Our very own Community Theatre company, the St. Barts Players, is back on the boards and looking for all those interested in playing onstage and off! Members of all ages and skill levels can enjoy performance opportunities and social activities, such as theatre and movie outings, karaoke nights, happy hours, cabarets, staged readings and other opportunities throughout the year. You also can get involved on stage or behind the scenes in our spring and fall Mainstage productions.
To close out its return 95th season, the St. Bart’s Players is thrilled to present the hilarious whodunit musical, The Mystery of Edwin Drood. This unique musical, with book, music and lyrics by Rupert Holmes, premiered on Broadway in 1985 and went on to win six Tony Awards, including Best Musical, Best Book of a Musical and Best Score.
There will be ten performances from October 19 – 30, at The Hudson Guild Theater, 440 West 26th St., NYC. For tickets (at the door): Premium/Regular: $55/$35; or (paid in advance): Premium/Regular: $50/$30 and $25 for seniors/students (click HERE for tickets): $25 for all tickets on both Thursday performances. The St. Bart’s Players is committed to keeping everyone involved with a live SBP production safe. Masks are required in all common areas while in the theater for the safety of all. We strongly encourage full vaccination against COVID-19 (including the new booster), but no longer require proof of vaccination.

The St. Bart’s Players (SBP), founded in 1927, is a nonprofit, volunteer-driven organization
dedicated to presenting high-caliber, quality theatre at affordable prices. It is the longest-
running community theatre in New York City.
Most of its members, including the governing Advisory Board, hold full-time day jobs in a wide variety of careers and pursue their love of theater in their off-hours. The group is a melting pot of creativity, talent and management skills that is infused with a hard-work ethic, which is why the Players has enjoyed the long tradition of “consistently achieving professional caliber [theatre]” (New York Times).
What’s striking about SBP’s shows is their quality, not only onstage but also behind the scenes.
The artistic staff, (directors, music directors, stage managers and lighting, set, costume and sound designers) are paid professionals. All other positions are filled by members of the Players, who produce, assistant-stage manage, run light boards and more. There is something for everyone.
The SBP runs year-round, with a brief hiatus in the summer. There are two or more off-site
"Main Stage" productions each year—one in the fall and one in the spring—performed at
professional venues in NYC. In addition, there are special events and fundraisers throughout the season: cabarets, interactive murder mysteries, staged play readings and more that are performed in the Community House of St. Bartholomew’s Church.
