The Augusta Players is an award-winning non-profit community theatre organization dedicated to presenting the highest quality theatrical productions. Serving the City of Augusta and its surrounding counties, our mission is to foster creative expression by providing a medium for local actors, musicians, dancers, directors, designers, and technicians to explore their talents and sharpen their skills. Central to our focus is the purpose of creating an artistic environment that attracts and excites diverse members of the community to draw new audience members, participants and volunteers, through the art of quality theatre. Through MainStage productions, community outreach, and special programming for children and youth, we exist to enrich the cultural lives of our populace and teach theatre performance skills to any and all volunteers. We are committed to providing a positive outlet for cultural and artistic expression to all those who wish to entertain or be entertained.
The Augusta Players has been Augusta’s premier theatre company since 1945. As the oldest and certainly among the finest performing arts groups in Augusta, the Augusta Players has become a cultural fixture in the community. Over the years, the organization has experienced remarkable growth in the size and quality of its productions. The MainStage productions have become more lavish and spectacular, providing our community with the opportunity to enjoy Broadway caliber productions on Augusta’s Imperial Theatre stage. Our continued growth has been due in no small part to members of our community who believe that quality performing arts are an essential part of our community.
The Augusta Players’ programming provides an environment where all citizens can create, experience and appreciate theatre as well as create the cultural infrastructure that allows the community of Augusta to flourish.
