The Village Players of Toledo, Ohio
In the early 1950s, a few community members from the Village of Ottawa Hills formed a theatre group for entertainment. Their first shows were presented with a tent as their theatre and were held in Ottawa Park. As the group continued to prosper and grow, they began to look for a new, permanent home. A small church building on Upton Avenue between Monroe Street and Central Avenue was acquired in the mid-1960s, and renovations began to turn the chapel into a true theatre space. Incorporated in 1956, The Village Players Theatre has evolved over the years into a friendly, open, community theatre presenting a wide variety of productions.
Over the years, new seats, state-of-the-art lighting and sound systems, and numerous “workdays” have turned the humble chapel into one of Toledo’s most beloved performance spaces.
