The Bay Players is a non-profit Community Theatre organization
centered in Duxbury, Massachusetts, and serving the Boston South Shore area. Its purpose is to provide individuals with the
opportunity to perform and produce theatrical shows and events. The Bay Players produces, on average, three stage productions
per year. These include comedies, dramas and musicals. The shows vary every season based upon the interest of the membership.
Bay Players was founded in 1956 as the Duxbury Bay Players and was comprised of a nucleus of actors from the recently
closed Duxbury Playhouse. The first production was The Happy Time which opened on April 26, 1956. Since then, the
group has produced and performed over 125 shows. After their first musical, Oklahoma, in 1969, actors and singers
were attracted from communities outside of Duxbury and membership now includes 13 South Shore communities.
Players has not had a permanent location to call home, but over the years has performed in several communities
on the South Shore including Duxbury, Kingston, Plymouth and Marshfield.
As with the original Duxbury Bay Players,
anyone interested in theatre is welcome to audition or participate in the production of the shows

fun! Here are some of the production jobs that are critical to every show:
