The Village Players Rushlake Green is an amateur dramatic society that stages several productions every year, including dramas, comedies, musicals and pantomimes. The speed with which tickets generally sell out is a testimony to the high standards of entertainment achieved. The group is always keen to attract new members. So if you have a particular skill, or you’re just keen to have a go, you’re very welcome to join. Involvement could be acting, singing, assisting with stage design or construction, providing technical support or helping out back-stage or front of house.
The VIllage Players Rushlake Green has been granted CIO ( Charitable Incorporated Organisation) status by the Charity Commission. Its Registered Charity Number is 1184546

Comfort and Joy
Our sell-out production of ” Comfort and Joy” by Mike Harding was a huge success with many considering it to be one of our best productions to date. We are very grateful to our Director, Pam Edmonds, and to all of the cast and crew who helped make this such a positive event.
The Happiest Days of Your Life/Relative Values
Our previous two productions – ”The Happiest Days of Your Life” and ”Relative Values” were also amongst our very best events. Once again we are grateful to our directors, Heather Young and Helen Halliday, and to all of the talented cast and crew who helped to make these two productions so successful.
