For over fifty years Licking County Players has been putting on plays to delight a wide variety of audiences.  All of our productions are produced, directed, supported and performed by volunteer members of our community who truly care about creating great experiences for an audience.  We put on a variety of shows from slapstick farce to expertly crafted mysteries to musicals.  We even throw in some classics now and then.     


If you want to partcipate in our plays please come to auditions and give it a try!  You don't need any kind of experience to start in theatre, just a willingness to learn from your director and fellow actors.  If you love the theatre and want to help out, but you couldn't act your way out of a paper bag, ask the director if they need help with backstage work.  You can be sure they'll take the extra help.


Or, if you want to just come and enjoy a play, we do performances all year long in downtown Newark.  Click the "Season" button above to see our current season, and click on any of the posters on that page to learn more about the show.  If you want to see a show just click "Buy Tickets" on that page or in the footer below every page to be directed to our online box office, run by Vendini.  Or, if you prefer buying your tickets at the door, the box office opens one hour before the play begins every night.  We'd love to have you stop by to say hello.  


So no matter what you enjoy about the theatre, you should come enjoy it with us at Licking County Players in downtown Newark!
