The Penfield Players, a not for profit community theatre, is one of oldest continuing theater groups in this area, having been established in 1965. The group presents four productions a year — two full stage production shows, one readers' theatre, and one show as part of the Rochester Fringe Festival. Penfield Players are sponsored by the Penfield Recreation Department.


Our 2020 season opened with a staged reading of Cinderella Waltz by Don Nigro on Feb. 22 and 23 in the Community Room at the Penfield Recreation Center, 1985 Baird Rd., Penfield, NY. But then, due to the pandemic, the rest of our season had to be postponed. 


For 2021, we presented an online Zoom reading of the The Circle: A Book Club Sisterhood by local author Laura Thomas on Saturday, April 10 at 7 p.m. The reading was preceded by a live talk with the author on Friday, April 9 at 7 p.m.


We expect to return to live performances with The Haunting of Hill House by F. Andrew Leslie, from the novel by Shirley Jackson, our second main stage production in the Penfield Recreation Center, Oct. 29-30, Nov. 5-7, and Nov. 12-13. Auditions are tentatively scheduled for the evenings of August 23 and 24 at the Penfield Community Center, 1985 Baird Rd., Penfield, NY. 


The Players welcome anyone who has an interest in theatre, whether it is in acting, directing, producing, stage managing, props, costuming, or any other aspect of a production. Join Penfield Players for a rewarding theatre experience by contacting us at
