Chichester Players is the local amateur dramatic society for Chichester and the surrounding areas. It has a large body of members, ranging from older children and teenagers to those in their 80s. It also caters for an equally wide variety of abilities, with a number of talented and experienced performers as well as those who rely more on enthusiasm than any acting skill.
The Players put on three plays a year, in Spring, in early Summer and at Christmas, and hold rehearsals on Mondays and Thursdays on most weeks between September and June; since 2013 a small-scale, and sometimes experimental, production has also been mounted in late summer/early autumn.
New members are always very welcome, whether they have years of theatrical experience or none at all; there is always room for those who prefer to help off stage, with set & costume design, set construction, dressmaking, programme selling, poster design, stage management and a host of other necessary, but often unglamorous tasks. Anyone interested should contact the Membership secretary, Pammi Haylett by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We are lucky enough to have an extensive wardrobe from which costumes can be hired at reasonable rates. Those interested should contact Gillian Montgomery on 01243 262687.
Chichester Players is a member of NODA, the National Operatic and Dramatic Association.
