About Us

The Russell Players were founded in November 1977 by a group of Swallowfield Parishioners and has been going strong ever since. Our membership covers the entire spectrum from 10 to 70+ years old and still contains some of the founder members!

As a group we are based in Swallowfield Parish Hall and can be found in the Hall on every Wednesday and Sunday evening engaged in some activity or another. If we are not rehearsing for our next production then we could be play reading or even holding auditions for a  future production.

We also have an active Youth Group who stage their own productions and for whom workshops are run.

We aim to stage three productions a year, a pantomime in late January or early February, a play in late spring (May) and a play in early autumn (September / October).

We have an active social calendar with an annual Summer Barbecue, trips to local amateur and professional theatres and other ad-hoc events.

We would welcome any new members who wish to be involved in some or all of the various aspects of amateur dramatics. i.e. acting, directing, producing, stage management, costumes, lighting, props, prompt and front of house.

Membership is currently £10 a year for adults and £5 a year for children under 18 years old.

If you would like to join our group or would like more details please contact our
