A sincere thank you to the Saluda community for supporting our recent production. The four sold-out performances of “Annie” were a special delight and memorable experience for the teens and children involved. The Young Acting Krew, supported by the talented adult Mountain Page Players, gave it their all after months of rehearsal under the direction of Saluda’s own, Kersten McGeary.
Our little theater continues to grow due to the extraordinary efforts of the MPT Board of Directors, headed by Richard Rutherford, and an enthusiastic team of volunteers. Our mission statement “Mountain Page Theater shall exist for the youth of the community by building and maintaining a place for the dignity of self-discovery through the performing arts” is the driving force of this endeavor.
Thanks to John L. Pace, we now have a circular driveway to enter and exit the grounds and an outdoor shelter, constructed by David Berry and Jim Beyer, which will enhance outdoor events, intermissions, and concession abilities. Thanks to Hilda Pace, Beth Rutherford and Deborah Hahn, our landscape is flourishing with newly planted shrubs, wildflowers, and perennials.
The MPT Summer Schedule is an invitation to the community this year. We invite you to come for a visit and to know you are welcome. We encourage anyone with an interest in the performing arts to join the Mountain Page Players or the Young Acting Krew. Those who volunteer are treasured and patrons are acknowledged in a multitude of ways. We are only 2.3 miles from downtown Saluda following Greenville Street to 1303 Mountain Page Road (same road).
Mountain Page Players meet Mondays 5:00–7:00
