About Our Venue

Originally founded as a gypsy theater  in 1980, Old Fort Players put on our first show in 1981, "Come Blow Your Horn.".  In 1993, we made our home at 725 Avenue G, Fort Madison, Iowa, where our first production was ”Rumors“. Our cozy theater space seats 92 comfortably without a bad seat in the house.  Equipped with a 6 foot movie screen and projector, we are a great place to give your Powerpoint or video  presentation.

Young Fort Players Summer Theater Program

The Young Fort Players Summer Theater Program are children ages 10-14. 


This summer YFP's will be performing The Rules of Comedy by Peter Bloedel. 


Produced by special arrangement with Playscripts, Inc. (www.playscripts.com)

 
The audience is given a side-splitting lesson in what's funny and what's not funny. In order to prove that the Rules of Comedy work, they are hilariously inserted into one of the most popular tragedies of all time: William Shakespeare's Hamlet. The Rules of Comedy is a physical comedy "blow-out" with an interesting twist that showcases the cast's ability to handle tragic drama, as well. Playing by the rules has never been so much fun.


Tickets are $8 for Adults and $5 for students (5-17). 


Tickets will be available online. 

7:30 pm on Friday & Saturday night. - 2 pm Sunday Matinee

725 Ave G, Fort Madison, Ia 52627
