Locke’s Island Players was formed in early 2017. Since then they have grown to a very active theatre group in Lockeport. In 2018 they are planning approximately 18 nights of entertainment. 

They are searching for new members of all ages, kids, teens and adults. From an audience point of view theatre consists of acting, singing and dancing; in reality it is much more involved. There are many “behind the scenes” parts to play – set construction, costumes, make-up and hair to name a few. 

If you are interested in being on stage, off stage, directing, stage managing, joining a “pit band” or just doing “whatever needs doing”, you can meet them any Thursday evening at 7 pm at 76 Brighton Road.
