Arts and Theater

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.
