History, Community, Tradition… Because art requires creation through participation, all art must have a community in order to create. Theater has always been an influential factor in communities. As people are exposed to the arts, creativity flourishes, academics improve, and means of self-expression are developed. Supporting your community theater is supporting all these things, and contributing to a proven catalyst for economic development, community engagement and social enrichment.
This has long been the understanding of The Antrim Players, a pride and joy of Rockland County. Our not-for- profit community theater has been producing acclaimed plays and musicals every year since 1936. Through the years, Antrim has been the starting rung for many talented people who have gone on to professional theater, television, and big screen success. Our stage has been graced by Helen Hayes, Fred Gwynne, Henny Youngman, Burl Ives, Tyne Daly, Hugh McPhillips, Christine Andreas, Rene Auberjonais, Milton Berle, and many others.
