Adaptive Community Theatre Presents Footloose

A.C.T. (Adaptive Community Theater) through Community Players, Inc is a theater program for youth and adults with a variety of developmental, cognitive, emotional, and physical disabilities. In this program, participants are given opportunities to shine through performing in a stage production, which will include drama, music, and dance. Our theater believes that the future of the performing arts should be accessible to all.

Not only can involvement in the arts strongly impact multiple areas of their life, but it can also have an impact on our community. We strive to enrich the lives of our actors with disabilities by encouraging their creative talents when performing, singing, and dancing.

Our production staff and “buddies” will support our actors in specific areas, such as learning lines, learning stage cues, prompting during performances, facilitating small group activities, and other support as specified on an individual basis.

Our program is open to ages 16 and up. This program is intended to provide inclusion in an activity that sparks creativity, self-confidence, social interaction, and positive self-esteem. Join our warm, inclusive group of actors, singers, and dancers. They will be surrounded by friends, family, and caring professional directors, actors, and other theater members.

In this two-week program, they will work with a team of theater teachers and student aides, following a musical theater format. They will learn through vocal warm-ups, songs, dance, interpretive movements, and theatrical games. And then we will bring it all together at performances that are open to family, friends, and the community. Our purpose is to develop communication, artistic, and leadership skills, and lasting professional and personal friendships.

July 15th – 19th, 22th – 25 9am-12pm

Shows: July 26th & 27th @ 7pm, July 28th @ 2pm


When Ren and his mother move from Chicago to a small farming town, he is prepared for the inevitable adjustment period at his new high school. What he isn’t prepared for are the rigorous local edicts, including a ban on dancing instituted by the local preacher, determined to exercise the control over the town’s youth that he cannot command in his own home. When the reverend’s rebellious daughter sets her sights on Ren, her roughneck boyfriend tries to sabotage Ren’s reputation, with many of the locals eager to believe the worst about the new kid. The heartfelt story that emerges is of a father longing for the son he lost and of a young man aching for the father who walked out on him. To the rockin’ rhythm of its Oscar and Tony-nominated Top 40 score (the soundtrack album reached number one on the Billboard charts and has sold over 17 million copies!) and augmented with dynamic new songs for the stage musical, Footloose celebrates the wisdom of listening to young people, guiding them with a warm heart and an open mind.


Community Players, Inc. is a non-profit, volunteer-run, donor-sustained organization.

​Our volunteer and donor support has given Community Players Inc. the opportunity to provide entertainment to Sulphur Springs and the surrounding areas for 40+ years!

​In addition to our primary mission of furthering the Arts, we strive to provide opportunities to aspiring actors and actresses, as well as persons interested in the “behind the scenes” workings of theatre.

​We also bring opportunity and fun to the children of Sulphur Springs and the surrounding area by offering a Children’s Workshop during the summer season. This has been a very successful endeavor that allows our children the chance to see what happens throughout the production of a play from start to finish, as well as give them the opportunity to perform or control the backstage elements of a performance.
