The Barcroft Players
Neighborhood Theater Company
Barcroft Community House

Our neighborhood theater group was started in 2001 by a group of Barcroft residents who love live theater. At that time the stage at the Barcroft Community House had been recently vacated by a church group who had been using the stage for their services. The group of Barcrofters couldn't help but think that the empty stage was crying out for a theater group to fill the void. Thus the Barcroft Players were born.

Since that modest beginning, the Players have graduated to a modest middle, with no end in sight. The bad news: we have been unable to convince all 3,611 residents of Barcroft to become actors or theater technicians, which leads us to the good news - we have broadened our focus to include other area participants who have contributed their talents to our efforts. We continue to challenge ourselves to put on good theater on a small stage and a shoestring budget. And not least of all, we've managed to have a lot of fun in the process.
