Since 1992, the Castle Craig Players have entertained and enlightened our audiences while providing an environment for the greater Meriden community to explore their creativity. Our directors, singers, actors, costumers and choreographers are all volunteer members of our community – teachers, business owners, seniors, parents, university students, and youth – who have special talents and interests and yearn for a creative outlet.
A Castle Craig show is as much about our community celebrating its special treasures as it is about the shared storytelling that live theatre facilitates.
Believe it or not – ticket sales only cover 60% of our operating costs. We can only continue our mission with the support of donors and sponsors like you. As an all volunteer, 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, every penny of your support is fully tax deductible and goes directly back into the community, and will help us keep building a successful, sustainable theatre culture in Meriden.
Even if you do not see yourself as a “theater person”, your contribution tells the public that you recognize a rich cultural experience is important.
I am so very impressed with the quality of the shows being offered. I truly believe that Castle Craig Players are a hidden gem not only in Meriden – but in all of Connecticut.
The caliber of talent was truly of Broadway quality! We’ve been attending your shows for close to ten years, and you never disappoint!
This group always pulls off something that is a real gift to us all. No other local theater can begin to match your productions. Meriden is very fortunate to have the CCP!
Loved Spamalot ! Saw it at the Bushnell, and I have to say, I liked your production better. I enjoy the small theater atmosphere.
You don’t usually see performances like this in community theater. Thank you for all the joy and culture that you bring to our community!
We love this theater! It might be a small, intimate theater, but it has the talent level that rivals most of the professional theaters in the state!
Thoroughly enjoyable. CCP productions are always creative and clever, and make maximum usage of limited stage space.
I have been a patron for years and cannot say enough about the Castle Craig Players! They are constantly working hard, raising the bar, expanding their offerings – and their cabaret-style seating makes the whole experience more enjoyable! I attend regularly and highly recommend.
