Our Mission

Suwannee Valley Players is the oldest community theatre serving Levy, Dixie and Gilchrist counties (Florida, USA), providing a variety of live theatrical productions for our audiences and participants for over 37 years.

The mission of the Suwannee Valley Players is twofold:

To Bring Quality Live Entertainment to the Tri-County Area

We are committed to providing our community with cultural opportunities. With plays like 1776, Annie, and Oklahoma!, we learn more about our country's history. Plays such as The Wizard of Oz, Twelve Angry Men, The Crucible, Little Women, and The Secret Garden explore great works of literature.

To Educate the Community in the Area of the Fine Arts of the Theatre

We teach many aspects of theatre craft and welcome any member of the community to join, learn and help in our shows. Over the years, we have watched "our kids" develop confidence, poise, and social skills even beyond those of their peers.

Members of the Board

Elizabeth Phillips, President

Elizabeth has served as photographer and archivist for several years as well as a member of the Executive Board. She enjoys music, song writing, creative writing, graphic arts, photography, and traveling to new places. She debuted with SVP in The Sound of Music in 1989 and has enjoyed being involved in many shows since then including her favorite productions Godspell and The Fiddler on the Roof. In recent years, she has ventured into administrative matters including assistant/music director with Godspell and The Adventures of Tom Sawyer, and even actually directing with the beloved classic Little Women and high-energy favorite musical Grease.

Will Rucker, Vice President

Making his debut as Stanley in A Street Car Named Desire, Will has us on the edge of our seats with his intense Gravel-winning roles. He followed with such roles as Prince Richard in The Lion in Winter and Philip in And Then There Were None. Now he steps into SVP leadership, and we welcome him aboard for a new year of growth!

Angie Acevedo, Secretary

Beginning as an ancestor in The Addams Family, Angie was last seen as the navigationally challenged attorney in The Rednecks Bite Back. She and her family have been a valuable addition to our SVP Family onstage as well as behind the scenes. We look forward to many more years as part of SVP's family!

Jerry Crawford, Treasurer

Jerry and his family have become an integral part of our SVP family whether it's onstage to portray Uncle Henry in The Wizard of Oz or behind the scenes in the Boutique or in the operations of SVP. We are looking forward to another great year with the Crawfords!

Sasha Bohon, Board Member

Since debuting at SVP with her role as Denise in Smoke on the Mountain, Sasha has brought a lot of laughter and depth to SVP's stage. With her bachelor's degree in theatre and experience with a Shakespeare troupe, her support behind the scenes as well as onstage has been immeasurable. We are looking forward to her role in SVP leadership this year!

Hailey Horrigan, Board Member

Hailey first started at SVP as the stage manager for the Addams Family Musical. She has also helped backstage for Anne of Green Gables, Much Ado about Nothing, and Dracula. She has continued to develop her leadership skills as assistant director for A Charlie Brown Christmas and this season as director of Robin Hood in early Summer 2020.

Sande Wilcox, Board Member

Sande has been involved at SVP both on and off stage for the last few years. She has played many memorable roles including June Sanders in Smoke on the Mountain and it's sequel, A Sanders Family Christmas, as well as Margaret Sullivan in Dracula allowing her to channel her Irish heritage. She is directing the children's summer workshop, Treasure Island, in Summer 2020.

Becky Gill, Emeritus Board Member

Becky is a retired Navy physician. Since Becky adopted SVP as her family, SVP has never been the same. She has been our greatest fan and supporter, even joining us onstage as Kirby Plank in The Night We Knocked the Critic Dead and the Scarecrow in A Murder of Scarecrows. She was last seen onstage as Queen Victoria in Annie Get Your Gun! When you see the extraordinary renovations at the Chief Theater, be sure and thank her. We are grateful beyond words.
