The Community Players Of New Hamburg

Twice a year I help out my local community theatre company with pictures and for this years fall show The Community Players put on a brilliant production of Noises Off. Past shows have included 12 Angry Men and Dial M for Murder.

They really went all out this year o the production side, creating a massive rotating stage to show both the front and back of the ‘theatre’ in the play. And the second act, which had almost no spoken lines, was a brilliantly choreographed series of gags, slamming doors and prat falls.

In spring 2019 The Community Players are pleased to announce they will be performing Hunchback of Notre Dame!

Every spring I spend some time working with my home town's community theatre group documenting their production and this year was no different as The Community Players of New Hamburg put on an amazing production of the classic Mary Poppins.

When most people think of community theatre they think of small little productions in church basements but let me assure that isn't the case here.  They convert and entire arena into a professional stage complete with lighting, sound, tiered seating and a full live orchestra.   And to make things even more interesting this year of course Mary Poppins had to fly!

Check out some of my favourite pictures from the play and be sure to join their mailing list to be notified as soon as they announce their 2018 show!

The Community Players of New Hamburg


I was happy to be asked to help out with The Community Players of New Hamburg's production of 12 Angry Men.  This one was a little special since it was the first time they've decided to run a second show in the fall.
12 Angry Men is one of my all time favourite movies so I had to remind myself that I was there to take pictures instead of watching (Wife and I get to do that on Friday night!)
I had already done some promotional head shots for the production, which you can see here, so now it was time to focus on getting photographs of the actual production.  
Here are some of my favourites!
