Welcome to Handful Players!

Handful Players is a nonprofit children’s musical theatre. We’re all about helping kids find their creative voice, build self-esteem and learn skills for getting ahead in life.

We give kids a place after their school day ends to express themselves creatively and interact positively with other kids and professional performers — and it’s free!

Sure, participation can build better actors, dancers or singers. But what’s really important: kids learn teamwork, focus and personal responsibility, while exploring the magic of theatre to find their unique creative niche.

We’ve built a diverse company, led by talented, professional educators, performers, directors and even an MBA.

Handful Players is a special place where creative experience and life skills work hand-in-hand.
