Welcome to the Dorset Players

Dorset Players to host Directors meeting

The Dorset Players will be hosting a director’s meeting on Tuesday, January 23 at 6:30 pm at the Playhouse for directors who would like to direct a full-length play for the 2018-19 Season. The season includes four major productions (Fall/October, Christmas/December, Winter/March, and the Spring Musical/May). If you have a play in mind, be prepared to discuss casting and production requirements as well as potential royalties. Click here for Form.

We are also looking for directors for the 2018 One Act Festival to be held April 6-8. If you would like to direct, but don’t have the time or experience for a full-length play, this is a great opportunity to get started. Looking for a play? The Players have a library of over 400 plays for your perusal. Call Kathy at the business office (802-867-5570) 10am-2pm Monday through Friday or email info@dorsetplayers.org for more information and for access to the play library.

Mothers and Sons

by Terrance McNally

At turns funny and powerful, MOTHERS AND SONS portrays a woman who pays an unexpected visit to the New York apartment of her late son’s partner, who is now married to another man and has a young son. Challenged to face how society has changed around her, generations collide as she revisits the past and begins to see the life her son might have led.

Director Sherry Kratzer has selected her cast and rehearsal will begin shortly.  This production will be presented on Friday and Saturday, March 2 & 3, March 9 & 10 at 7:30 pm and Sunday, March 4 & 11 at 2 pm.  Tickets are available on line at dorsetplayers.org
