Be Yourself While Being Someone Else! - Our Story and Purpose
The After School Players -
DID YOU KNOW THAT: According to the U.S. Department of Education, the arts are essential to every child's education. Experiencing and making works of art benefit students in their intellectual, personal, and social development. 

The concept of an after school arts program for kids started at St. Charles School in 2001 with a staged interpretation of Dr. Seuss's famous One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish. Fifteen years, 48 productions, and two locations later, we are proud to be the area's only venue dedicated to enriching the talents of young artists. 

OUR PURPOSEWe strive to start kids on a journey, a destination to discovery about themselves, their abilities, and what they are capable of achieving. We are dedicated to helping young artists unfold and nurture their God-given talents in a safe and creative environment. Our educational arts programs, including theater, music, movement and art, will teach, encourage, and inspire students to build confidence and believe in their passions.

THE DUBLIN GRANGE THEATRE: Affectionately known as the Dub, our venue is a renovated building constructed in 1921. It was home to the Dublin Grange, an association of farmers, for over fifty years. Ask anyone in Canfield, and most likely they've been to the Dub for a concert, recital, party or exercise class.

We continue this tradition by offering arts education classes and delightful children's theater productions based on classic literature. We also provide studio and rental space for birthday and graduation parties, bridal and baby showers and other milestone events.
