Welcome from the Chairman

Welcome to the St. John's Players website. Here you will find all the news about our current and future projects, and a look back at our past. We are one of the oldest drama groups in the Cambridge area. Formed in 1947, we perform a wide variety of plays three times a year, including comedies, thrillers, modern-day and costume dramas. We are currently working on our 243rd production, Abigail's Party, which will be performed in February. We are already planning our future productions !

Obviously, a great deal of effort and teamwork is required in order to produce such a quantity of plays each year, and we are always looking for new members of all ages, whether they have experience in amateur dramatics or not. We rehearse twice a week, on Mondays and Wednesdays, from 7.30pm, at the Fulbourn Centre, Home End, Fulbourn. The set is constructed and worked on during rehearsals by our members, and, during play week, the hall has to be prepared for our audience. Members also act as Front of House staff, selling programmes, directing people to their seats, and taking orders for refreshments to be served during the interval. And, of course, we are always looking for new actors for our varied productions.

As well as our actors, we consider our audience to be very important and provide a theatre club that gives advanced notice of ticket sales and organises social events. We also organise other social activities for our members - for instance, we have a Members’ Dinner, and, in conjunction with our thriving Theatre Club, we organise social evenings, such as Fish & Chip Quiz Nights and the Theatre Club Christmas Dinner, with entertainment. 

We are proud of our history. The group's archive holds photos and programmes from nearly all of our productions over the years. On this site you can read a little of the group's history and view some photos from our archive.

If you would like to join our friendly club, whether in an acting capacity or backstage, come along to any rehearsal on a Monday or Wednesday and we will be delighted to see you. Alternatively, please email me. If you know of a friend who may be interested in joining, we would appreciate you telling them about us. Whether we speak to you first or see you at the hall, we look forward to you joining us.
