The Kittochtinny Players (KP) are the Dramatics Society of Wilson
College. Founded in 1930 (though Wilson College had a Dramatics Society
before that,) the college has a rich tradition of theater, including
past productions of
The Learned Ladies
(1983). Despite this tradition, though, the club fell into decline and several years went by with no productions at all.
in 2002 and now one of the largest groups on campus, the KP is mostly
known for their annual spring production. KP affords students not only
the opportunity to act, but also to design costumes, sets and scenery,
lighting, and even to direct and write their own plays for production!
Recent KP shows have included:
The All-American Kumquats
The KP is also famous—or, as some might say, infamous—for
their comedy-improv troupe, The All-American Kumquats. This hilarious group of Wilson students and staff interacts with the audience in playing various comedy games and enacting numerous zany routines! A guaranteed crowd-pleaser, the troupe has performed for numerous campus and community groups and is available for a modest fee. You can always
catch the Kumquats on Arts Day, when the troupe performs gratis for the Wilson Community. You can look for other times and dates of improv shows here.
