The John Rolfe Players preformed in Chester and Chesterfield from the 1950s to the late 1970s. The force behind the group was Dottie and her husband Larry Armstrong. The performance poster above was typical for the troupe. Elizabeth Matthews, one of the original Chesterfield Center for the Arts supporters, said the John Rolfe Players sparked the idea of a playhouse approximately 60 years ago. The Armstrongs would be proud of the development of the Arts Center as the building is on the cusp of being built.
