Hexagon Players - History & Growth

Founded in 1970 by Les Fredericks, who recently retired as Executive Director, Hexagon seeks to provide a consistently high quality community theater experience for both its members and all the residents of the Morris County area.

Hexagon took its name from the shape of the Grace Lutheran Church in Mendham (NJ), its "home base" all these years. While most of our original members were also members of Grace, the current membership rolls show representations of many religious denominations, and a widely spread geographical base.

Our not-for-profit organization has presented more than 80 productions over the past 30 years. We have featured hundreds of talented New Jersey performers in several stage classics (see Previous Productions), all to the delight of our faithful audiences.

Hexagon Players is a member of the Tri-County Community Theatre Association, which represents six community theaters in northern New Jersey (Essex, Morris, and Union counties). Production schedules and auditions notices for these theater groups can be viewed online at www.tricountycta.org.
