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 event was The Railway Children, A Musical, which played to Egerton on 16, 17 & 18 February this year. Last year (2016) we presented a Murder Mystery Evening: "Let Sleeping Frogs Die" - , including a full three-course supper for our audience. Previously (27 & 28 November, 2015) we staged our Old Time Music Hall tribute.
Aladdin and The PiratesOur next planned production is a Pantomime? Oh yes it is! Please come along on Monday 3 July, 7pm at Egerton Millennium Village Hall to read-through our script and whet your appetite for the thrills, spills and peculiar pleasures of our Pirate-Possessed Panto! Auditions are due to be held a week later: Monday 10 July, again in The Millennium Hall at 7pm. Please see the latest newsletter for more information about the show.

The Railway ChildrenThank you to everyone who came to see The Railway Children, A Musical, performed 16, 17 & 18 February 2017. We hope you enjoyed watching as much as we enjoyed putting it on. Special thanks to all the hardworking cast and crew who made this production a runaway success (choo choo !)
Spectacular Sixties Showdown
Our tribute to the 1960's (a decade that some who were there claim not to remember?) will now be rescheduled in 2018.
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.
