Welcome to the Community Players Theatre

Community Players is a charitable, nonprofit theatrical organization dedicated to the idea that live theater enhances the quality of life for our audiences, our participants, and the community.

Our mission is to produce classic and contemporary dramas, comedies, and musicals; to provide a place where the citizens of the Bloomington-Normal area, of all ages and incomes, can experience high quality live theater; to offer a home where a diverse group of theatrical artists can learn and develop their craft.
