Welcome to our site
E.C.H.O. Players Village Theatre is a non-profit society of dedicated members of the community. Community is what E.C.H.O. Players is all about. Relying upon the talents, creative energy and generosity of individuals and businesses we have been bringing the live theatre experience to the Oceanside area for for over 40 years.
Whether you wish to share the experience from the comfort of your seat in the Village Theatre (home to E.C.H.O. Players since 1974), from the footlights of the stage or from behind the scenes, you will find yourself welcomed into a community of patrons, fellow performers, artists, writers, set designers, and volunteers of every description.
OUR 2018/19 SEASON
Want a peek at our complete upcoming season?
Our Fall 2018 Schedule!
Our Spring season has ended but we will be back in the Fall with the following productions:
Lotty Wilton, stifled and dissatisfied with her life, spots an advertisement in the Times for a month’s let in a small Italian castle that promises “wisteria and sunshine”.
Seeing her chance to escape dreary England and regenerate her life, she joins forces with an acquaintance Rose Arnott, an elderly and formidable Mrs. Graves and a troubled society beauty Lady Caroline. Enchanted April, as entertaining, enchanting and refreshing as a spring spent in the Italian countryside, makes for a charming evening out

"Peter Pan" is the classic story of the mischievous little boy who flies and refuses to grow up, preferring, instead, to live in mysterious Neverland, sharing adventures with the lost boys, pirates, fairies, tick-tocking crocodiles and, occasionally, real children. Our family- orientated musical includes song, dance and action that will enthrall and engage every child from five to one hundred and five.
