Northland Players, Inc. was organized as a 50IC 3 non-profit community theater in 1971. For several years it performed in Cheboygan area high schools and in dinner theater at local restaurants. After the Cheboygan Opera House was restored in 1984, Northland Players began performing two productions on the Opera House stage each year and this tradition continues today. Northland Players also performs two dinner theater productions each year.

In addition, Northland Noteables, a vocal ensemble comprised of players members, performs in dinner theater at Christmas and various other venues in the community throughout the year.

Northland Players has a theater center complete with a stage, which is the location for play rehearsals, construction of sets, storage for theater costumes, props and records.

Membership is open to anyone over the age of eighteen years, having an interest in the theater experience. Our Angel Program provides an opportunity for individuals who are not interested in appearing on stage or working backstage to provide financial support to the Northland Players. Charitable donations will be receipted and “Angel” benefactors will be acknowledged in our play programs.
