Who We Are

"The arts aren't just part of our nation, they are the heart of our nation."
-First Lady Michelle Obama


We are fortunate that Clocktower Players is staffed by a diverse and dedicated group of theater professionals, and is supported by a volunteer corps of Clocktower students, parents, and friends.

Our staff and volunteer team has been led by Cagle McDonald, the Artistic and Executive Director of Clocktower Players since 2006.  As Artistic Director, she has championed diversity on the Irvington Town Hall stage, and produced shows that highlight the breadth of the human experience, such as Purlie, In the Heights, Rent, La Cage Aux Folles and Spring Awakening.


From the Artistic & Executive Director

It is remarkable to think of the contributions Clocktower Players has made to the Hudson Valley region over the past 40 years.  By encouraging participation in and appreciation for theater and ensuring accessibility to the performing arts, we have flourished into an exciting, creative home for performers and theater lovers of all ages - a cozy hub of creativity and self-expression.

The most important aspect of what we do at Clocktower is not our long history, our accolades, or the programs we have developed; what s most important is the magic that takes place every single day by making a positive difference in the lives of our kids and our community.  You understand that magic.  You have seen it and felt it in the lives we have fulfilled.

Now is the time to expand our vision for the future and transform the impact of Clocktower Players.  We ask you to take the next step with us.  join us in our mission of providing exciting, diverse, affordable programs and productions for our kids and our community.  Share our new initiatives filled with new adventures, new friendships, and our strong commitment to all those who benefit from a dose of theater in their lives.
