The Visalia Community Players is a California non-profit corporation dedicated to the development of community theatre in the greater Visalia area. The organization is entirely supported by ticket sales and tax-deductible contributions. Each year, The Players members put in thousands of hours of their own time to bring community theatre to Visalia. Every job needed to run the theatre — from acting to ticket sales, from building sets to maintaining the building — is performed by volunteers dedicated to community theatre. Membership in the organization is open to anyone who shares an interest in community theatre.

The basis of community theatre is that it is open to all. It is a place for community members to come together and perform for the entertainment of the community. To this end, we have actively encouraged new members in the organization, and have struggled to keep ticket prices low enough to be affordable for anyone, while meeting the substantial costs of operating the theatre. Tickets for students with proper identification are only half-price.

Driving Miss Daisy

Driving Miss Daisy   
WRITTEN BY: Alfred Uhry
DIRECTED BY: Sharon DeCoux

Based on author Alfred Uhry's life with his grandmother, the play depicts Daisy's relationship with her African-American chauffeur, Hoke. Set between 1948 and 1973, we see Daisy, a Jewish woman of Atlanta, adjusting to the “indignities” of her perceived loss of independence when son Boolie hires Hoke to drive her. This warm and often funny play is the first of a trilogy by Uhry, originally starring Morgan Freeman and Dana Ivey and later adapted to film, with Freeman as Hoke and Jessica Tandy as Daisy.
