Fox Country Players is a community theatre group based out of Yorkville, Illinois, performing quality plays since 1979. We have a history of providing quality programs for all people and all ages.
We have performed in many venues from the American Legion Hall in Newark to Waubonsee Community College in Sugar Grove. Many of our musicals (1979 to 1997) were performed at the Yorkville Freshman Academy (when it was the High School.) We went north to enjoy the air conditioning at Waubonsee Community College for several summer musicals. Then we came back to Yorkville and produced several shows in the Beecher Center.
The rapid growth in Yorkville and the cry for extra space for Parks and Recreation, as well as senior programs, forced us to relocate once again. We performed in the small theatre at Plano High School for several years, and were fortunate to be able to use the brand new auditorium for 5 events. The Yorkville Board of Education approved our use of Yorkville High School for our Fine Arts Academy in 2010, and we held the Academy there again in July of 2011. We were very excited to be back in Yorkville, and enjoyed doing “Father of the Bride” at the high school as well.
Changes in facilities regulations and fees forced to move again. We performed “A Night of Broadway” at the Community Christian Church north of Yorkville in January of 2012, where we also held our Theatre Arts Academy. We brought back Dinner Theatre, with dinner at St. Joseph Cabinetry and the show at the church.
We moved our Academy to Yorkville Congregational Church for a couple of summers, and continued to do our Broadway Shows there until 2018. We formed a partnership with the Community Education Department of Waubonsee Community College to do our shows and Academy classes at the college. It is wonderful to be able to use a real stage and have comfortable seating for our patrons. Our new venue for “Night of Broadway” is Trinity Methodist Church in Yorkville.
