Golden Autumn Players (GAP)

The Golden Autumn Players (GAP) are a group of Playmakers who have a desire to perform without the requirements of weeks-long rehearsals and line memorization. This group of senior citizens has performed in a variety of settings and focuses on community outreach, with hopes to continue bringing the arts to those who may not be able to go to the Theatre. While many performances are in private settings, they also offer many chances to see their public performances! 

If you are interested in joining GAP, please contact Paula Joines at or 336-488-6958

Upcoming Public Performances

Three on a Bench

“Three on a Bench” is a gentle series of playlets all set in a public park.   “Egg Salad Sandwiches”  is a picnic gone sour until wisdom intervenes.  “Red Carnations” explores caution before embarking on a blind date with charming results.  And “A Sunny Morning” showcases a pair of romantics remembering a youthful adventure from the perspective of experience.
