Your Guide to the Spectacular Shows by the Westmoreland Players

Get your hands ready for a round of applause if you plan to check out a performance by the Westmoreland Players! This talented bunch of amateur actors and volunteers provide the Northern Neck with some exceptional entertainment throughout the year. Don’t miss out on all the fun! Read through our blog and prepare yourself for a memorable evening with your friends, family, or special someone.

Who Are the Westmoreland Players?

The Westmoreland Players are members of an amateur acting community that was formed over 40 years ago in 1979. Although the Westmoreland Players Theatre is in Callao, VA, it was once in Westmoreland County which is where it got its name. And, it’s lucky for us that it moved because now our guests at the Hope and Glory Inn can enjoy their performances after a short drive. (You can check out the Lancaster Players Playhouse nearby, too!)

Catch a Show

Just like our own inn and vineyard in Irvington, Virginia, the Westmoreland Players have received consistent acclaim and recognition from the media. In fact, Virginia Living magazine readers voted them the Best Performing Arts Community in Eastern Virginia for 2018 and 2019. Feel free to watch one of their upcoming performances to see what makes them so award-worthy two years in a row. From comedy to drama and suspense, they have something for everyone!


If you feel inspired to get involved with the Westmoreland Players, you’re more than welcome to do so! They’re always looking for new volunteers to help with construction and behind-the-scenes projects as well as talented actors to shine on stage. You don’t even need any prior experience!

Purchase Tickets

Are you ready to witness the Westmoreland Players in action? Take this opportunity to buy tickets online and make it happen! There are several different options on their website, including season passes and patron tickets that come with exclusive benefits. If you’re only in town for a weekend getaway at our inn, we recommend that you purchase individual tickets for the performance of your choice.

Local tip: While seats are typically first-come, first-serve, you can call the theater ahead of time, and they will try to accommodate your seating preferences.
