Welcome to the Colwall Players web site - 32 years of performances in Colwall.


Colwall Players, like most Am Dram groups in the country, had their plans for 2020 scuppered by the arrival of corona virus and the subsequent restrictions imposed on the country as a whole. We are now tentatively planning for the future and hope to resume normal productions in October 2021. Meanwhile members have been gathering on Zoom with quizzes, a webinar and a weekly play reading, plus a socially distant outdoor walk or two, to maintain social contact. (Not just recently with being in lockdown again.) If you are a regular audience member of Colwall Players, you will know all about us and the plays we have done. If not, continue below and hopefully you will want to come to a show or even join us to perform or just help in some way with the production.

Colwall Players is an amateur theatre group, based in the village of Colwall, which lies just into Herefordshire on the lower western slopes of the Malvern Hills.

We typically produce three main-stage productions per year, in February, May and October. The February production has in the past, been particularly aimed at children and has ranged from traditional pantomime to adaptations of classic adventure stories. colwall village hall.jpg - click for larger image(60k)

The regular spring and autumn productions, are chosen to provide varied entertainment, and although many a comedy and who-dunnit have been produced over the years, we have also presented a number of serious and thought-provoking dramas.

From humble beginnings in the original building, the group has grown to become the vibrant contributer to the local social scene that it is today.

The reputation of the Players now attracts both members and audience from a much wider area than the village and our productions have been much applauded. For more information about our activities - past, present and future - please click on one of the topics in the panel to the right.
