The Towne & Country Players Community Theater Group has been fortunate in having among its membership many people with the abilities, talents and dedication needed in all aspects of successful theatrical productions. Many members are from the Versailles area, but the success of our group has attracted many talented people from other nearby communities. We welcome anyone interested in helping T&CP promote the theater arts in our area.
Community theater provides an opportunity for local people to participate in artistic expression, to perform, sing, direct, work on various committees, and feel good about their contributions. While putting together a production, we frequently make lasting friendships.
Towne & Country Players was first formed in 1972 under the name of the Versailles Community Chorus. Over 50 musicals, comedies, and dramas, along with special community and dinner theater presentations. Also numerous library lawn shows, Easter, and Christmas cantatas have been presented.
The Versailles Community Chorus began in the winter of 1972. An invitation by Dale and Alnora Snedeker was extended to anyone in the community who wanted to sing to join the group at the high school. Sixty people of all ages attended that first meeting. Over the years, hundreds of talented men and women have participated in our continually active community theatre group.
Jerry and Sue Kerns directed many of the musicals, including "The Fantasticks" in 1989, which earned T&CP the honor of representing the United States at the International Theatre Festival in Edinburgh, Scotland. The cast, families and guests journeyed to Edinburgh, by way of London, to present the performances. They enjoyed two weeks of touring England and Scotland and the opportunity of seeing many varied theatrical presentations by professional and amateur groups from all over the world.
This active community theatre group, Towne & Country Players, has been fortunate in having among their membership many people with abilities and talents needed in all aspects for its success, including producers, directors, and the singers, actors, dancers on stage. Most members are from the Versailles area, but we welcome anyone interested in helping T&CP promote the theatre arts in Darke County.
