For the love of theatre.....

No stage, no sets, no props or costumes, no money....with nothing but a love of

live theatre and a lot of hard work, the Tellico Community Players put on their first

production, Dirty Work Afoot, in September, 1990 at the Tellico Village Yacht Club.

Fast forward 24 years.....with a long-term affordable lease for the former site of

the Tellico Village Library at Lakeside Plaza and generous donations from the

community, $100,000.00 was raised to create the 136-seat Tellico Community

Playhouse, which opened October, 2014 with Red Velvet Cake Wars.

Another 4 years passed and the Tellico Community Players presented their 100th production, Dixie Swim Club.

Once a small, informal group of theatre devotees, today the TCP is an all volunteer

non-profit organization providing an outlet for creative community involvement in

the performing arts and stagecraft as they continue their passionate history of

quality performances that enrich, entertain, and educate audiences.

The Tellico Community Players is a proud member of the American Association of Community Theatre.
