2021 Panto

After missing a year due to Covid, the Players are back with their Annual Pantomime. Written by Tom Guest, Jack and The Beanstalk, has the usual mix of dad jokes, fairies, bad guys and dancing. Dame Trott is being played this year by Peter Hook with Sarah Legender as Simple Simon and Lucy Atkinson as Jack.

Directed by Sarah Atkinson, this rip roaring performance ticks all the boxes. Joining the revelry is Kelsey White as Jill, who has her work cut out for her as she is also doing the choreography. Baron Squeezem is being played by David Jasper and Ste Edgoose-Clubley and their sidekicks are Liz Flanagan and Jacqui O'Meara and Emily Legender and Oliva Kime. Daisy the cow is being played by some of our SPYS members.

Get ready to sing along to some popular songs and of course join in with our end of panto song – Reach for The Stars.

Help us when you spend

Co-op Community Fund

Sedgefield Players is one of three groups to be chosen as a local Co-op Community Fund cause! This runs from 25th October 2020 until 23rd Oct 2021, in which we receive two lump sum payments. This will go towards resources for both our adult and SPYS’ productions, once we resume putting on our performances.

How it works...every time you shop in the Co-op using your loyalty card, the 3 local charities can benefit. Please support us by logging in through the members’ portal and selecting Sedgefield Players.

If you buy selected Co-op branded products, you will earn a % for us, as well as earning your own points to spend at your leisure. That’s a welcome bonus in time for Christmas!

What to do next... Get yourself a Co-op card for just £1 and start spending! You can apply here: or ask in store. Download the app, click on ’Community’ and choose one of the three causes to support (hopefully Sedgefield Players, please.)
Happy spending and thank you for your continued support. Stay safe all.

In COVID times!

Don’t ask the Family

As we all know the Players haven’t been able to meet for the past few months in person, so instead we, like many others, have been meeting on Zoom to stay in contact and have fun. This year we missed our June production and so have created a Web-Comedy Series, ‘Don’t ask the Family’ based around a Family Quiz on Zoom. We really hope you enjoy it.

SPYS In COVID times!

SPYS also go online

Our SPYS group have produced two videos during lockdown.

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.
