About us


Northwoods Players, LTD was founded in 1978 by a group of avid theatre personalities from the Phillips, Park falls and surrounding area. At that time their productions included a Fall “straight” play and a Spring musical. Some years later a children's show was presented in the Summer. In the beginning the shows were presented one weekend at Phillips High School and then moved the next weekend to the Park Falls High School. The decision was finally made that it would be easier for the audience to travel the 18 miles to Phillips than it would be to move an entire show, so Phillips High School became our home.

In approximately 1980 a grant was received from the Anne Marie Foundation and the Phillips School Board granted us a space in their storage shed. A costume and props room was also built. Now we could begin to accumulate materials to enhance our productions. In 2003 the Phillips School District granted us a piece of land and the Industrial Arts classes built us a 24' by 36', 10' high building as we had totally outgrown our little storage room.

In 1983 we began presenting Dinner Theatre at Westwood Supper Club when Director Gloria Mae Helixon and club owner Gordie Krueger agreed to attempt the venture. In 1986 musical numbers were added to the Dinner Theatre to enhance the skits and Dinner Theatre Plus was born and continues to this day.

Because of the success of the Dinner Theatre, in 1986 it was decided to attempt a Madrigal Dinner, also to be presented at Westwood Supper Club. This production has become increasingly popular over the years.

Currently, our year begins in early January with auditions for a Spring Musical to be performed at Phillips High School Auditorium in March. In May, auditions for Dinner Theatre Plus are held, with performances scheduled for the middle of July at a local supper club. Our Fall is very busy with 2 performances rehearsing at the same time: A Fall Play is performed at the Phillips Auditorium late in October or early November, and our Christmas Madrigal Dinner is held in early December at Club 13 in Phillips. For information on past shows and up-coming performance opportunities, please visit our “Gallery” section.
