Biographical history

Residents of the village of Grindrod in the North Okanagan have been presenting dramatic productions since the end of World War I. From the 1920s through the 1940s productions were performed in Grindrod, then taken on the road to the Shuswap or to Enderby. In the 1950s the Grindrod Drama Club was formed, and plays were performed annually in the Grindrod School by village residents and students. In 1968, following a successful performance of 'Charley's Aunt' sponsored by the Grindrod Recreation Commission, the Grindrod Players Club was officially organized and a bank account opened in the Grindrod Credit Union. The Players generally perform slap-stick comedy, farce, or melodrama. According to long-time player Kathy Halksworth, their prerequisite for choosing a play is "anything for a laugh" but they always promise to "keep it clean". Annual spring productions are held in the Grindrod School to full houses. Any proceeds from the plays were donated to Grindrod School. Since 1978 the Players have sponsored a scholarship for A.L. Fortune Secondary School graduate students involved in theatre or the fine arts.
