This Sunday @ 7pm: Play Reading + MORE @ Chatham Community Players


Sundays @ 7 presents
Nov. 19 @ 7:00 pm
Only $5 and BYOB!




The Chatham Community Players is excited to present Lee Blessing’s Eleemosynary as a part of their successful Play Reading Series. One Night ONLY – Sunday, November 19, 2023, at 7:00 at the Chatham Playhouse, 23 North Passaic Avenue, in Chatham. Alyson Halter directs.

The play probes into the delicate relationship of three singular women: the grandmother, Dorothea, who has sought to assert her independence through strong-willed eccentricity; her brilliant daughter, Artie (Artemis), who has fled the stifling domination of her mother; and Artie’s daughter, Echo, a child of exceptional intellect—and sensitivity—whom Artie has abandoned to an upbringing by Dorothea.




Auditions for Tony Award- Winning

Auditions for Tony Award Winning, "Beauty Queen of Leenane"


The Chatham Players will hold auditions for THE BEAUTY QUEEN OF LEENANE by Martin McDonagh on Sunday, December 3rd, at 6pm and Monday, December 4th, at 7pm at The Chatham Playhouse 23 North Passaic Ave. Chatham. Actors must check in to the auditions by 7:30pm. Production dates are March 1 - 16, 2024. Bill Purdy directs.

Set in the mountains of Connemara, County Galway,
THE BEAUTY QUEEN OF LEENANE tells the darkly comic tale of Maureen Folan, a plain and lonely woman in her early forties, and Mag, her manipulative aging mother, whose interference in Maureen’s first and possibly final chance of a loving relationship sets in motion a train of events that leads inexorably towards the play’s terrifying d√©nouement.

Chatham Players is offering an eight-week session of after school theater classes on Tuesday Afternoons from January 16 through March 5, 2024.

  • INTRODUCTION TO ACTING (ages 11 to 17)  - 3:30 to 4:30 pm. This class is specifically designed for students who want to try acting for the first time.  Using a combination of improvisation and scripted work, you’ll learn to develop believable characters and find a comfort level with performing in front of an audience.
  • CREATIVE DRAMA (ages 5 to 10) - 4:30 to 5:30 pm. A high-energy experience that packs loads of fun into a single hour, this class features theater games and various activities that help young performers explore their individual creativity, while also learning how to work as part of a group.
  • AUDITION WORKSHOP (ages 13 to 17) - 5:30 to 6:30 pm. Whether preparing to audition for a school production or looking toward future shows, this workshop offers a peek behind the audition table and will help students reduce nerves, find material, and become more comfortable in the audition setting.
