The mission of the Ramona Hillside Players is to promote quality entertainment offering creative live theatre productions; providing a cradle for community theatre in our valley; offering opportunities for growth to actors and directors while preserving our dramatic and comedic heritage and providing mutually satisfying theatre experiences for our members and our audiences.
The Players group began in 1933 as a fundraiser by the Hemet Women’s Club. Beginning with a series of successful one-acts, they continued with regular productions staged at the Women’s Club House for decades. In 1941, the group formalized as the Valley Players and in 1960 they purchased their own building. With the help of the Ramona Pageant Association, the building was moved to the current location. This gave rise to the new name, Ramona Hillside Players, the name it has gone by for 58 years.
For 77 years, the Ramona Hillside Players have entertained the San Jacinto Valley through comedy, drama and the classics. Actors, costumers, painters, set builders, stage assistants, lighting techs and other volunteers are always welcome at the Playhouse.
