Our mission is to impact theatre audiences and artists by telling culturally-relevant stories from a Christian worldview. With touring shows throughout East TN, MainStage shows in Knoxville theatre venues, and other programming, The WordPlayers delights in influencing and entertaining with Christ-centered art. The WordPlayers encourages a positive, loving and creative work environment for artists.
Steel Magnolias and A Laura Ingalls Wilder Christmas are just a couple of the phenomenal shows we will perform this season. See what other great shows we are producing!
Since we began in the mid-1990's, we've performed a great deal of shows. Take a look at our rich production history!
In order to put on our shows, we need help from our faithful fans, friends, and families. Thankfully, God and all of our supporters have been very generous and helpful in the past. If you find our ministry to be a worthy cause, we encourage you to consider making a donation to our non-profit organization.
