Debut Players is the signature troupe of Debut Theatre Company. This troupe is for the experienced, confident and committed student. Debut Players presents public performances of classic literature by young actors for family audiences. They are a regionally-based auditioned group of 17 young actors between the ages of 10 and 17 years brought together by their love for the stage. True to the troupe structure, these emerging actors are responsible for every aspect of this production: from sets, costumes and publicity to lights, sound, special effects, and acting!

Debut Players is one of only three professional children’s performing arts companies found between California and Minnesota. Shows are in May and October. Rehearsals begin in July and January. Players must re-audition annually each June.

Actors who are 18 years old before a show begins rehearsal or have graduated high school are not eligible to be in Players. We try to rotate leads and cast with versatility in mind. Smaller roles contribute to the whole through stronger technical involvement.
