The Catskill Community Players is a community theater group founded in 1974 with the purpose of “promoting and presenting theater in the community”. Based in upstate New York’s Delaware County, its membership is drawn from the communities of South Kortright, Hobart, Stamford, Jefferson, Delhi, Franklin, Oneonta, and surrounding areas.
The company was founded on the principle that great theatre should be accessible to all. Our character is rooted in, and defined by, our Free Admission policy. We believe that theatre is not only a literary art, but also a popular one; we draw our inspiration from the fairground and the circus, the music hall and the street. We love to clown wildly in tragedy; to expose the tragic in comedy; to ignite the absurd within the profound. We strive to bring great stories to life on our stage.
