About Us

Imagine a theatre troupe specifically designed for your community.   What would that look like? 

     How about a troupe of local artists and students who are all paid in creative team, performance, and crew position?

     How about a company whose proceeds benefit local orgs, educational projects, foundations, and schools?

     How about experiences that build memories you will cherish forever?

Those are the building blocks of The Fireside Players.




     Check back in a few weeks and all of this space will be filled up with exciting show information!
