The Players are finally back.
After a long wait the Sedgefield Players are finally back on stage. We have kept ourselves busy with virtual rehearsals, plus our very successful Virtual Drama Festival in September 2020. Now that restrictions have been lifted we are now back in our home in the Parish Hall. We are delighted to invite you to come and see four One Act Plays over two nights, both with the Players and the SPYS. Please come and support and we look forward to seeing you all again soon.
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: https://membership.coop.co.uk/new-registration 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.
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.
Our SPYS group have produced two videos during lockdown.
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.
