Our Mission

The Fenton Village Players is a performing arts organization with the intent of providing community opportunities and facilities to study, appreciate, and participate in the arts, including professional-quality theatre.

Our History

The Fenton Village Players began has its roots in a community theatre group that began in Fenton, Michigan in 1939. A group of aspiring actors organized what they called The Mimes Club. They performed programs and plays for over a decade. The group dissolved in 1950, but was revived in its present form in 1972 as The Fenton Village Players.

A Community

The Fenton Village Players is all about community — our organization’s community, the performing arts community and our community at large. We value the people around us and believe our theatre has a responsibility to give back to our communities.

We work closely with other local theatres — Flint Community Players, Clarkston Village Players, Clio Cast & Crew, and others — by sharing of talent, resources, and, of course, coming out and supporting their productions. The Fenton Village Players’ is in close partnership with Kidz Theatre Kompany — with which we share the Fenton Village Playhouse — to instill a love of theatre in our youth.

The Players’ are regularly involved in events in and around Fenton, including parades, the cemetery walk, murder mystery theatre, performing arts workshops and more.

Professional Quality

A longstanding goal of the Players’ has been to eliminate the stigma that “community theatre” is synonymous with “sub-par”. We value the time and money of our patrons and members.  We accomplish this goal by educating directors, actors, and backstage crews in the art and science of theatre production. To be a part of our theatre, no prior experience is required. But be prepared! We’ll make sure you get the experience you need! We take pride in our work and our craft.
