Art, in all its forms, reflects the soul of a community.  Over the past year, our Century House community has had to adjust to a new reality, and Century House Players has faced this challenge with grit and determination.

Using the most recent technical know-how, Century House Players has been able to continue its programming using an online format which has allowed us to keep in touch with our wonderful audience.

While we are waiting to return to live performances, we would like to invite Century House members to join our team of actors and technicians. No acting experience is required. We promise you a warm welcome, an exciting challenge and the opportunity to be part of a fun-loving, creative team.

We are sending a very special invitation to Men.  Additional male actors on our team will allow us to consider a greater range of plays. We’re looking forward to meeting you and working with you.

In the Spirit of the Holidays

Dec. 2020–We can’t get together as we’d like, so the Century House Players decided to put together some personal memories and readings to create a holiday bubble to share with everyone. 

What’s on TV?

In December, we recorded “What’s on TV?” in which a viewer is trying to watch four totally different television shows that are airing at the same time. Unfortunately our performance rights on this piece have expired, so we can’t show it to you.

Grace O’Malley, the Irish Pirate

In November 2020 our member Eileen Mackenzie did a solo Irish-accented presentation of “Grace O’Malley the Irish Pirate.” It’s a tale she wrote as a version of a true story about a wild Irish woman who was a wife, a mother, a pirate, a gambler, a soldier, and leader of men. Grace lived in the 16th century when Queen Elizabeth was conquering Ireland. The highlight of her story is when she travels to England to plead her case to Queen Elizabeth.

Directed by Marilyn Remus, Eileen now gives us the pleasure of her delightful reading of this interesting true story.
Marilyn’s intro will give some more details. BONUS: Talk New West has a behind-the-scenes interview with Eileen abotu this show.

Quarantine Humour

In fall 2020, working entirely from their homes using Zoom, the Players rehearsed and recorded “Quarantine Humour,” a set of eight skits on Zoom.

Those Were the Days

A celebration of Century House’s 60th Anniversary, June 1 & 2, 2018. Yes, those WERE the days, when we could get together .

  1. Great job Eileen! Loved the accent. Thank you for telling us about such a remarkable woman at this point in time when most women had no power.
