First Parish Players
The First Parish Players were founded in the summer of 2016 by Bridgewater resident and BSU graduate Tony Winters as a place for less-experienced actors to feel welcome and to be allowed to live out their on-stage dreams. To this day, it feeds off the same principle from which it began: that this art comes from the heart, not just from the work.
Since their inception, the First Parish Players have produced a wide array of shows, covering forgotten classics, period pieces, original plays, and timely, relevant art which coincides with the events of the world.
Stemming from First Parish Unitarian Universalist Church of Bridgewater, the Players hold the same values; that all people have inherent dignity, and should be treated with respect. That love is love, that we are all connected, and that democracy must be upheld. On that last note, each year the Players vote on which productions will be put on the following year, so their members can have a say in what they do.
Each production has its own unique flair, its own sense of intimacy and audience interaction. The Players strive to leave audiences with a new vision, not only of theater, but of the world around them.
We hope you will join us for our next production.
