Lower Merion High School's Student-Run Theatre Organization
The extracurricular activity known as Lower Merion PLAYERS has existed since its 1965 origin as a student-run organization, providing a safe, artistic and enjoyable educational environment in which students can explore features of all types of theatrical productions, including reading and selection of plays and musicals, elements of scenic, costume and lighting design, direction and stage management.
PLAYERS strives to maintain its status as a student-run organization, with oversight by LMSD staff and artistic guidance from professionals from the Greater Philadelphia area theatre community, and with a board of student officers elected by their peers that participates fully and directly in making decisions that guide the organization.
Membership in Lower Merion PLAYERS is open and accessible to every student in the Lower Merion High School. This goal is reached through the continued practice of producing three full plays- a musical, a drama and a comedy- during each of the school’s three distinct activity seasons of fall, winter and spring.
