Merely players


The Merely Players began in 1982 during "Bend of the River Days." Since then, they have produced over 100 shows, and touched the lives of more than 30,000 volunteers and patrons.

The Merely Players is a pillar of the community. Their dedicated and talented staff is committed to bringing southern Minnesota quality theatre for the entire family. They attract fantastic volunteer talent both on the stage and behind the scenes. Each season they typically produce a large musical, comedy and/or drama, and a children's show. Our repertoire of theatrical productions includes, Guys and Dolls, Oklahoma, Godspell, Cinderella, Snow White, The Wind in the Willows, Rumors, The Nerd, Dancing at Lughnasa, The Fantastiks, and James and the Giant Peach, just to name a few of the 100+ shows produced since 1982.
