Original plays presented in a readers theatre format. Curtain Players provides the playing space, rehearsal space, and very basic stage lighting, with the selected playwrights taking creative license with directors and actors of their choosing to bring their new stories to life.

The Simply Staged weekend is offered to patrons without charge (though donations are accepted). Also, no reservations are taken for this engagement, an open seating event.

Skating Party Ready to Roll January 26

Curtain Players is ready to roll, and the community theatre company is issuing an invitation to everyone to participate in a special family fundraising event.

Curtain Players has announced details about its fundraising roller skating party Thursday evening January 26 at United Skates of America. The rink is located at 3362 Refugee Road in Columbus (43232).

In addition to skating, there will be karaoke featuring a family Top 40 mix and popular songs from the musical theatre.
