LOOK BACK IN HUMOUR
A night of light hearted comedy. In a break from our usual plays and productions, this June we have are having change. Look Back in Humour will be a night consisting of a one act play ‘Acting Isn’t Plumbing’, followed by various songs, monologues and sketches all designed to raise a smile. Pies and Peas are included in the price and of course the bar will be available throughout the two nights of the production.
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.
In April the Players will be performing two plays ‘War Brides’ by Marion Craig Wentworth and ‘Beata Beatrix’ by Gillian Plowman at the Richmond One Act Drama Festival, part of the All England Theatre Festival. For tickets to this event go to their website via this link.
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.
