We are an amateur dramatic group, now celebrating our 42nd year.

We present a pantomime every Spring and plays every Summer and Autumn.

We raise money for local and distant charitable causes.

We are based in the beautiful Peak District of Derbyshire, United Kingdom as well as on YouTube, Facebook and Twitter.

Future Productions

A Midsummer Night’s Dream

(by William Shakespeare; directed by Pat McLoughlin, Rob Hall and Val Robinson)

The disappointment of having to postpone our indoor/outdoor production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream in Summer 2020 is now fully matched and more by the promise that we will be able to perform in Summer 2021.

Watch this space for more details but the current proposal is that we will perform:

- Indoors (’in the round’ to a COVID-safe reduced capacity) in the evenings (7:00pm) of Tuesday 22nd June to Thursday 24th, and then,

- Outdoors in the gardens of Hathersage Hall for matinees (1:30pm) on Saturday 26th June and Sunday 27th and in the evening (7:00pm) on Sunday 27th.

We can offer a wonderful, enthusiastic cast who would love to bring Shakespeare to life for you, whether you are a novice or an expert.

(All of these dates fall after the proposed Stage 4 date for the lifting of limits on social contact. The Players use of the Memorial Hall is with the full agreement of the vaccination centre and has been scheduled to be in no way to the detriment of the vaccination programme.)
