Beechmont Players, Inc. is the community theatre group serving the eastern section of Greater Cincinnati beyond the Little Miami River. The 100+ members of this non-profit Ohio corporation donate their time and talents to bring live theatre to the nearly 200,000 residents of the area.
The Players performed their first production, Solid Gold Cadillac, in the fall of 1959 and have presented seasons of shows ever since. This season marks the Players’ 51st year of continuous community entertainment and their second full season as the Arts Organization in Residence at the new Anderson Center. The Players’ home, this state-of-the-art 223-seat Anderson Center Theatre provides an outstanding venue for Beechmont Players’ award-winning entertainment.
The Greater Cincinnati area is one of the strongest centers of community theatre in the United States. Beechmont Players, Inc. is a member of the Association of Community Theatres of Cincinnati (ACT), the Ohio Community Theatre Association (OCTA), and the American Association of Community Theatres (AACT). The Players participate actively in these associations, including presenting an excerpt of one of the season's shows at the OCTAfest competition each summer.
