Focus on: The Marlow Players

| | ,

The Marlow Players is an established society over 60 years standing, being formed in 1937 to bring amateur theatre to the local community.

Two productions per year are performed at the Shelley Theatre, in March and November.

The Players also host Les Baladins de Marly-le-Roi –  our French town-twin drama group every other year when they bring their production across to Marlow. Each alternate year, we take our Spring production to Marly-le-Roi , where we are very well hosted by members of les Baladins and perform before a very full, loyal and receptive audience. In 2003 the audience included the British Ambassador and his family from Paris.

The aim of the Players is to provide theatre going public with a quality production both on and off stage. We rehearse and create and build our own sets in the Studio in Liston Road.

Amateur theatre offers an interesting and fulfilling hobby for those who wish to become part of a team of like minded people on stage; backstage; directing; publicity; front of house whatever suits your talent or interest.

We have a full program of workshops and theatre visits in addition to the productions – why not come and see us and find out more? We promise you a warm welcome.

Also, remember we have a page with full details of many other Marlow groups and societies
