About Community Players, Inc.
Community Players, Inc. is a non-profit, volunteer-run, donor-sustained organization. It has been our pleasure to provide entertainment to Sulphur Springs and the surrounding areas for 40+ years! In addition to our primary mission of furthering the Arts, we strive to provide opportunities to aspiring actors and actresses, as well as persons interested in the “behind the scenes” workings of theatre. There is no cost to be in our productions (except nominal fees for workshops) and newcomers are encouraged to try out!
We also bring opportunity and fun to the children of Sulphur Springs and the surrounding area by offering a Children’s Workshop during the summer season. This has been a very successful endeavor that allows our children the chance to see what happens throughout the production of a play from start to finish, as well as give them the opportunity to perform or control the backstage elements of a performance.
Should you be interested in learning more about our programs and opportunities, please drop us a line and we will make every effort to satisfy any questions and/or comments you may have.
LOVE LETTERS - a Pulitzer Prize for Drama Finalist - is a unique and imaginative theatre piece which, in the words of the author, “needs no theatre, no lengthy rehearsal, no special set, no memorization of lines, and no commitment from its two actors beyond the night of performance.” The piece is comprised of letters exchanged over a lifetime between two people who grew up together, went their separate ways, but continued to share confidences. As the actors read the letters aloud, what is created is an evocative, touching, frequently funny but always telling pair of character studies in which what is implied is as revealing and meaningful as what is actually written down.
Mary & Greg Duncan perform Friday @ 7pm and Saturday @ 2pm.
Susan & James Hall perform Saturday @ 7pm and Sunday @ 2pm.

Sponsor/Donor Opportunities for 2023
Construction to our facilities is still ongoing. While we have re-opened for events, we will continue to make improvements to the inside of our facilities as funds are available. We still have finishing touches to complete in our lobby, and our next big project is to replace our old, existing HVAC units and add an additional unit for the lobby. We are grateful to our supporters who have helped in so many ways to ensure that we are able to continue our mission in Sulphur Springs. Please enjoy some photos of the construction process below.
