The Westmoreland Players is a non-profit, amateur theater group located in the Northern Neck of Virginia. It was formed in 1979 in Westmoreland County and moved to its current location, in Callao, Northumberland County, in the fall of 2000. In the summer of 2005, the group was named the Best Community Theatre in Virginia by the readers of Cooperative Living magazine, and “Best Performing Arts Company” in Eastern Virginia by Virginia Living Magazine in 2018 and 2019.

The Westmoreland Players is supported by our volunteers, patrons, donors, audience, advertisers, CoBank, Chesapeake Wealth Management, and the Lula & Mason Cole Charitable Trust. The organization is also supported by the Virginia Commission for the Arts, which receives support from the Virginia General Assembly and the National Endowment for the Arts, a federal agency.
