THE HISTORY OF THE VPCT
Recognizing the need for accessible dedicated children’s theater programming in central southeast Ohio, the Victoria Players Children’s Theater was launched in 2016 by a group of parents as a subcommittee of the Baltimore Downtown Restoration Committee, a 501c3 organization. The focus for the first nine months was planning and fundraising, which culminated in the first musical production in February 2017. High School Musical, Jr. attracted talent from Fairfield County and central Ohio, and was a great success. Many of the actors that participated in that show are still involved in the theater today. The theater board continued to work in 2017 and 2018 to produce shows for both first time actors and experienced thespians. VPCT’s third season came with great productions John Lennon and Me, Willy Wonka Jr., and Disney’s Newsies. Opportunities also exist for students wanting off-stage experience, such as student stage managers, light and sound booth technicians, set design, and student directors. The newly renovated Victoria Opera House provides not only a home base for operations, but a beautiful, historic backdrop for practices and smaller productions.
