Village Players of Fort Thomas is a vibrant community theatre, continually producing plays and musicals for almost 60 years. Our productions range across a spectrum of periods and styles, presented in our intimate three-quarter thrust performance space in the heart of Fort Thomas, Kentucky. We stage innovative and of-the-moment works alongside beloved classic pieces while serving as an incubator for new talent, ideas, and writing. Each season features four mainstage shows, including a family-friendly winter production, as well as a summer production of original short plays produced by the New Works branch of the group.
Village Players is a member of the American Association of Community Theatre (AACT), Association of Community Theatres Cincinnati (ACT), Ohio Community Theatre Association (OCTA), and the Kentucky Theatre Association (KTA).
All performances take place at Village Players of Fort Thomas, at 8 N. Fort Thomas Ave. The theatre is located in the basement of the building. There are two entrances; from the street, you'll see our yellow awning on the left side of the building, which will lead you down the stairs to our box office entrance. Parking for this entrance is available on the street, or in the US Bank parking lot. Alternatively, you're welcome to use our back parking lot (off of Miller Ln), which is wheelchair accessible. If you use the back entrance, please proceed through the theatre to the box office to check-in.

Covid-19 Safety Protocols for Live Performances
Effective immediately, and in concordance with guidelines issued by the State of Kentucky, Village Players will require masking for patrons and crew regardless of vaccination or test-result status for all live performances until further notice. Concessions will be limited to bottled water, though patrons may bring covered, outside snacks (non-alcoholic) to enjoy outside of the performance space before the show and during intermission.
Masks must be worn correctly, covering both the mouth and nose, while inside the building and during the entirety of each performance. Village Players reserves the right to revoke admission to any performance at any point for lack of adherence to this policy. Our first priority is the safety and well-being of our cast, crew, volunteers, and patrons.
