The Promise Players

The Promise Players began out of a wish to perform plays that were full-length in nature, supportive and/or challenging of a Christian's daily walk with Christ, and that didn't contain swearing or promote situations that are considered immoral.  This is not to say we don't want to deal with realistic situations of human life, but instead to look at life through the eyes of people who struggle with, and deal with, those situations using a perspective of faith.

 

We are a non-denominational community Christian theatre group that is based at the Lampeter Church of the Brethren. We belong to one God, not one denomination.  Our goal is to promote Christ and challenge ourselves as well as our audience to apply Him to our daily lives and then support that as a real possibility.

 

We cover our operating expenses through donations at the door and then give the rest to local charities. Our plan is to continue donating in this way to a charity with each production. All participants are volunteers and unpaid, whether it be onstage or offstage, thus increasing the amount we can share with our beneficiary. 

 

The Promise Players held their debut performance in October of 1995.  "Pokeweed and Mrs. Gasp and Other One-Acts With a Point-of-View" by Anita Higman was chosen due to the flexibility in the casting of four one-act plays.  There was no way of knowing if there was any interest in performing in an unknown play that dealt with God as a presence in our daily lives. Thankfully, just the right persons and number of persons auditioned and we were on our way.

 

We try to keep away from the seasonal materials that most churches are willing to do themselves.  While we do not have the resources or facilities of many of the local theaters, we are definitely growing and improving in all areas of theatre.  

 

Our goal is to continue this growth and share the gifts and talents God gave us for His honor.
