Our History – King’s Players Community Theatre When the Rubinow family enrolled their two teens at Homeschool Plus (HSP) in 2019, Carrie Rubinow had no idea that the opportunity to teach an afternoon Theater Improv class in exchange for her kids’ tuition would grow into the exciting adventure God had planned! When approached to produce and direct Narnia The Musical for Homeschool Plus, she initially declined the offer. When asked the next year to once again consider Narnia, this time during the pandemic, she accepted the challenge. Following as God was leading and with her husband's blessing, Carrie sensed this was an excellent time to offer a production, since many other shows were being cancelled during the worst of the COVID outbreak. Not to be thwarted in His purposes, God made a way in the wilderness. Lives were changed and a true "Christian Community Theatre" was envisioned.
During a dark and isolating time in our history, the community we formed was a refreshing surprise, support, and encouragement to us all.
In June 2021, Carrie founded a Facebook support group, Arts with Integrity, in gratitude and response to the community that had rallied around the HSP Theater Department. In recognition of what was already happening, this network began to meet together in person, providing a resource and a forum to announce needs, auditions, performances, and growing opportunities to build relationships with one another.
In the Spring of 2022, the HSP theatre showcased Lionel Bart's Oliver! With the vision to bring this ever growing unity and collaborative spirit to the community, and with the blessing of Homeschool Plus’s leadership, King's Players Community Theatre was envisioned! Over the next year, a group of seven board members along with countless volunteers worked to make this dream their own. The vision, the mission, and the organization became something more! Together we have all become King’s Players Community Theatre, envisioned by the Rubinows, poured into by countless volunteers for countless hours, and breathed into by the leading and power of God!
We are excited to introduce and welcome you to this amazing ministry…a natural progression, bathed in prayer, and a powerful testimony to all that God has done... ~ and will do ~ in the days to come!
