Hi, welcome to our website. We are the Culcheth Players, a small community drama society based out of the Culcheth Sports Club (commonly known as “The Daten”), in the Cheshire village of Culcheth.
We are pleased you dropped by and hope you find this site useful. On it you will find information about our performances, past and present, including how you can obtain tickets and also how you can get involved yourself should you so wish (don’t be shy, we love new members).
And if you can’t find the information you are looking for, or just to say hello, drop us a message via the Contact Us page.
Did you know?.. The Culcheth Players was founded way back in 1958, meaning:
2018 will be the Culcheth Players’ 60th anniversary year.
You can read more about the group’s history on the About Us page.
Our Current Activities
We generally stage three productions each year, two comedy or drama plays around May/June and September/October, and an annual pantomime late January or early February.
Our previous two plays “What I did at School today” by John Mee and “The Loft” by James P. Brosnahan, were fun to perform and were well received by our audience.
We are now hard at work rehearsing for our upcoming Pantomime Aladdin, which we will be performing in February.
Have you ever fancied yourself as a pantomime dame? Our panto cast is all selected for this year, but we love to welcome new members. For more info on what opportunities there are to get involved in our activities, hop on over to the Get Involved page.
A message from the club secretary
We at Culcheth Players are always happy to welcome people to our little group. Whether it be budding actors and actresses, the willing stage hand or audience member.
Each rehearsal brings together a group of friendly faces of all ages who come to one focal point bringing with us our skills and enthusiasm to put on a show that is worthy of our audience members. Sometimes our shows can be full of fun and laughter (Like our annual Pantos) or they can be more sombre and thought provoking. But one thing is certain, every show is the final result of approximately 4 months of dedication and hard work by each and every group member in order to give the best performance we can.
So please why not come and join us?… regardless of whether you wish to join as a group member, offer to help leaflet dropping or simply wish to come along to watch one of our shows I’m sure that you’ll find yourself being made to feel truly welcome by those of us you meet.
