The Bay City Players is a family of people all drawn to the challenge and excitement of bringing live theater to the Bay City community. Our talented volunteer actors, directors, and behind the scene people come together to bring to the stage five productions each season including everything from a musical to a farce.
In addition to the regular season shows there are 2 unique opportunities for area youth in the Youtheatre and Stages of Discovery programs. Details of these programs can be found by clicking on the links on the left side of this page.
Not to be left out, our Recyclables Reader Theatre program gives an opportunity for our talented senior actors to bring the theater to the community. When there not on stage in one of our regular productions of course.
Let’s not forget the many volunteers who stuff envelopes, take tickets, check coats, greet and take care of the many other activities that go on during each performance.
