The Addams Family


The Whitney Players is equally dedicated to instilling confidence and camaraderie while building acting, dancing and vocal skills. You can feel confident that your child’s unique style and talents will be celebrated and nurtured.



The Whitney Players is committed to giving actors a professional theatre experience, even as a community theatre. We are always looking for new talent to be featured as leads or as ensemble, as a performer’s skill and comfort will allow.
