Tellico Community Players History


The Tellico Village Players were formed in 1990 by John Sullivan and his sister-in-law, Barb Wozinak, neither of whom are living in 2014. The 1st production they put together was "Dirty Work Afoot", a melodrama that they staged at the Tellico Village Yacht Club in the fall of 1990.


During 1991, talented, theatre interested villagers formed the Tellico Village Players. They elected officers, wrote a charter and applied for their non-profit status. Local villagers like Carl Burke, Paula Carrico, Gene Wozniak, Bill Peterson, Inge Boyce, Bev Sullivan, Betty Cowley, Jean and Jack Reich and Helen Nicholson got the organization going. Plays that were comedies, dramas or musicals were selected and performed every year from then on.


Pat Provart, Doris and Bill Ryan, Karla and Dean Winkler entered the players group early on and contributed their musical, directing and acting talents. Significant people who dedicated themselves to this player's group have passed on over time.


An off shoot of the original players group was developed in 2010 by energetic, talented and theatre educated person Debbie Mayberry. It is entitled 'READERS THEATRE" and is intended to be a way for those who admit to finding memorization too difficult to still give them the trill of acting but in a different way. The can read their parts, use some appropriate props and costumes if helpful and delight their audiences with clever, delightful stories in low key venues, mostly being done at a no charge to their audiences.


Venues for performing the plays of the Tellico Community Players have moved around to a variety of places. They are still  looking and hoping for a permanent home to stage their amateur (almost professional) productions. Hopefully, this will become a reality in the very near future.


STAY TUNED.
