AUDITIONS: Join us on our stage this season!
This season offers great opportunities for actors of all ages and levels of experience to step onto our stage. All you have to do is audition!
On April 23 & 25 at Freeport Performing Arts Center we will hold open auditions for our summer production, a collection of quirky one-act plays with roles for men and women in their 20s-50s, more or less. These are short plays and therefore are ideally suited to actors who are looking for a somewhat lighter time commitment to rehearse and prepare for performances. Audition details...
On July 23 & 24 at Freeport Performing Arts Center we will hold open auditions for our fall production, Peter Colley's comic thriller I'll Be Back Before Midnight. The cast consists of two men and two women. For this show we will likely consider a range in ages from 20s to 40s, more or less. This play asks more of the actors and is well-suited for those with more time to devote to rehearsals and at least a little experience under their belt.
Auditions for the WFCP Home Time Radio Hour have not been set yet, but expect they will be held in September. Radio is a big, fun show with a big, fun cast. There are roles for singers and actors aged 10 and older and all levels of experience. Note that this year we are breaking with tradition and performing Radio from November 30 - December 2, the weekend before Freeport's Sparkle Weekend. Audition details will be posted here in a couple of weeks.

We are really proud of the work our volunteers do and we are grateful for the things our friends donate or loan to us to put on stage. But even with all that time and good will on the balance sheet, we rely on donations from people like you, people who have enjoyed what we do and know how important Freeport Players are to the community. As we strive to meet increasing costs and improve the experience we offer participants and audiences, we look to you for support.

Thank you for another great season!

Our 2017 season was so much fun, don't you agree? In February our new improv troupe the F.P.I. (Freeport Players Improv) made its debut as part of FebFest. Of course no one will forget our summer production, Seussical. It was uplifting, charming, whimsical, and so so good! We sure hope you caught the hilarious performances by Zac and the entire cast of The Servant of Two Masters in September. Our partnership with Freeport Historical Society continued with another Ghosts of Freeport's Past, telling the stories of Freeport's early settlers in tours of the Old Parish Burying Ground in October. Last, but certainly not least, the cast of The WFCP Home Time Radio Hour thrilled audiences with songs of the 1960s and still more comedy from our writers. The Sound Effects Ladies even got some well-deserved love from the media with a feature during WGME's coverage of Sparkle Weekend (view the clip). Together, well over 100 volunteers of all ages entertained nearly 2000 people this season!

Did you witness these moments from 2017?

Our Mission

Freeport Players provides opportunities for local amateur actors to perform in roles often reserved for professionals. We involve members of our community in all aspects of the process, drawing on their talent and enthusiasm to create the "magic" of theater. Our volunteers are compensated for their time with fun, creative challenges, the chance to learn about the craft of theater, and, often, bonds of friendship that endure long after the curtain closes.

Many thanks to our 2017 Sponsors and Advertisers
