The Carol Players drama group was formed in Labrador West in 1964. It’s been an active member of the Newfoundland and Labrador Drama Society ever since.
The group’s membership has remained relatively constant throughout the years and, in the past few years, the groups has added a youth component called Carol Players Kids.
The group stages two variety shows and two full-length plays annually. One of the plays involves many Carol Players Kids” and is staged in early December. The other play is the one taken annually to Newfoundland and Labrador Drama Festival.
The group has travelled to countless provincial festivals and as far away as Ireland for the Dundalk International Maytime Festival. It has also partnered with the CBC and local Community Choir for a live reading of The Christmas Carol, with the entire proceeds going to the local food bank.
