“Life is a stage…Be a Player.”
William Shakespeare said that life is a stage and we are merely players. The Wartburg Players is a drama organization designed to promote active participation on stage and off. All students are welcome and encouraged to participate and will receive information regarding plays and other acting/ entertainment opportunities. Two recent Wartburg Players productions were selected for the Kennedy Center American Theatre Festival. All productions are staged in the McCaskey Lyceum of the Saemann Student Center unless noted otherwise.
