The H.A.D.L.E.Y. Players are formed.

H.A.D.L.E.Y. Players program

*The H.A.D.L.E.Y. Players is celebrated on this date in 1979. The H.A.D.L.E.Y. Players was founded and established by actress Gertrude Jeannette, a Broadway and film productions veteran.

Part of the Harlem Artist Development League Especially for You, they present three major Equity Showcase plays annually. Their purpose is to present professional theatrical productions and provide theater artists such as actors, playwrights, and craftspeople in lighting and stage design (who need to be regularly employed) with an opportunity to sharpen their crafts. Prices are affordable for the community, and new talent is developed in their workshops.

The Players can decide for those who cannot pay to see its productions free of charge. H.A.D.L.E.Y. productions are both informative and entertaining for the whole family. Their address is 647 St. Nicholas Avenue, Harlem School of the Arts Theatre (at 142nd Street), New York, N.Y. 10030, 212-368-9314.
