We are a local theatre group made up of people from all over the Auglaize, Mercer, Shelby, and Darke County area. We welcome performers of all ages and backgrounds. Our goals are to promote our love for the theatre through building community values: teamwork, confidence, musicianship, and passion for what you do.
Established in 1967, the Crescent Players group was founded as a community theatre group for people of all ages in the West-Central Ohio area. We started performing in the Crescent Theater in Minster, Ohio. Our name pays tribute to the theater where we began. When the theater closed in the early 1990s, we moved on to other venues and performance sites.
We’ve only grown from there. Over the years, we have performed plays, musicals, short skits, as well as talent/variety-type shows. Today, you can see us perform in local high school auditoriums in the area for our spring musicals and cabaret performances. We are proud of our long history, as well as the hundreds of cast members, past and present, who have been a part of the Crescent Players family.
