The Drexel Players


The Drexel Players are a student-run organization that works in conjunction with Drexel University's Performing Arts Department to produce quality theatre and provide service for the community. 

The Players produce three mainstage shows each year: a musical, a play, and a professional show as part of the Mandell Professionals in Residence Project. Students participate in all aspects of theatre performance and production including: acting, directing, design, costumes, lighting, sets, sound, publicity, and box office. Auditions occur in the spring and the beginning of each fall term for incoming students.


Scholarships are available. Click here to learn more.
