The original Shoestring Players group started back in the 1930s. During World War II they suspended production because many members were in the service or busy supporting the war effort. In the 40s they resumed putting on shows that were wholesome family entertainment.The run continued well into the 1970s when the group became inactive.
We are back. Though perhaps small in number we are big in enthusiasm. Once again Norwalk has its own Community Theater Group. Our goal like that of the original group is to provide varied, family friendly, productions. Unlike going to the movies, live theater is much more interactive and the audience feels they are part of the show. Also, you have the opportunity to see friends, neighbors, and people you run into on the street, performing live.
Frequently you see talents you never knew they possessed. In the past it was not uncommon to see doctors, lawyers, bankers, builders, car dealers, factory workers, housewives and many other people from all walks of life take their turn performing on stage.
Norwalk area residents once again have an opportunity to be a part of little theater. Please join us and support our effort.
