Our Mission

The mission of the Ramona Hillside Players is to promote quality entertainment offering creative live theatre productions; providing a cradle for community theatre in our valley; offering opportunities for growth to actors and directors while preserving our dramatic and comedic heritage and providing mutually satisfying theatre experiences for our members and our audiences.


The Players group began in 1933 as a fundraiser by the Hemet Women’s Club.  Beginning with a series of successful one-acts, they continued with regular productions staged at the Women’s Club House for decades.  In 1941, the group formalized as the Valley Players and in 1960 they purchased their own building.  With the help of the Ramona Pageant Association, the building was moved to the current location.  This gave rise to the new name, Ramona Hillside Players, the name it has gone by for 57 years.

For 76 years, the Ramona Hillside Players have entertained the San Jacinto Valley through comedy, drama and the classics.  Actors, costumers, painters, set builders, stage assistants, lighting techs and other volunteers are always welcome at the Playhouse.

If you have an interest in being involved, please call our reservation line (951) 658-5300 and leave a message. Somebody will get back to you as soon as possible. Or, come to the Playhouse for the auditions and talk to the director about how you can become involved in his or her production.
