2010 marked the 20th season of the Chamber Players’ dinner theatre. Started in 1991 in storefront spaces, church basements and school auditoriums, the theatre’s permanent home was established in 2007 when arts patron Thelma Moore facilitated the purchase of the former United Presbyterian Church. The former place of worship has maintained its unique silhouette near the town square while the interior accommodates one of the longest-running dinner theatre companies in East Central Kansas. Award-winning resident playwright Gary Ray Stapp regularly premieres his comedies with the Chamber Players alongside shows by Neil Simon, Beth Henley and other well-known authors. Five productions a year plus a Youth Theatre Camp in the summer keep the building buzzing with activity year-round. Sell-outs are the norm for the productions in September, November, February, April and June.
