Calling All Local Theater, Music, and Art Lovers to
“Make Your Entrance!”
at the Sherman Playhouse!

The Sherman Players invites all area residents to “Make Your Entrance!,” and discover all the fun and exciting ways to get involved in the Playhouse’s activities, whether backstage, onstage, or in the audience.

We are currently seeking volunteers from the community to lend their skills and talents to plays, musicals, script readings, concerts, and other related events for our 2024 season in the following areas:

– Set building
– Set painting
– Props
– Costumes
– Stage management
– Assistant stage management
– Backstage crew
– Light/sound design and tech
– Fight choreography
– Dance choreography
– Box office
– Concessions
– Ushers
– Other

(If you are interested in performing in one of our plays or musicals, keep an eye out on our website and social media for audition announcements throughout the year.)
Artistic Director Jessica Durdock Moreno states: “With Spring just around the corner, there’s no better time to shake off your cabin fever and discover all the delightful ways to flex your creative muscles at our Playhouse. This is community theater at its purest: everyone is welcome to join in the fun and create something together–no experience necessary. Come and “make your entrance” with us!”

Moreno continues: “Community theaters are wonderful parts of our civic life. They are places where we all can gather, experience different kinds of entertainment, share conversation with each other, and indulge in our love for the arts.”
While this call for volunteers is open to anyone in comfortable travel distance to the Playhouse, we especially encourage high school and college students to use this as an opportunity for community service, resume building, skill building, personal development, and to explore potential careers in the arts. You will be working along side industry professionals and established artists, who are happy to provide mentorship. We also encourage seniors and retirees to get in on the action!

The Players are currently in rehearsals for our first play of the 2024 season, HABEAS CORPUS, a wildly hilarious British farce by Alan Bennett, starring a dozen local actors, and directed by Dan Friedman of the Bedford Playhouse, and which runs from April 5th through April 27th.

We are also continuing our karaoke nights, and we are rolling out a brand new, in-demand, and ongoing writers’ workshop, THE COLD LEMONADE READING SERIES, hosted by Morgana Kate Watson; featuring all local playwrights. Stay tuned for announcements on more exciting events and activities, including performer auditions, director recruitment, live music, and playwriting classes. Under President Steve Stott, the Board of the Sherman Playhouse is actively expanding all programming in all areas for the 2024 season and leading into our centennial year celebration in 2025.
