Comberton Players, founded in 2007, is a relaxed group of amateurs from all walks of life who meet regularly to stage a couple of productions each year. These tend to be a pantomime in the winter and a play in the summer.
We meet on Tuesday and/or Wednesday evenings in the Village Hall or Old Village Hall when rehearsing and have a talented team of supporters behind us doing costumes, scenery, props,lighting, music and all the other things that get done behind the scenes and front of house.
Recent pantomimes have included:
- Snow White
- Sleeping Beauty
- Pirates of the Meridian
- Robin Hood
while summer productions have included:
- Nick Warburtons “Easy Stages and Distracted Globe”,
- Paul Gisbey’s “Write About What You Know”
- Norman Robbins’ comedy thriller “Tomb with a View”
- Agatha’s Christie’s courtroom drame “Witness for the Prosecution”
- Tom Stoppard’s “The Real Inspector Hound”
- David Tristram’s “Last Tango in Comberton”
- David Foxton’s ‘Breakfast for One’
- Gytha Lodge’s ‘The death of Arnold Balham’
We are a friendly bunch and are always happy to welcome new peoples,both on and off stage, whether they have experience or just want to have a go. . For more information contact Glynis Ellis on 262214.
