Established in 1965, the Davidson Community Players has earned a reputation for excellence. Ranking among the finest non-professional theatre companies in the Southeast, this beloved organization attracts theatre-lovers from throughout the Charlotte metropolitan area and draws an audience of more than 13,000 people in and around Lake Norman each year.
The company’s first, permanent home, the Armour Street Theatre, opened its doors in the fall of 2008. It provides an intimate performance venue for Main Stage productions, as well as a place for educational workshops and the theatre’s energetic, youth program – the Connie Company. In addition to its new home, this talented theatre company also performs annually in the Duke Family Performance Hall, a state-of-the-art theatre on the campus of Davidson College.
In 2011, Davidson Community Players won North Carolina Theatre Conference's Community Theatre of the Year and was recognized by Metrolina Theatre Association in 2012 for Best Production and Best Direction for Crazy for You and Best Actor and Best Supporting Actress in Rumors.
