Q: How can I audition for a part in one of your plays?


A:  A few months prior to each new season, we will post information on that season's audition schedule, along with a brief description of each of the cast, on our "Auditions" page. Other helpful information will be there as well.

Q: Who, or what, are the "Off Stage Ladies"?


A:  Off Stage Ladies was founded in 1973 to give support and aid to the Island Players Theatre. The person who showed you to your seat, worked on the costumes, in the makeup room, painted the set, possibly ran the light board or sound system, hunted for props in the play, or maybe was one of the actresses, was probably one of the Off Stage Ladies. They also serve the delicious Long Sunday meal for the cast and crew. Joining Off Stage Ladies is a great way to meet people as the group is very social. Meetings are the second Wednesday of each month, October through May, at area restaurants. Each meeting has a special program. Dues are $20 (US) per year.
