked backstage along with our fellow Orange Players. Like many of you, we juggle family and a full time career and have been involved in various community theaters in the area. 
 
What has drawn us to the Orange Players and has inspired us to dedicate our time and energy to this organization is that the Orange Players is a true community theater, in every sense of the word. The Orange Players is one of the only theater groups that truly holds open auditions. The Orange Players welcomes all actors, with all levels of experience and abilities, to audition and get involved with every part of the production process.
 
What other theater group in this area gives the community the opportunities to participate in free or low cost workshops that range from acting to set building? What other community theater group is focused on its membership base, organizes social gatherings, offers tours at  renowned theaters such as Long Wharf or Yale Rep, provides opportunities to build one's skills in all realms of theater, and is built upon a spirit of long lasting friendship and camaraderie?
 
All this is what sets the Orange Players apart from others. This is why the Orange Players is Connecticut's oldest continually active community theater and why it is celebrating 40 years of friendship and providing quality theater experiences for the entire community.
 
Please celebrate 40 wonderful years of Orange Players at our 40th Anniversary Gala Celebration on November 1st at the American Legion Hall!  It will be a night to remember, with an elegant catered dinner, an ensemble musical revue showcasing Orange Players shows throughout the years, door prizes and raffles!
 
Also, mark your calendar for a fantastic vocal workshop conducted by Gary Harger, on November 13th,  7pm at the High Plains Community Center!

We look forward to merging the time honored traditions with new, exciting ideas which will continue to focus on the heart of Orange Players: YOU, OUR MEMBERS.

Please contact us with any suggestions, questions, and for ways to get involved.
 
We hope to see you soon!
 
Sincerely,
TJ Chila
