General information


Langhorne Players is a non-equity theater that welcomes new talent who share a commitment to producing thoughtful and provocative plays of the highest quality. Each season we try to offer a variety of plays with an array of challenging roles suitable for a wide demographic. All casting is done through open auditions supervised by the play’s director. Audition times and dates are posted in advance on our website as well as other area theater callboards.

Rehearsals usually run several hours four days a week during non-business hours for six or seven weeks. Participation in set and prop construction is encouraged but subject to an individual’s schedule and abilities.

If you have a love of acting and an appreciation for thought provoking plays, please consider Langhorne Players. Email us for more information. 

Langhorne Players is a non-profit, non-union, all volunteer theater company.


Our slate is usually in place by October. Prospective directors are encouraged to read all of the plays in the upcoming season. If you are passionate about a play and would like to direct it, email us. Please indicate which play you are interested in and attach your resume.  Interviews will be scheduled for mid-December.
During this interview, the director should share their vision and ideas about the play as well as its production. We look for directors to have a passion for the play and the characters and the story they tell. In addition, directors must be capable of overseeing all aspects of the show including casting, props, costumes, set decoration, sound, lighting, and arranging for a stage manager.
