Walsh University Archives and Special Collections

The Walsh Theater Program Collection

The Genesius Players officially formed in the fall of 1977 with the help of Dr. David Baxter, to bring dramatic experiences to the Walsh University community. Their first official production under the name Genesius was When You Comin' Back Red Ryder? and it was held April 20-22, 1978 in the Science Auditorium. Before being called the Genesius Players, the name Blue Carpet Players was used from 1972-1978. The Players are named after St. Genesius, the patron saint of actors and actor himself, who was beheaded when he would not worship pagan gods in the third century A.D.
