Kanawha Players Theatre

The mission of Kanawha Players is to produce quality theater in a nurturing community environment, while providing a place for education, training and encouragement to those interested in participating in the dramatic arts.

KP is the one of the oldest, continuously operating amateur theatre company in the country. It has produced a season of live productions since 1922. Even during the Great Depression, fires and floods, Kanawha Players kept entertaining.

In 1941 we were named the official Theatre of West Virginia.

Now, in our 94th season, with an enthusatic Board of Directors and a team of volunteers from the community (including you!), we plan to continue our long-standing tradition of bringing quality community theatre to West Virginia, as well as improve our community relations and involve the public even more than ever! So come play with us and enjoy the opportunities that the theatre can bring, you’ll meet new friends and make memories that last a lifetime.

Edgar Allan Poe stands alone in the flickering darkness of his mind, trying desperately to convince himself -- and us -- that he's not mad. The spell he weaves brings us a highly theatrical adaptation of four tales Poe himself considered his best: "The Raven," "The Fall of the House of Usher," "The Pit and the Pendulum," and "The Tell-Tale Heart." Enter the world of Poe and check your heartbeat at the door.
