ABOUT CLOCKTOWER PLAYERS..
In 1902, the residents of Irvington built Irvington Town Hall, and from the start, it acted as a cultural and political hub. By mid-century, when formal balls, tea dances, and melodramas had lost ground, our theater suffered the effects of disuse and was eventually condemned to darkness.
In 1977, Clocktower Players, Inc. was founded to reinvigorate the theater by renovating the hall and by developing programs to promote its traditional use as a center for community discussion and celebration.
In the fall of 1978, the theater reopened its doors, and Clocktower Players launched its Youth Theater program. In 1989, Michael C. Penta, Clocktower Players Founding Artistic Director, instituted our Community Theater program to showcase local talent.
Since 2006, Cagle McDonald has led our staff and volunteer teams as Artistic and Executive Director and has significantly grown all programming. Cagle champions diversity and produces works that highlight the breadth of the human experience—Ragtime, In the Heights, Rent, La Cage Aux Folles, Spring Awakening and Purlie—the first all-black musical to grace the Irvington stage.
What CLOCKTOWER PLAYERS IS DOING Now
In the 2016-17 Season, youth performers were cheered on by family and friends as they presented hilarious and heart-warming productions of Mulan, James and the Giant Peach, Singin' In The Rain, Xanadu, Mary Poppins, and SUMMER STAGE presented a fantastic showcase of Broadway hits. As for our adult performers, our talented casts brought down the house in culturally and ethnically diverse productions of Dreamgirls, Sister Act, and Beauty and the Beast.
