The Oswego Players was founded as part of the "Little Theater Movement" in 1938 by the late Oswego High School Drama Director Frances Marion Brown. Since then the group has produced several productions a year at first using borrowed or rented space, then later renovating the old commissary building at Fort Ontario into their own theater space. That space named after the organization's founder now presents up to six shows a year including dramas, mysteries, comedies, musicals, and children's theater. The new board hopes to keep this momentum going for another 80 years.
