Dates of existence



The Players' Club was founded at the University of British Columbia in 1915 by Frederic Wood who served as honourary president and director of all plays staged from 1916 to 1931. The objective of the organization was to provide training in the theatre arts for UBC students. Each spring and fall, the club performed one act plays throughout the province. Such tours contributed significantly to the cultural life of B.C. and helped integrate the activities of the university with the outlying areas of the province. The Players' Club disbanded in 1966 following the institution of the Department of Theatre at UBC - however, it was revived in the 1990s.
