What is the history of Peterborough Players ?
The Peterborough Players produces 7 Main Stage shows each season that run late June through September, and two Second Company children's shows that run July and August. The Peterborough Players was founded in 1933 by Edith Bond Stearns -- EBS as she was known to friends -- a woman of imagination and vision with a love for the arts. To quote from Our Playhouse (available through Peterborough Players): “At the time EBS decided to purchase the Hadley Farm, it was abandoned and had no electricity or running water.”
