Formerly known as “C4Act,” Center Players is committed to building community by creating opportunities for learning through acting, directing, writing and technical aspects of live theater. An annual season featuring a diverse offering of community theater productions will involve participants, and welcomes new “players” of all skill levels.

The term “community theatre” was coined by Louise Burleigh in 1917. The movement has been called “art theatre,” “little theatre,” “amateur theatre,” even “tributary theatre,” and it engages people in theatrical activity, albeit part-time, than all the rest of the American theatre put together.
