Calling all singers, dancers, actors, poets, comedians, musicians, soloists, duos, trios, quartets and more... St Stephens Players invite you to take to the stage as part of our ONE NIGHT ONLY variety showcase on SATURDAY 26TH JUNE. We have already started putting together a brilliant line-up for the evening, including some acts featured in this year's 'Saturday Night Cabin Fever' online talent contest, but there's plenty of room for more local talent to step into the limelight!
St Stephens Community Centre will be available for people to rehearse their acts and discuss any tech requirements with the committee TUESDAY 22ND JUNE and THURSDAY 24TH JUNE from 7.30PM. A full dress run of the evening's acts is scheduled for the Saturday afternoon of show day, time to be confirmed.
If you’re interested in being part of this fantastic evening of entertainment or would simply like to know more, don’t hesitate to contact us via our official Facebook page or email: firstname.lastname@example.org
St Stephens Players are delighted to bring the fairest of all fairytales to our little community hall this December! Written by the Players' own John Forman, this year's pantomime is exactly what the doctor ordered!
What would Christmastime be without singing forest creatures, poisoned fruit, a sassy talking mirror and a vain, villainous Queen who will stop at nothing to rid the land of the fair Snow White? Not to mention our loony and loveable dame Nursie, and a couple of Doctors with questionable methods...
Please come along and enjoy this wonderful show. There will be ten performances from December 5th to December 12th - don't miss out!

In response to the impact of Covid-19 and the recommended safety measures regarding social distancing, St Stephens Players have thus suspended rehearsals for our production of 'Hansel and Gretel' and postponed performance dates.
The show will certainly go on at a later time, hopefully in the not too distant future, but in the meantime all tickets will be refunded. We are keeping a mailing list of everyone who has booked and will offer priority booking as soon as we can proceed.
Many thanks and we hope to see you soon. A cracking good show is waiting in the wings!!

St Stephens Players are searching for a Musical Director to help bring this year's magical pantomime 'Beauty and the Beast' to life! If you have the time, spirit and ability to put our little but lively amateur theatre company through its musical paces, please do not hesitate to get in touch with us!
Or call director Diane Teehan: 07781 405 390
We start rehearsals in September but ideally would like the musical director to meet up with the director and choreographer of the production as soon as possible to discuss things.
Another year, another One Act Play Festival delightfully done and dusted! St Stephens Player’s entry, "13 SIGNS YOU SHOULD STOP BEING A PIRATE", directed and produced by Dani Robin, lived up to its promise to be a goofy celebration of the arrrt of being a pirate, and was enjoyed and well-received by the audience.
On Friday 5th July 2019, the good-for-nothin’ pirates Steph Boscher, Wendy Abbott, Georgia Harvey, Louise Mitchinson, Jenny Lambert and Dani Robin stormed onto the Beau Sejour stage and kept up a merry pace. They had so much fun and laughter in three months of rehearsals and it just kept on being fun!
However the voyage was not always smooth-sailing as original cast member Emily Hawkes had to withdraw from the production two weeks before showtime due to a sore back (get well soon, Emily!). Adding to the challenge of being a first-time director, Dani was called upon to step in and tread the boards - she fulfilled her roles on-and-off stage superbly.
Of course the production could not have happened without our fantastic backstage crew. Many thanks to Alan Robin our Stage Manager, Diane Teehan who sourced Props - which included parrots, hooks and Mr Whiskers the cat, say no more! - Mollie Dorey, who made gallons of tea for the thirsty shipmates, and Lesley Perchard, who had an easy ride as the prompt. Make-up and costume were very much a team effort, with extra last-minute assistance from the ultra-talented Alli Gooch on the latter!
The whole company had a brilliant time except... we can't stop talking like pirates, arrrhh!
Well done Dani and thank you for all your hard work and for representing The Players so well.
Scripts for this year's pantomime 'Beauty and the Beast' are now available for perusal! To get your hands on a copy, pop into Co-op Pharmacy Locale Commercial Arcade or get in touch with St Stephen's Players' Chair Lesley Percherd.

On Friday 29th March 2019 St Stephens Players celebrated 60 years on stage with a variety show bursting at the seams with music, comedy and all-round fantastic entertainment.
We would like to thank everyone who came along to watch and support the event. The audience completely entered into the spirit of the evening and lifted the company so high we floated on their enjoyment, laughter and love for our small am-dram family.
We are a true company, with everyone pulling together for the occasion, whether on-stage, backstage or front of house; the only divas (allowed for one night only!) were our gorgeous Dames. Rouge, feathers, bums and boobs - Dolly Parton eat your heart out!
Thank you to everyone who helped us to put on our 60th show. You are all diamonds.

Hi everyone; Christmas is now over for another year and we are all looking towards the New Year. The Players wish you all best wishes for 2019.
Panto season is all over now (Oh yes it is!) but what a success Cinderella was! Comments from the public were lovely.
A huge thank you must go to Tristan Boscher (Director) the cast, crew, back stage, front of house and all those who helped in so many ways over the months that it takes to put on a production like this. None of this could happen without an army of amazing people. St Stephens Players are so lucky to have them and to still have that lovely family atmosphere.
WELL DONE EVERYONE
Check out the gallery for some fab photographs of the Players in action in Cinderella!
Many thanks to Laura Clayton / Bailiwick Express for this fantastic write up about Cinderella and the Players!
St Stephens Players are delighted to bring the most wonderful, laugh-out-loud traditional family pantomime to our little community hall!

Please come along and enjoy a wonderful, magical show. There will be nine performances from December 8th to December 15th - book now, don't miss out!
Wishing you all a happy, healthy New Year and a very merry Christmas.
