About the Wilbraham United Players
Since 1956, the Wilbraham United Players have been entertaining audiences of all ages with memorable musicals, comedies, and dramas. Based in Wilbraham, this non-profit group brings together people of all generations, cultures and tastes from throughout the Pioneer Valley, people who share a common bond: the love of a good show. The group’s original focus was primarily Gilbert and Sullivan, performing an operetta every other year through 1984. In recent years, WUP’s repertoire has expanded to include such hits as CHICAGO, STEEL MAGNOLIAS and GUYS AND DOLLS. In 2006 WUP celebrated its 50th Anniversary with a new production of “The Mikado”. In our 2016 season – for our 60th anniversary- we returned to our Gilbert and Sullivan roots with a rousing production of THE PIRATES OF PENZANCE! Every season we strive to bring our audiences the best of local theatre in well-loved favorites or new shows. We offered the New England premiere of THE GREAT GATSBY in 2012 and in 2014 presented the Western Mass premiere of THE LIGHT IN THE PIAZZA.
