Peninsula Players Awarded Arts Board Grant

Peninsula Players Theatre has been awarded a grant from the Wisconsin Arts Board through its Creation & Presentation program. It will support Peninsula Players Theatre’s continued development and presentation of outstanding theatrical productions and community programs.

“I am extremely thrilled that this grant will assist Peninsula Players to continue to create high-caliber theater for the people of Door County and its visitors,” said Brian Kelsey, Peninsula Players Theatre’s managing director. “It is particularly rewarding to see panel members from across the state, Minnesota and Illinois acknowledge the significance of this Door County theatrical gem.”

The 2019 performance season opens with A Trick of the Light, the world premiere of a new comedy by Peter Moore. George Washington’s Teeth – a new, fast-paced comedy by Mark St. Germain that’s up next – is another new work making its Midwest premiere at Peninsula Players. This light romp features a small-town historical society trying to save itself by procuring a pair of historical dentures as an attraction.

The 2019 season also includes mystery, romance, music and the warm-hearted, yet riveting true story of Henrietta Swan Leavitt, a pioneering scientist in the 1890s. Season and group tickets are on sale now for the 2019 season. Single-ticket sales begin March 1. Learn more at
