The Owosso Community Players, at the Lebowsky Center, have a rich history that carries on the legacy of Joseph Lebowsky who opened The Capitol Theater in 1926 as a “boon to the neighborhood.” From humble beginnings in the 1930s, to the eventual founding of a regular theatre group in the 1950s, over 350 shows have been performed through the stages of our history welcoming actors of all ages.
The Owosso Community Players continue to rebound and grow from the devastating fire in 2007, reopening in 2014. Dedicated to its mission to Educate, Entertain, and Enrich lives by providing a quality performing arts experience, the Owosso Community Players at the Lebowsky Center, produce 4 musicals and 3 plays each season, as well as a children’s summer workshop and/or Jr. Show. In addition, they bring in outside artists to expand the cultural offerings to the community and beyond. OCP, as a nonprofit organization, is honored to play a part in the cultural and economic growth of Owosso.
