What We're About:
Players of the Stage exists to celebrate God's glory by developing the unique character, voice and talents of actors through staging entertaining and thought-provoking productions and to support, through its proceeds, humanitarian organizations in the Lehigh Valley.
It is our desire that each actor within our community grow as an individual and, through acting, learn important life skills such as public speaking, teamwork, confidence and community service. We carefully guide our actors to recognize the skills and talents they possess as a gift from God to be used for His glory to give back to their communities. Players of the Stage will impact the Lehigh Valley by supporting local charitable organizations and providing affordable art that transforms our community. We desire to acquire a downtown space where we can reach out with a broad range of arts-based programs, thereby creating a place for people to be exposed to the arts.
What this Looks Like
Players of the Stage promotes the development of individuals through theatre, the advancement of art, and the work of social justice in the Lehigh Valley. We do this by providing two youth showcase productions that focus on the development of younger actors and one community show a year. By doing all our shows as benefit shows we not only work towards promoting social justice in the Valley but we train our actors to use their talents for the advancement of others. We hope to expand our program by obtaining our own building, hiring more staff, and starting more opportunities for the community: theatre classes, more productions, an art gallery, and a cafe where the community can gather to talk and connect.
