Getting Back to Live Productions

Sumter Players has been entertaining audiences and inspiring the love of theater for decades. During 2020 due the pandemic, Sumter Players hosted 3 virtual events: "It's A Wonderful Life - A Live Radio Play," "Quaran-TEENS," and a Virtual Children's Workshop. Now, we are trying to get back to the live stage.

In Memory


In memory of a true friend and lifelong thespian, Sumter Players dedicates this production of "Antigone" to Richard Nettum.  He has been active in Sumter Players Community Theater as an actor, director and set builder in over 30 plays. Our hearts and prayers are with Brooks and Richard's family as we all remember this amazing man.
