Farmington Town Players
The Farmington Town Players is a group of local theater lovers, who have been volunteering and performing in Farmington since 1985. The group is comprised of some local veteran members, who have been involved in the production, direction, and performance of a variety of stage plays and a few non-veteran players. The extensive list of performances over the last three decades reveals a staggering variety, including classics like: Your're a Good Man Charlie Brown (1986), Our Town (1998, done in homage to Farmington's bicentennial) and Neil Simon's Barefoot in the Park (2009), as well as holiday staples such as The Best Christmas Pageant Ever (1996), The Gift of the Magi & Dicken's A Christmas Carol (2002 & 2003, respectively). And while the group has also presented a handful of melodramas and murder mysteries, no one can forget the Player's overwhelming sense of humor and historical success, in comedic shows such as I Want My Mummy (1999), Men Are Dogs (2005), and Happily Ever, Once Upon (2007). Some of the most recent productions include: The Iliad, The Odyssey and All of Greek Mythology in 99 minutes or Less (2015), A Christmas Spectacular (2015), Mobile Home Sweet Home (2016), Thanks (2016), and The Nostalgia Cafe-USO Revue (2017).
