*Merely Players was created by Mona Wood-Patterson and Charles Ford in 1995. Formerly the

statewide, and national recognition, Mona and Charles look forward to proceeding with their
Merely Players vision:


 *To enrich the cultural life of our community by consistently providing quality theatre in this region; broadening the range of theatrical experiences available to local theatergoers through relevant, exciting productions at affordable prices.

*To nurture and provide opportunity for community and homegrown artists, as we celebrate imagination and creativity in every aspect of our productions.

*To offer dynamic educational programs to area youth and to foster collaborations among the artists in our group, as well as with other local artists and groups
