Woodchurch Players History

A Matter of Live and Death - 2016The Players’ reputation for colourful and memorable pantomimes is well established – so much so that they received an award for ‘Treasure Island‘ (2015) from the National Operatic and Dramatic Society, who support and promote amateur theatre across the country.

The Players are equally ambitious when it comes to producing plays, which are performed twice a year. These have ranged from ‘Charley’s Aunt‘ to ‘Billy Liar‘; ‘The Accrington Pals‘ to ‘She Stoops to Conquer‘. More recently, the Players joined the Kent Drama Association and now participate in their Full Length Play Festival. This has resulted in the Players winning awards for the technical achievement of their production of ‘A Matter of Life and Death‘ (2015). Ultimately, this has raised the Players’ profile on a wider scale and has enabled closer links with neighbouring amateur dramatic groups.

We support local community events and provide social evenings for our members, many of whom work backstage and front of house as well as appear on stage! There is something for everyone to contribute to and enjoy and we will be very happy to welcome you!
