- GET INVOLVED
In 2004, a group of interested members of the community with backgrounds in theater and dance established TheatreWorks Community Players of Martinsville and Henry County. They recognized the possibilities and potential of Community Theater and what it can mean to the area including economic development, partnerships, and a showcase for local talent. The mission of TheatreWorks Community Players (TWCP) is to enrich and change lives by engaging the people of our community in high-quality theatrical productions and life-long educational opportunities. TWCP has a strong commitment to integrity, inclusiveness, diversity, fairness, excellence, accessibility, accountability, and growth. TWCP exists to celebrate and nurture creative expression, to foster human communication and understanding, and to delight and challenge our audiences through theatre arts.
All members of the community are invited to be a part of TWCP on stage or behind the scenes, we want you to be a part of the team! Come to the Black Box Theatre and define the role that is right for you.
"Community Theatre occupies a peculiarly important position in the American theater picture . . . It engages more people in theatrical activity, albeit part-time, than all the rest of the American theatre put together, including schools and colleges."
