Who we are:

Founded in 1999 as the Children’s Theatre Company of South Dakota (CTCSD) and becoming Dakota Players in 2010, Dakota Players addresses two serious voids in the arts in South Dakota. First, DP provides access to quality theatre experiences and professional theatre artists for children, targeting rural Midwestern communities; and secondly the company provides professional work opportunities in South Dakota for theatre artists.

It is our goal to teach and delight children, taking them to that wonderful place where magic, imagination, and reality come together. We teach theatre education to students starting in kindergarten and continuing through high school and beyond. All our touring scripts are original, and all musical productions are written and designed by Midwestern artists.

What we do:

  • The touring production of SPACE SCHOOL MUSICAL
  • BHP Jr. Camps, encouraging creativity and exploration while giving students the opportunity to see the world through the diverse lens of the performing arts.
  • And More!
