Since 2000, the GACCI Players have been staging live theatrical performances to the delight of the Gloucester community. Born out of GACCI’s long-running Shakespeare Festival, founding members, Tim Wescott, Chris Steele and Rod Burrows began the group as a comedic addition to the well-known festival and it has since continued to evolve. The players are volunteer members of the community with a diverse range of performance experience from professional to novice. Some Players have been part of one-off productions, some part of several, while others have been involved since the beginning. The group is always looking for new members to assist in productions with anything from behind the scenes work to on-stage performance.
