Community Programs

Northumberland Players hosts community programs bringing interactive theatre experiences to members of our Northumberland community. From theatre skills workshops to Summer Theatre Camp and March Break Camp for children and youth, we offer opportunities for everyone develop their skills and pursue their passion for the theatre!

Northumberland Players recognizes the contribution that youth make to and the benefits that they gain from theatre experiences by offering annual scholarships to students in Northumberland County.


Since we began our regular series of workshops for members in 2008-09, Northumberland Players has hosted 9 workshops and attracted 110 participants. Worksops are offered to meet the needs of our members and volunteers. Our smallest workshop had only 4 taking part; our largest had 20. The purpose of all workshops is to increase our own expertise and improve the productions we offer our audiences.

Members and volunteers will be contacted when workshops are offered, but others are welcome to participate as well. If you would be interested in volunteering to lead a workshop session in an area you know well we would like to hear from you.

Theatre Camps

Our Summer Theatre Camp is divided into several age groups with age appropriate dramatic activities for each group. Camp sessions take place in the Firehall Theatre located at 213 Second Street, Cobourg, directly behind Victoria Hall.

Sessions run throughout July and August. To find out more about our sessions for all ages, see Summer Theatre Camp.

March Break Camps provide a one-week session for children with a specific focus each year. In 2015, Paula Worley led children through making their own puppets and presenting a puppet show. For information about March Break Camp for 2016, watch this website.

For information about either Camp and to register a child, please phone 905-372-0577 / 1-888-811-0003


Northumberland Players awards scholarships each year to students heading to post-secondary education. These awards are funded entirely by the 50/50 draw held every year at the dinner theatre at the Best Western Cobourg Inn & Convention Centre.
