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 "Let Sleeping Frogs Die" - a Murder Mystery Evening, with a full three-course supper provided. Previously (27 & 28 November, 2015) we staged our Old Time Music Hall tribute. This February, we are proud to present The Railway Children, A Musical.
Happy New YearThanks to all of you who supported us during 2016 - and we remember with fondness those now treading the boards of the great "Theatre In The Sky".
The Railway Children - 16, 17 & 18 Feb. 2017
A great two nights on Thursday and Friday, and a matinee and evening performance today (Saturday 18 February). Tickets available online until 11:30 am on 18 February. Thank you to everyone who came to see us !
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.
