Foyer Extension Progress

The Foyer Extension is proceeding well. The new wall which divides the old rehearsal room (aka 'the garage') is nearly built and will form the rear boundary of the extension.  Supporting beams are in place for when the breakthrough to the existing foyer occurs.  The next big development will be the new roof!  Scaffolding is erected inside to facilitate this and the Players are all hoping for good weather when the changeover is due. 

There are a few more weeks of building work to be done, inside and outside, and then the fitting out will be started.  We look forward to showing off the new Foyer to all our members and patrons in due course.

Tickets for Cleo, Camping, Emanuelle and Dick

Tickets for our next production Cleo, Camping, Emanuelle and Dick go on sale next Tuesday 4th October from the Nantwich Tourist Office (01270 600727) or on-line at

A sharp and hilarious biographical play based on the life of “Carry On” star Sid James. ‘Carrying on’ in the great tradition of British comedy, Terry Johnson’s play takes some familiar faces and gets a bit familiar with them.

Filming’s not as glamorous as it’s cracked up to be. It’s a miserable business if your caravan leaks or your co-star’s a manic depressive, and those younger women aren’t so young any more. Carrrying on with jokes, innuendos and asides, this play tells of changes as the popularity of the genre fades.

Make sure you get your tickets early for this wonderful comedy before they are all gone.
