In 1984, British born actress Emma Stevens formed the «Brome Lake Amateurs», filling a cultural void in the Eastern Townships town of Knowlton, Quebec. The three one-act plays which were produced that season met with great success and the enthusiastic group continued performing for the next three years in the Oddfellows’ Hall, the Lakeview Hotel, Knowlton Academy, Glen Mountain, and in tents at the Lions’ Club Park. A theatre was built in 1988 which became the home of Theatre Lac Brome, a professional theatre company, with Emma Stevens as its original artistic director. The amateur group continued to present plays during the winter season under the direction of Emma, and Danny McAuley. In 1990 the group registered itself as a non-profit organization under the name of KNOWLTON PLAYERS and elected an executive committee to administer its activities. KNOWLTON PLAYERS is dedicated to presenting family-oriented productions, and we are sustained by the commitment of our members and the support of our audiences.
