The Cross Creek Players is an organization that has commanded the Cross Creek stage for most of Cross Creek’s existence. Started in 1987, the first show was a “talent review” which showcased the multiple talents of Cross Creek neighbors and friends. Through the years, the shows developed themes in which to bring music, dance, and comedy, through skits written by Cross Creek members.
For a good many years, membership was between 40- 60. There was a need for those to be on stage and also for backstage managers, make-up, costume designers, advertisers, and playbill developers to name a few. Shows normally ran four nights with total attendance greater than 400. Dinner was served.
In the Clubhouse, The Players contributed to the purchase of the sound system, lighting, and stage curtain and design through the years.
Production of the Players 32nd show entitled “The Best of Everything or something like that” was cancelled five days before the show in 2020 because of COVID. Three shows were planned including a matinee.
Cross Creek Players membership is lower these days, so it is much more difficult to put on a full show. So the Players look to return to their roots as a “Cross Creek Talent” show. What we need is the talent. Our community is in a transitional time with many new neighbors and friends. There may be a number of individuals who may wish participate in such a show. As envisioned, the show would be for one night following dinner.
