Gateway Players Theatre, Inc. is an all-volunteer community theater providing quality live
theatre performances and workshops to Southbridge, Sturbridge, and Charlton, Massachusetts
and surrounding areas.
Gateway Players Theatre, Inc. started in 1975, when a group of interested community members
decided that Southbridge needed a theater group to bring live productions to the area. First
using local schools and borrowed rehearsal and storage space, Gateway then moved into its
current home in 1978, when Ruth Wells (of the American Optical Company Wells family) donated
her home on Main Street as a cultural center in Southbridge.
Gateway offers a full season of productions, usually performed at Elm Street Congregational Church, 61 Elm Street, Southbridge, MA, as well as
workshops for youths and adults. Auditions are open to all, and new members are always welcome.
Gateway Players Theatre, Inc. is a non-profit educational organization dedicated to the
support and encouragement of the arts and the development of talent and creativity,
endeavoring to offer the community a program of diversified theatrical fare while providing
its members, both adult and youth, with opportunities for participation and training in the
Upcoming Board Meetings - Tuesday April 23 and May 21 at 7pm at the Southbridge Community Center, Southbridge.
