Become Part of the Act

You Can Participate In So Many Ways

Each season, we strive to bring the most popular, compelling and entertaining works to you with the most talented and brightest professionals in the industry.

Stage Door Players will always place an emphasis on quality and professionalism of our productions, while continuing to educate and expand the theatrical knowledge and experience of both our audiences and our talent.

To put on a play with some of the best talent in the area takes a substantial financial obligation by our team of theater professionals.

Each non-musical play costs about $15,000 – $25,000 with professional talent, sets, costumes, wigs, lighting, sound and royalties.

Each Musical is between $40,000 – $45,000 to bring a quality production to you. To bring you an enjoyable and full entertainment experience, our costs increase due to royalties, having musicians, choreographers, additional talent, and typically larger sets, more lighting and sound systems. Our musicians, choreographers, musical directors, royalties, and expanded technical requirements increase our costs to produce for you an enjoyable and full entertainment experience

With your support and the support of others like you, Stage Door Players hopes to expand our reach into some community-based programming, to expand our anti-bullying program to more schools and students, to bring education and programs to younger audiences in the near future, and to create a larger space to make that all happen. 

To do that, we need your support and help. How can you help create and bring some of the best talent to Dunwoody’s theatrical scene?
Sponsor a show, advertise in our programs, or become a donor.

Stage Door Players is committed to serving the entire community and to continually developing new theatre-going audiences
