Since its founding in 1974, Freelance Players, Inc. has produced more than 280 original musicals, performed by young people for audiences of all ages. The high-quality family-friendly productions are lively, energetic and joyful.
Starting as one small Troupe more than 40 years ago, the Freelance Players have grown, today having six performance troupes and two Story Theater troupes in Brookline, Dover, Jamaica Plain, Needham and Newton.
Generally, each Troupe produces two original musicals a year and is staffed by theater professionals. Enrollment in the fall typically runs from September through January, and in the spring from January through May or June. In addition to providing training in acting, singing and dancing, our ensemble approach nurtures risk-taking, self-esteem, mutual respect and cooperation among students.
