Not Ready For Prime Time

The actors in the original Not Ready For Primetime Players would become famous for setting in motion the weekly late night television sketch show Saturday night live. Skip ahead 40+ years and our own version of this spirit is coming together at Dartmouth Players Theatre, with the Not Ready For Primetime Dartmouth Players! We hope to be a fun collective of Dartmouth Players members that can spread joy to humans and monkeys everywhere.
