About The Foundation

The Players Foundation for Theatre Education was established to foster an understanding and appreciation of American Theatre, utilizing the history of The Players and its illustrious members who have contributed to that legacy. The Players Foundation for Theatre Education is dedicated to the preservation of a unique collection of Theatre History in a single location designated by the Department of the Interior as a National Historic Landmark. In addition to the restoration of its extensive art collection, The Foundation is also responsible for the care of the rare books and manuscript letters, theatrical artifacts, costumes, playbills, photographs and ephemera as well as the historic Booth room.
