Good Shows, Good Friends, Good Times


Organized in the late twenties by the Robert Izants, Spencer Corletts, Harold Bells and the Neal Grays, The Hudson Players Guild performed many times during the thirties in Western Reserve Academy’s Chapel (when it still had a stage) to benefit the independent Hudson Primary School. The Guild ended its existence in the late thirties.

Currently, the Hudson Players perform at the Barlow Community Center on Oviatt St in Hudson, Ohio. This is a city owned facility the Players have rented for the last 20 plus seasons. While we have provided the furnishings, the equipment and the people hours to make our home a great theater, we have been very fortunate and appreciative for the support we get from the city of Hudson and the community members within in in providing a great space. We recently worked with the city on a backstage addition and facility upgrade to allow for even higher quality and more enjoyable performances.

In total, our group is comprised of all types. Professionals and amateurs, actors and stage hands, young and old, that all unite with a common goal. To create great theater along with fun and friendships. We believe in supporting all arts and collaborating beyond the stage. We have softball teams, bowling teams, Relay for Life efforts, group trips and more we continually partake in.

In 2020, we partnered with Hudson Community Foundation opening an endowment fund. Funds raised will go towards building the endowment so the Hudson Players can continue their mission of creating and supporting quality theater for Hudson and its surrounding communities in perpetuity.
