The Johnson County Community Foundation recently awarded a $2500 grant to the Main Street Players to help support their organization and their community outreach programs. The Main Street Players is a local community theatre housed at the Historic SIPP Theater in Paintsville, KY.
“The Johnson County Community Foundation is committed to seeing our community thrive as
an economic and artistic hub, and supporting organizations like the Main Street Players
matches perfectly with these goals,” said Daffiny Trimble, Johnson County Community
Foundation Chair. “The work that the Main Street Players do is so important to our community
and our region, and we are thrilled to be able to support these efforts and watch them continue
to expand and grow.”
The Main Street Players have spent the last decade bringing quality theatrical productions to the
mountains, staging productions of Annie Jr., Seussical The Musical, The Best Christmas Pageant
Ever, The Wizard of Oz, Dorothy in Wonderland, Clue: The Musical, and many more. Through their
educational outreach programs, they host theatre workshops and summer theatre camps. With
these opportunities, the community theatre has become an outlet for many people in the region
to display their talents and abilities.
