Faculty Players

In 1933 the winding down and then disbanding of the student dramatic club (Tennessee Players) spawned a new troupe: the Faculty Players. This company of university teachers, staff, and their spouses brought an annual series of full-length plays to Knoxville audiences from 1933 to 1942, at which time a fall season of one-act plays given in a theatre-in-the-round configuration was necessary because of the loss of members to World War II. The final meeting of the group was February 24, 1943.
