Blackwood Players Inc. is one of the oldest established community theatre groups in South Australia founded in 1951. They produce three full length productions each year including comedies, mysteries and dramas. Performances are at Blackwood Memorial Hall in the City of Mitcham but the membership is drawn from across the metropolitan area.
The organisation also will be setting up an auxiliary company in 2007 to accommodate tastes of the 15 to 35 age group and will produce a season of its own.
Blackwood Players firmly believes in the educational mission of live theatre and the importance of keeping young people interested and involved. For that reason, the company has recently established a collaborative relationship with the Unley-based Urban Myth Theatre of Youth to further enhance the outreach of both programs.
