Famous PEOPLE Players have the Power to Amaze and the Power to Inspire
FPP brought integration to the forefront of the world for people with disabilities. This amazing black light theatre company, the players are dressed from head to toe in black jumpsuits making them in invisible on stage. They manipulate life size puppets of famous people in bright fluorescent colours,under ultraviolet lights which makes the props and puppets glow in the dark. When audiences found out who they were they said “I didn’t know they were capable of such wonderful things.”
Like a ripple effect many countries around the world watched with great interest and followed in the footsteps of a company that Dares to Dream. Thus Integration into society normalized the people who were once hidden from society.
It was Famous PEOPLE Players who broke down the barriers.
One person can make a difference but it is a team that makes the miracle.
Diane Dupuy was that one person who made the difference and through her dedication and passion she continues to lead FPP to international success. It was the players who were hidden rom society that made the miracle happen. Through music and their colors in the dark they continue to light up the stage and inspire people to achieve more.
What you see is sensational what you don’t see is inspirational. New York Times.
Today they operate a Dine & Dream theatre
About the Founder

Labeled a slow learner and failing in school. . she gave up on even trying. In her early twenties she volunteered at the Orillia Institution (Ontario Canada) where people with mental diabilities were hidden. She was horrified. This was when the lightning struck and Diane working with puppets at the time, created FPP. Her Players learned more in the wings of the stage when they discovered their imagination. They grew into confident, independent members of society.
