Young Artists who POP on stage!

Play On Players is a children's theatre company founded by Haden Rider & Carly Berg, who are graduates of the Gainesville Theatre Alliance artist training program, a collaboration of the University of North Georgia and Brenau University, in Gainesville, GA. POP is comprised of a talented group of individuals ranging from ages 7 to 18 who are assembled to perform and then compete in an international theatre convention known as the Junior Theater Festival in Atlanta, GA. 

The Play On Players mission is to Provide Outstanding Productions by young artists who POP on stage! 
We strive to provide an engaging, safe, and creative environment for children by offering exciting experiences in musical theatre productions. Our goal is to inspire and strengthen self-confidence, individual expression, and theatre performance skills, while also developing life-long values, teamwork, and the love of performing live theatre for the community. In addition to the JTF competitions, P.O.P. performs full length performances of their productions. We look forward to the next show and an exciting weekend at the next JTF!
