Who We Are

Mission Statement:

The purpose of this Corporation is to produce quality classic and contemporary live theatre that entertains and inspires while providing support for our diverse community.

About The Village Players:

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 performed 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 into a friendly, open community theatre presenting a wide variety of productions.

Over the years, The Village Players Theatre has turned the humble chapel into one of Toledo’s most-beloved performance spaces.

About Our Shows:

We accept submissions for shows year-round, and they are given to our Season-Selection Committee who reads every show submitted. At our winter board meeting, the Season-Selection Committee presents its selections to the board of directors. The board reads then reads the selected shows and then comes to a final vote on the next season.

Board of Directors

The Village Players would like to recognize the board of directors and all of the people who work diligently behind the scenes to make all of this possible.
