NANTWICH PLAYERS was founded in 1927 as Nantwich Play-Reading Circle and is a registered charity. Their main activities are producing seven plays a year (one always staged by the Youth Theatre) and holding regular Tuesday social events.
Each play has a different director, and every single play involves new members in one role or another. They are always looking for new members so if you can, or would like to, act, paint, sew, design, serve behind the bar or many other activities that take place off-stage, get in touch. This is a hobby which can take a lot or a little of your time. Why not give it a try?
The theatre seats 82 people all with a good view of the stage. Five plays and a Youth Theatre production
each year means that the building is in almost constant use. Rehearsals are held on Mondays and Thursdays for the main productions, while the Youth Theatre rehearse and hold workshops during their Friday meetings.
Social events take place on Tuesdays. Five Newsletters are sent out each year to Members and Friends.
The Youth Theatre has its own programme of events including theatre workshops and the opportunity to take part in the senior productions.
Tickets are sold through Nantwich Town Council Tourist Information Centre in the Civic Hall in Beam Street, Nantwich
three weeks before each production opens. Actual dates are given on the Nantwich Players web site.
Call in person or ring 01270 600727 with your debit or credit card. Tickets will be held at the Theatre on the day of performance if you cannot collect them earlier.
