Primary Players Children’s Theatre Group is committed to working with young people to develop their theatrical artistry, specifically dramatic expression, artistic interpretation, technical presentation, makeup, sets, and costume design.  We anticipate that the students participating in Primary Players will develop a heightened appreciation of the theatrical arts, and will recognize the importance of the arts in their community.  We also make effort to ensure that each student’s time with us is enjoyable and engaging.

The goals of Primary Players Children’s Theatre Group include educating youngsters in the arts, cultivating their talents, and instructing students in life skills, like public speaking, self expression, confidence, professional integrity and responsibility.  We also aim to produce outstanding experiences for our young cast members and to to give our audiences excellent theatrical events. 

The Primary Players Children’s Theatre Group is honored to be the Resident Children’s Theatre Group of the Clayton Center for the Arts in Maryville, Tennessee.
