Now in their 39th Season, the AD Players are a Christian-based Theater that provide wonderful plays for children and adults. Located in Houston, Texas and founded in 1967 by local actress, Jeannette Clift George, the A. D. Players boasts of being the nation's oldest professional Christian theater. I didn't know this when we went to see "Princess and the Pea" in 2004, but there are six locations in the greater Houston area that you can go to see them.
The photo above is one of my kids with an actress from "Princess and the Pea". They did the play in a small circular room with seats all around and an area where they could go in or out on either side. The children absolutely loved the play, and they only had seating for about 50, which made it nice and cozy and easy to hear. We found out about them through church friends and happened to check them out while we were studying about 'Kings and Queens' with KONOS. It was like a 'God-Smile' for Him to provide a great field-trip for us on a unit study that was particularly hard to plan field-trips for. We live too far away from Houston to attend any of their plays right now, but one day we hope to see them again.
