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.

 20th Century Blues

20th Century Blues

Written by Susan Miller
Directed by Nancy Holley

A lobby show held over from last season. Four women jailed after a 1970’s protest, meet annually for over 40 years. They catch-up, laugh, cry, and have their pictures taken. Danny, the ringleader, has the opportunity for a photographic retrospective. She imagines an evocative showing of the aging process in America using her protest group. Sil, Gabby, and Mac are not amused. 20th CENTURY BLUES is sharply funny in its poignant confrontation among friends.
