- About Us
The mission of the Wellesley Players is to provide a path to creative community theater involvement, and to deliver outstanding theatrical experiences that inspire and foster an appreciation for the arts.
The Wellesley Players, one of America’s oldest community theatre organizations, was founded in 1925 as “The Wellesley Village Players”. The group’s first meeting and annual productions were held in the community hall of The Village Church, their home and sponsor. Since 1925, the Wellesley Players have put on more than 150 productions for the cultural community of MetroWest Boston.
Today, the Wellesley Players are in residence at the Arsenal Center for the Arts in Watertown. The Players perform in the Black Box Theatre and the Mosesian Theatre. The Players present several productions each theatrical season, catering to a variety of local theatrical audiences. The Players also operate the Wellesley Players Family Theatre, which serves local families by providing the same high-quality talent and passion through shows designed to educate and entertain younger audiences.
The Wellesley Players membership includes audiencegoers, enthusiasts, performers, and technical and logistical personnel from throughout eastern Massachusetts and southern New Hampshire.
