The Players most recent production of Charlotte Jones 'Humble Boy' has been hailed by audiences as being a huge success.
The play, which is loosely based on Hamlet, tells the story of Theoretical Astrophysicist Felix Humble (Tom Guest), who, plagued with self-confidence and social anxieties, returns to his family home to attend the funeral of his father.

About Us

Formed in 1971 by a handful of enthusiasts as part of the newly formed SCA (Sedgefield Community Association), Sedgefield Players set high, professional standards but also have a great deal of fun putting on shows. The hard work and camaraderie involved is extremely therapeutic, whether on stage, back stage or front-of-house. New members are always welcome; no auditioning necessary.

If you'd like to act, make costumes, build sets, operate lights or sound effects, sell programmes or make coffee – come and join us! You'll have a great time! Or maybe you'd be happy to come along to the Parish Hall and enjoy excellent live theatre.

We produce full-length plays in March, June and November, a pantomime at Christmas and, in September, a Festival of One Act Plays. The Players have gained numerous awards over the years, both at Sedgefield Festival and others, including Richmond, Saltburn, Wakefield and the Isle of Man.
