About DCP

Dexter Community Players is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization. Since founding in 1981, DCP has brought more than 50 productions to the Dexter community throughout the years.

DCP is strictly a volunteer organization; it is a non-profit, community-based theater group that strives to present an authentic theater experience to actors, production staff, members, and audiences.

Our membership hosts a wide variety of ages, skills sets, levels of experience, and areas of interest. While our talented cast is highlighted on stage, our entire membership includes those interested in building, painting, sewing, advertising, and much more!

Most shows take place in one of two venues:

  • The Dexter Center for the Performing Arts (CPA) is a new space that brought a large capacity theater to the Dexter Community. It is attached to the Dexter High School.
  • Copeland Auditorium was the original theater in the Dexter School System. Long ago it served many functions, along with that of a theater. In 1999, the space was renovated into an amazing black box and a dedicated theater space.

Our Constitution, By-Laws, and other policies are available here.
