The Sherman Players

Where Community and Culture Come Together

“According to the Governor’s ordinance, we are suspending our production of Whodunnit and including it into our next season’s roster. Thank you for your continued support and please keep safe.”

Thank You Robin

The Sherman Players Board would like to say an enormous thank you to Robin Frome, who has stepped down from the position of President.

Robin has been our President since 2012 and during his tenure has overseen a vast array of productions, formed lasting community relationships and managed significant changes at the Playhouse.

As well as his official role, Robin has produced, directed and acted in many of our shows.  A fan of the classics he has been responsible for bringing Shakespeare back to our stage - directing popular productions of The Taming of the Shrew and The Tempest.  On stage he’s been seen most recently as the titular Tartuffe, Benjamin’s long suffering father in The Graduate, a blond Indian in Three By Tenn and having more fun than anyone should be allowed as the wicked Fleshcreep in 2019’s Panto, Jack and the Beanstalk.

A great champion of theatre arts in general and the Sherman Playhouse in particular, Robin has worked tirelessly to maintain its reputation for quality and variety.  Anyone who has directed or acted here always comments on what a welcoming community it is.  That is a testament to Robin and his leadership over the past eight years.

Thank you Robin and the very best wishes for your next chapter!

Hey everybody! What’s a great memory you have of the Sherman Playhouse? Is it a show, a part, an event, a person, a hilarious catastrophe? Let us know in the comments.
I’ll start with two (this is Steve Stott):
In Orwell’s 1984 feeling myself physically shaken after ‘torturing’ Alex.
And Chris Marker’s face in See How They Run - I’ve never seen that particular shade of red anywhere else in nature. He had to have his own, personal fan running on stage left!!! 😂

Sherman Playhouse

In the wake of the recent murders of black people and brutality by the police, the country is reckoning with the treatment of people of color in our society. The Sherman Players stand in solidarity with the Black Lives Matter movement.
We understand that while our organization will not tolerate racist behavior we have much to learn about the nature of racism and much to do to demonstrate that we are actively anti-racist. In addition to encouraging activism and financial contributions to organizations in support of the movement, we believe that art is one important way to learn about the issues facing black Americans. To this end, we would encourage our community to take a look at the below links to a small selection of major recent works by living black playwrights. Similarly we have included a link to an article on ten black theatre companies that you should check out.
