WESTFORD — The Nashoba Players, which began as Groton Theatre and Littleton Theatre Guild, is celebrating 45 years this year, according to an announcement from The Players.

A member of the Eastern Massachusetts Association of Community Theatres and recipients of repeated recognitions at EMACT Festivals for outstanding achievements, The Players enjoy its residence at the intimate and inviting Parish Center for the Arts at 10 Lincoln St., according to the theater group.

Over the years, The Players have previously entertained audiences with fun-filled murder mysteries and dinner theatre, and have sponsored performances by guest artists. It has also offered summer theatre workshops for young people in the community culminating in a musical. In short, The Players are a dynamic, nonprofit community theatre dedicated to providing cultural enrichment and quality entertainment through live theatre.

Celebrating its 45-year anniversary, this year The Players will present ‘The Foreigner’ by Larry Shue, a comedy opening in March, and “an audience-pleasing, interactive spoof The Players cannot yet name, with adults acting like children” in October.

Audiences, talented cast and crew members, and other volunteers come from many towns including Westford, Carlisle, Chelmsford, Lowell, Dracut, Groton, Ayer, Littleton, Pepperell, Dunstable, Acton, Shirley, Nashua, Marlboro, Berlin, Hudson, Melrose, Boston, Arlington, Harvard, Boxboro, Leominster, Lunenburg, Townsend, Tyngsboro and more, according to The Players.

To keep things in motion for almost a half-century, much needed support comes from donors and sponsors from all of the Players’ communities. Recently, The Players have started a fundraising campaign to kickstart 2022’s season line-up.

Show program ads range from $25 to $100, but donations in all amounts are welcomed and truly appreciated. Sponsorship tiers are also available from $100 to $5,000.
