Thanks For Your Support

A while ago we asked you all to review our organization, and the reviews we have received so far are absolutely glowing (Click Here To Seem Them)!  We just wanted to take the time to thank our volunteers, donors, the public and our board members for your continued support. The Court House Players would not be what it is today with out you all.

Rogers & Hammerstein's Cinderella, 2012
All of your support has lead to the production of 102 comedies, dramas, murder mysteries and musicals and 35 Missoula Children's Theater camps to date.  All the while affecting the lives of thousands of patrons in Gloucester, Mathews, Middlesex, Newport News, Hampton, Norfolk, Virginia Beach and Richmond.

 If you are someone who is considering getting involved with CHP or any community theater group here are some interesting tidbits of information for you to think upon.

Music Man, 2009
“Readers and arts participants are more than twice as likely to volunteer in their communities.”
~ National Endowment for the Arts

“Students who receive 4 or more years of arts influence in education outperformed non-arts students on the SAT. The scores showed that arts students scored 59 points higher in verbal and 44 points higher in math than
non-arts students.”
~ College Entrance Examination Board

“By every other measure, arts participants are more physically active.”
~ National Endowment for the Arts

“Many colleges view participation in the arts and music as valuable experience that broadens students’ understanding and appreciation of the world around them.”
~ U.S Department of Education

“The research suggests the opportunity to perform may be a powerful tool to help overcome fears and see that they can succeed.”
~ National Assembly of State Art Agencies

If you have any questions about what we do or how you can get involved please don't hesitate to ask! Email call us (804-725-0474) anytime! If our schedule doesn't work with yours, try back later! In the meantime here is a list of other theater groups in the area in which you could get involved in: Peninsula Community Theater, Poquoson Island Players, The Williamsburg Players, Lancaster Players, Ferguson Center for the Arts and The Westmoreland Players.

We hope to see you around, and keep the reviews of CHP on coming!
