Founded in 1987 the Players have just celebrated being 30 years young!
Originally formed with the intention of staging an annual pantomime at the Abbey Theatre, they have diversified over the years and in addition to their ever popular pre-Christmas pantomime now compete at a national level in drama competitions, as well as producing a mid-summer Variety Showcase.
In 2015 their production of the one-act play “Recidivists” won the Lighthorne Drama Festival, resulting in an invitation to compete in the National Drama Festivals Association British All Winners Final where they achieved a very creditable fourth place.
Over the last six years they have reached the semi final of the All England Theatre Festival on five occasions, winning multiple awards on the way for acting, direction, and production.
