Creative dramatics is extremely beneficial as it serves to broaden and enrich the lives of young people by sharpening their talents, increasing self-confidence, communication skills, and promoting a sense of cooperation and teamwork. The Augusta Players fosters the artistic and creative development of young people through its active Jr Players (age 6 to 19.)

Through this vibrant and innovative program, children and teenagers are motivated by the desire to have fun in an atmosphere that is both comfortable and stimulating. We always have a fun-filled season planned with a variety of productions promising to appeal to young people of all ages!

Participation is encouraged through open auditions. For more information about how to become involved please call 706-826-4707 or email us at


THE GRUNCH Presented by the Augusta Jr Players, Dec. 3-4, 2021

✩  WINNER! 2012 Children’s Musical Theatre Festival, NYC  ✩

Inspired by “The Grinch Who Stole Christmas”, The Grunch tells the story of Rudy Grunch, a grumpy 6th grader who always feels like an outsider. When the entire school gets excited about the annual school musical, he comes up with a perfect plan to ruin it for everyone; he’ll steal the sets, costumes and lights the night before it opens. But will the spirit of theatre prevail?
