Welcome to the Hyde Park Community Players website.


We gave you The Tempest, by William Shakespeare for two weekends in two outdoor locations.

The show was free to all.  We are grateful to everyone who donated to  help make the magic that will be our 2016-2017 season!  Sadly, our last two performances were rained out.  That’s always a danger when you play outside.  Thanks and apologies to those who braved the weather on Saturday and Sunday and stuck with us till the rain washed us away.  If you hoped to make a donation but didn’t get a chance–because of weather or any other reason, you can still donate to the Players right here on our website.  And every donation is tax-deductible!

HPCP presents: PAY TO PLAY!

We read your feedback forms. So we know that some of you want more comedy. And some of you want more drama. And it’s too close to call. So in proud Chicago tradition, we’ve decided to let you vote on it…for a price.  Click here to learn more.

Who are we?

We are a not-for-profit, all-volunteer group dedicated to creating and nurturing vital community theater in the greater Hyde Park, Chicago neighborhood.  We are always happy to welcome new people who would like to join us in our planning, our activities, and our productions. We emphasize genuine engagement in the project of creating both community and theater.  Active members commit to working on the implementation and the promotion of each HPCP production. (And, by the way, this is a growing website.  We hope it has what you needed today; we look to be able to offer much, much more in the future.  Thanks for visiting.)

Our Productions to Date page is your gateway to records of past productions in pictures and words.  Photos from past productions are up on our Facebook page.  Check them out, and while you’re there, why not say you “like” us?  And if you tweet, you can also follow us on @HPCPlayers
