Egerton Players is a Kent village drama group with our members drawn from the locality, aged from four years old to over ninety!
We perform and rehearse in the village of Egerton, and its locality, situated around six miles west from Ashford, overlooking the Weald of Kent.
Our repertoire includes musicals, revues, comedies and the ever-popular pantomime (oh yes it does!)
Our most recent production presented a couple of one act plays, on 27 & 28 April. Last Christmas, our pantomime
Aladdin and the Pirates, was enjoyed by children and grown-ups (should that be groan-ups?) alike!
Previously, we presented The Railway Children at the start of 2017; so a musical and a pantomime in one year ( a feat to be very proud of, we think!)
In 2016 we performed a Murder Mystery Evening: "Let Sleeping Frogs Die" - , including a full three-course
supper for our audience.
We'll soon be launching a brand-new website with all our news and information about forthcoming Players' events. Watch this space !
Most of our productions are staged in Egerton's beautiful Millennium Village Hall; although in recent years we have braved the English summer with outdoor extravaganza including Shakespeare's magnificent A Midsummer Night's Dream, and the critically acclaimed Darling Buds of May, performed on the set of the original TV series.
We're always looking to welcome new members: whether you're an actor or actress, would like to be part of our musical chorus, or maybe assist in directing and producing. Or perhaps a backstage role is more your thing: helping out with scenery & props, technical operations or makeup & costumes. Egerton Players is a dynamic and lively group, and we thrive on the talent, generosity and (dare we say!) good humour of our members. Make no mistake, putting on a show demands a good deal of work; but the rewards are undeniably unique and we do our very best to make the journey from script to curtain-up enjoyable for all.
