The Carnegie Players was started 29 years ago by a dedicated group of Rensselaer locals, as an avenue for adults and children from the community to showcase their talents. Since then we have produced over 42 plays and musicals, relying on volunteers with a passion for the stage, performing to area residents with a passion for the theater. Our current board boasts twelve members. Individuals who have dedicated their time and resources to the success of Carnegie as we move forward through another exciting production.
Carnegie Players would not be here, were it not for the lives devoted to its creation. We would like to take a moment to honor a few of those people: Wally Laird and his family.
"Through hard work, dedication and working together, many lasting friendships and lifetime bonds have evolved with community theater of the Carnegie Players. We are now starting our 27th year, with new challenges presenting itself with the coronavirus. We would like to thank the Rensselaer community for their support of the Carnegie players." -Ron Jordan, 2021
