About Us

The Lake Country Players, formerly The Greene County Players, was established in January 2011 and presented their first production, The Dixie Swim Club, February 24-26, 2011 at Festival Hall in Downtown Greensboro, Georgia. Founding Artistic Director John Copelan was astounded at the response by the Georgia Lake Country residents and a new theater troupe was born.
 The company continued to grow and in December 2015 it became a non-profit, changing its name to The Lake Country Players and making it possible for tax-deductible contributions to be made directly to The Lake Country Players.  The new name reflects our desire to attract both troupe and audience members from the entire lake area, and not just Greene County.
 2018 marks the beginning of the eighth year for the troupe. Three productions are planned, including The Lake Country Players' annual signature production; Tasties, Toddies & Theatrics. This is an evening featuring dinner, a cabaret, and a one-act comedy, which has become one of the most anticipated events of the year.


 Our Venue


The Lake Country Players' performances are currently held at Festival Hall on Main Street in Downtown Greensboro, Georgia. Because of the construction of risers for our productions, we have the most intimate environment for live theater imaginable. The theater is equipped with a state-of-the-art sound system, and there is not a bad seat in the house.

Since 2011, the  theater company has gained the reputation for quality productions and has become the premiere community theater company in this area.

The Sisters of Perpetual Sewing miss the eexcitement of the old days when they were saving convents and reuniting long-lost families. So when they learn that the orphanage where Paul and Kate grew up is in peril, they can't wait to come to the rescue. Everyone pitches in to mount aj play to raise money, but it's no easy feat when Kate's expecting any day, Sally's hiding from stage-fright-stricken Paul after another flight from the altar, Mother Superior's acting is unexpectedly narcoleptic, and the sisters' award-winning wine keeps getting switched with the grape juice. The merry mix-ups multiply in this warm and winsome sequel to Drinking Habits
