Salem Players

 Our mission: Through the medium of drama, in service to the congregation and community, Salem Players will endeavor to both entertain and explore the human condition in celebration and contemplation of God’s grace.  In its activities, Salem Players will use the benefits of common discipline and intergenerational fellowship as a channel for those whose artistic talent, varied skills, and good nature draws them to join in the creative challenge and redeeming joy of a theatrical production.

 All to the Glory of God!

Salem Players will hold their annual meeting /open house on Sunday January 14 at 2:00-3:00pm in Reformation Hall.
