Fodor's Expert Review The Players at Barker Playhouse

East Side Theater

Historic Benefit Street is an appropriate location for the oldest continuously running little theater in the U.S. The Players have been taking the stage every year since 1909 and at the Barker Playhouse since 1932---a pretty good run for an amateur theater group. The actors may not get paid, but performances are nothing short of professional: talent fairly leaps off the stage at the former church built in 1839. Past shows have included everything from Shakespeare to Christmas plays, original works by Providence playwrights to Stephen Sondheim musicals.
