Although the mission has evolved over time, the fundamental aim has always been, and remains, to provide provocative, high quality theatre productions that both entertain and educate. Between the inaugural season and 1991, the Role Players occupied storefront space in Danville and produced five full-length productions a year. In 1991 the Role Players entered into a co-sponsorship arrangement with the Town of Danville and moved to the historic Village Theatre on Front Street.
The 2011 – 2012 season was one of our most successful, beginning with our collaborative effect with The Eugene O’Neill Foundation and Mourning Becomes Electra. Tom Stoppard’s Tony Award-winning play Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are dead followed, and the enormously popular film noir classic Laura brought in a new audience of young and old. Our last play of the season and our first musical The Mikado brought the house to it’s feet with standing ovations. Before and during each of the four productions, we had discussions at the Danville Library, Read Booksellers at Blackhawk Plaza, and concerts at Father Natures.
