The Calumet Players are a non-profit theater group presenting three
main-stage and two Children's Theater shows a year at the Performing
Arts Center in Pipestone, Minnesota. We have been in operation since 1994
and were incorporated in 1996. The Calumet Players have also
participated in other community events such as the Pipestone Civil War
Days and the Pipestone Watertower Festival. We look forward to having you on our stage and in our audience.
CALUMET PLAYERS' HISTORY
Calumet Players were born through the interests and efforts of a
small group of individuals in the spring of 1994. The organizers of
this group wanted to utilize the brand-new arts facility in town --
the Pipestone Performing Arts Center -- for productions featuring
local talent. they approached a director, assembled a multi-age cast,
and staged the comedy See How They Run in August of that year.
Over the next fifteen months, these three organizers - along with a
growing following of actors and crew -- presented three additional
shows. The last, The Diary of Anne Frank, in November of 1995,
played to numerous sold out houses. Formal organization of the
Calumet Players took place in March of 1996. In 1998, The Calumet
Players further diversified their offerings by accepting management
of the Children's Theatre. The Calumet Players have featured
productions ranging from comedies and melodramas to musicals and
