Medstead Players History:

The Players date back to 1977 when a few people got together to put on a variety show on the then new Medstead Village Hall stage. Since then the group, who became the Medstead Players, has met to make friends, have fun and entertain. The productions vary enormously and are well received.

There are many jobs and activities undertaken by the group besides acting. We always need people to design and build sets, paint and decorate, make and find the costumes, operate the sound and lights, hunt out props, direct and prompt. There are other activities such as script writing, musical and choreography participation and stage management. A whole host of people are needed to ensure a successful production.

Over the years, we have raised thousands of pounds for various local and national charities. Members have also taken part in neighbouring societies' productions, as well as taking parts as extras for film and TV.

We meet on the first Tuesday of the month. The Players are a friendly group, always keen for new members, so if you feel you would like to get involved, then please contact the Membership Secretary, who would be delighted to tell you all about the Medstead Players and what we do.
