Falls Players Community Theater
1200 Pierce Street
Black River Falls,
The Idea of the Falls Players was the dream of Black River Falls Middle School music teacher Margaret Severson. It began its germination in the summer of 1964 as a term paper. Personal affairs put the idea on hold, but it broke loose in 1974. A friend thought it would be fun to do "1776" for the bicentennial.
The Falls Players was organized as a non-profit organization and launched with a debut performance of two, one-act plays to local community groups. February 1975 was proclaimed "Community Theater Month" by Black River Falls Mayor Mike Anderson. The first real season (1975-76) began with "Come Blow Your Horn," "The Brave Little Tailor," and "1776."
Today's productions are overseen by an active board of directors and hundreds of enthusiastic volunteers and patrons, drawing acting talent and audiences from a 50-mile radius.
