Players Theatre, Anfield Rd
Players Theatre is a friendly community theatre based about nine miles south of Manchester in Cheadle Hulme. Established in the 1920s by a band of friends, the society has grown and grown over the years. Our home now is a 104 seat raked auditorium with disabled facilities (including a loop system). We have a fully licensed bar, coffee lounge, kitchen facilities and a car park.
We stage four main productions in the season and our youth theatre perform two plays in the season. We also take part in local festivals. Our social calendar is both full and diverse. Non-members are welcome to attend any of the social events, though being a member brings cheaper admission and in some cases FREE admission!
Players are always looking to welcome new members. Whatever your interest, be it on stage or backstage, front of house or bar, set design or construction, wardrobe or make-up, theatre maintenance or catering, lighting or sound, there really is something for everyone. It really isn’t all about acting!
Our wardrobe department hire out costumes to the general public. For further information and to book an appointment, please email info [at] playersdramatic [dot] co [dot] uk.
