Sun City Players Community Theater

A Community Theater Focused on Performance, Entertainment & Fellowship

Est. 1961 Sun City AZ

Historical records have been found in the microfilm newspaper records in the AZ State Archives at 19th Avenue and Madison.  On May 31, 1961, The Daily News Sun announced that Sun City Players were Sun City’s newest club and joined the ranks among the first clubs organized in Sun City.


On January 8, 9 and 10, 1962, only seven months after the club’s formation, “Marge” a light opera was presented by Players at the Town Hall (the original Fairway Center) rather than at the Community Center (Oakmont).
