Newberry Community Players


The Newberry Community Players is a non-profit, all-volunteer organization dedicated to providing the opportunity to attend and participate in live theater for the citizens of Newberry County.

NCP believes that live theater is a key component to the quality of life of a vibrant community. The organization was founded in 1970 by a group of theater lovers led by teacher Steve McCutcheon. The group’s first production was “Winnie the Pooh” at the old Drayton St. School. Wanting a permanent home, the group purchased The Ritz Theater, a 1936 Art Deco movie house on Main St. They held their first production “Life With Father” there in 1975.
