Bay City Players

Message from the President

Welcome to Bay City Players, Michigan’s longest continuously operating community theatre. It’s hard to believe that we are embarking on our 99th season – and what a season we have planned for you!

Our Play Reading Committee not only selected wonderful offerings for Season 99, but is hard at work selecting plays for Season 100. That’s right, Season 100!

Our Season 100 Celebration Committee is working very hard in planning a celebration to be remembered. Thanks to all of you – volunteers, donors, members, and supporters – we have accumulated a seemingly endless number of stories and memories from the past 100 years, and we will be reliving many of them during our celebration year.

Under the leadership of Immediate Past President Dale Bills, your Board of Directors is working diligently on preparing a vision for our next 100 years. As part of that plan, we have purchased the building next to our building and are working on plans for possibly expanding parking and adding needed building space.

As President of your Board of Directors, I thank each and every one of you for your past, present and future support of Bay City Players. Without you and the entire community, there would be no Bay City Players. We are a proud part of our community and pledge to direct our efforts towards providing you with top-notch theatre. Remembering that we are community theatre, we would love to see you on stage, back stage, or in any other part you’d like to play in this organization. We are always looking for new friends to be a part of your Bay City Players.

Your thoughts and suggestions are important to our success. What do you like? What don’t you like? What would you like to see? Please share your thoughts by sending me a message at Or call our office at 989-893-5555.

Remember that great theatre really does live here!


Robert E. Chadwick, II
President, Board of Directors
