A non-profit organization, providing theater entertainment to the local community. The James McCabe Theater, built in 1915, is the only remaining commercial structure from Valrico's own small land boom at the turn of the century. Originally built to house the Valrico Civic Club, it was erected by the membership to be a home for the group and an attractive focal point for the community.
By the middle of the twentieth century the structure was home to a Woman's Club. In the late 1970's the building was repossessed by Hillsborough County, and The Village Players gained permission to use the building for theatrical productions. In the fall of 1994, the property was deeded to The Village Players and soon after the building was designated a historic landmark. After the passing of one of the founders and former president of The Village Players, the building was renamed in honor of James McCabe.
The Village Players of The James McCabe Theater are funded and supported solely by the generosity and enthusiasm of our surrounding community. In addition to fulfilling our role as both a theatrical center and a venue for the arts here in the Brandon/Valrico area, we are always striving to preserve our historic landmark building. As of 2013, we have replaced the roof, installed a new air handler for the AC, repaired the kitchen floor along with new lenolium and installed (4) four new ceiling fans. With the efforts of Gail Pierce and the generosity of the community we will contine to see
