Our Mission

The mission of Wekiva River Players is to provide the community with theatrical entertainment, to provide the residents of the area with opportunities to participate in theatrical productions and to encourage the education, growth, development and interest in theater through support of the performing arts.

In pursuit of our mission, Wekiva River Players continuously recognizes and adheres to the values described below:

  • Community - WRP both serves and supports the performing arts interests of its community, which is Central Florida in general, and Seminole County in particular.
  • Service - WRP provides opportunities and support to other charitable organizations within its community. Although WRP is a charitable organization itself, WRP provides charities an opportunity to promote themselves in conjunction with WRP productions and may elect to donate a portion of WRP proceeds to the charities.
  • Diversity - Membership in the Wekiva River Players is open to all persons regardless of race, color, gender, age, religion, ancestry, national origin, marital status, sexual orientation, or handicap.
  • Volunteerism - WRP survives on the skills and dedication of volunteers. In many cases, WRP encourages volunteer support over paid positions.​
  • Quality - WRP productions and education services are to be of the highest quality commensurate with the skills of its volunteers and needs of its audience and members.
  • Respect - WRP recognizes the importance of the skills of its members and volunteers and the efforts they put forth to benefit the organization.
  • Security - WRP values the safety of its members and participants and attempts to provide an environment that is safe, free from harassment and a secure environment for children.

History of Wekiva River Players

Wekiva River Players is Seminole County's longest-running theater ensemble, performing continuously since 1993. From its beginnings WRP has served the community, not just providing theatrical entertainment, education and opportunities, but also giving back creatively to support important local causes through donations of time, money and talent. Over the years we've worked with a variety of charitable organizations, including our recent and ongoing involvement with Music for Melons, raising funds for breast cancer research.

To date, WRP has performed more than 90 shows and has evolved into primarily an educational theater program. Each year we produce shows for elementary and middle school performers as well as a full-length production for our high school performers. Currently, WRP uses a variety of venues including the Lake Mary High School and Eastmonte Civic Center in Altamonte Springs. We are confident that with a great deal of hard work, combined with support from the community, we will continue to provide Central Florida with education, opportunities, and most importantly, theatrical entertainment that is second to none.
