Community Programs

Northumberland Players hosts community programs bringing interactive theatre experiences to members of our Northumberland community. From theatre skills workshops to Theatre Camps andchildren’s productions for children and youth, we offer opportunities for everyone develop their skills and pursue their passion for the theatre!

Workshops are offered to meet the needs of our members and volunteers and to develop the skills and talents that are required for our productions.. Northumberland Players has hosted over 20 workshops and attracted hundreds participants over the years. From learning how to be a stage manager to learning how to make Peter Pan fly, the purpose of all workshops is to increase our own expertise and improve the productions we offer our audiences.

Members and volunteers will receive notices in the eBlast when workshops are offered, but others are welcome to participate as well.

If you would be interested in presenting a workshop session in an area you know well we would like to hear from you.
