Welcome

We are an award-winning community performing arts group based in Rickmansworth with a membership of over 100 members passionate about amateur theatre. Founded in 1944 we continue to put on at least two productions a year, usually a musical and a play in Spring and late Autumn at either Watersmeet in Rickmansworth or The Pump House in Watford. Our members get involved in all aspects of theatre productions, from performing, costuming, make-up, set design/construction and directing.

In addition to putting on a spring and autumn production, we have a weekly choir and youth group, run regular theatre-related workshops as well as hire ourselves out for murder mystery and entertainments evenings. We also have an extensive props and wardrobe facility.

We are affiliated to NODA – The National Operatic and Dramatic Association and over the years have won numerous awards, the most recent being:-

2012 – Nominated for Pat Redhead Award for Best Drama for Lend Me a Tenor

2011 – Nominated for The Shinfield Players Scenic Award for Wind in the Willows

2011 – Winner of Programme Design Award for Wind in the Willows

2010 – Winner of Flame Award for Excellence for Into the Woods

With so much going on there’s always room for new enthusiastic members who want to join us, on and off stage, in our quest to create a high quality enjoyable theatre experience for our loyal audiences.

We hope to see you soon.
