Extended Run Players
The Extended Run Players: “Over
1,000 Years of Experience”
Let us entertain you!
The Extended Run Players are a group
of theatre lovers, ranging from seasoned veterans to stage-struck
tyros, all still growing and learning from one another. Founded
in 1996, the group:
fine productions of worthy plays in a reader’s theatre format
their love of theatre throughout San Antonio and its surrounding communities
the next generation of theatre artists at UIW
The Cadenza Singers, our musical division, is quite popular
with programs designed around various themes such as Big
Band Era, Vaudeville, Show Tunes, and much more.
We are convinced that inter-generational experiences help
to build a more inclusive community from which all benefit.
In addition to semi-annual productions on the University
of the Incarnate Word campus, both groups perform regularly
in retirement centers, senior communities, and a local community
Since 1997, we have donated 100%
of the profits from our productions to an Endowed Scholarship
for Theatre Arts majors, providing ever-growing scholarship
support for talented UIW undergraduates. In turn, UIW’s
Theatre Arts Department supports us with funding, facilities,
and faculty/student staff for our on-campus productions.
Booking the Extended Run Players gives your audience a wonderful
show, allows senior performers the opportunity to create
great theatre, and supports the education of young theatre
Our repertoire of shows includes
radio plays, stage classics, and original remembrances
written by company members. Our
performance fees are reasonable and the productions will
delight your audiences.
