University Players

The Art of Listening

The George Fox University Players continue a 30-year tradition of bringing thought-provoking drama to schools, churches and prisons. Through the years, this touring company of young men and women has presented a wide variety of music and drama to hundreds. Each program is designed to benefit a specific audience, whether it is for elementary-school children, a youth group, or an entire church congregation.

This year, the George Fox University Players explore “The Art of Listening.” Using masks, movement and storytelling, we embody what it means to listen well to others, to ourselves, and to the world around us.

Using children’s books, which are far more than books for children, we bring to life what makes a
good listener and how we can stand alongside one another in challenging times. We champion the importance of listening t
o – and understanding – our bodies and minds, especially when dealing with anxiety. And we celebrate listening to nature and cultivating a deep relationship with the natural world.

Come imagine with us how our lives, our communities and our world can be changed through the power of active listening.

Each program is designed to benefit a specific audience, whether it is for elementary school children, a youth group, or an entire church congregation.

The stories told by the George Fox University Players are original scripts created by the students and the director. Simple props, costumes, and instruments are used to enhance the presentations.
