Wisconsin's First Theatre Organization!
Our purpose is to give all students the opportunity to explore every aspect of theatre.
The Carroll Players is the first active student theater organization in Wisconsin, founded in 1896 when professor May Nickell Rankin directed a group of students in a production of Richelieu as part of Commencement weekend activities. The group furthers the artistic, academic and educational concerns of the Theatre & Arts Management program, recognizes outstanding alumni and encourages fellowship and growth among members through social and educational activities.
