Egerton Players is a Kent village drama group with our members drawn from the locality, aged from four years old to over ninety! We perform and rehearse in the village of Egerton, and its locality, situated around six miles west from Ashford, overlooking the Weald of Kent. Our repertoire includes musicals, revues, comedies and the ever-popular pantomime (oh yes it does!) Our most recent event was The Railway Children, A Musical, which played to Egerton on 16, 17 & 18 February this year. Last year (2016) we presented a Murder Mystery Evening: "Let Sleeping Frogs Die" - , including a full three-course supper for our audience. Previously (27 & 28 November, 2015) we staged our Old Time Music Hall tribute.
AGM 2017Thank you to everyone who came to our 2017 AGM on Monday 20 February. Your committee for the forthcoming year are: Chris Stevens (Chairman), Sara Martin (Treasurer), Vanessa Perrin (Secretary) Mac Mercer, Dave Austin, Anne Rayner, Ciara Crossley Roberts, Yvonne Smith, and Elaine Narbrough.
The Railway ChildrenThank you to everyone who came to see The Railway Children, A Musical, performed 16, 17 & 18 February 2017. We hope you enjoyed watching as much as we enjoyed putting it on. Special thanks to all the hardworking cast and crew who made this production a runaway success (choo choo !)
Spectacular Sixties Showdown
In May (2017) we're staging our tribute to the 1960's (a decade that some who were there claim not to remember?)
We expect it to take the format of a revue-style show, incorporating songs, sketches and dance!
Scheduled performance dates are 12 & 13 May. More news soon.
Most of our productions are staged in Egerton's beautiful Millennium Village Hall; although in recent years we have braved the English summer with outdoor extravaganza including Shakespeare's magnificent A Midsummer Night's Dream, and the critically acclaimed Darling Buds of May, performed on the set of the original TV series.
We're always looking to welcome new members: whether you're an actor or actress, would like to be part of our musical chorus, or maybe assist in directing and producing. Or perhaps a backstage role is more your thing: helping out with scenery & props, technical operations or makeup & costumes. Egerton Players is a dynamic and lively group, and we thrive on the talent, generosity and (dare we say!) good humour of our members. Make no mistake, putting on a show demands a good deal of work; but the rewards are undeniably unique and we do our very best to make the journey from script to curtain-up enjoyable for all.
