Thanks to everyone who came along to the play reading social on 17th August. It was good to see some old and new faces.

We are potentially planning a Murder Mystery for our Autumn production. If you would like to act in our Murder Mystery then you’ll need to be able to commit to:

  • Tuesday rehearsals from 7.30pm starting  on 4th September.
  • Technical rehearsal on Sunday 25th November.
  • Stage production on Friday 30th November and Saturday 1st December.
  • If required, there may be further rehearsals near to the production date.

The Murder Mystery may require some improvisation, please let us know if you would be comfortable with this.

If you haven’t expressed an interest already but would like to act in our Murder Mystery please email or message us on Facebook 

We’re sorry but this will be limited to adult actors for this production.

New committee announced

Thanks to all of you that attended our AGM on 15th June.

Thank you

Our thanks go to all the hard work from the 2016/2017 committee members.

We particularly wish to thank Bev Ibbotson, who has worked tirelessly as Chair for the last 8 years. She has decided to step down from Chair this year, but remains on the committee and will continue to direct our 2017 productions – you will even get to see her return to the stage in our next production Ladies Day!

Marilyn Stannard, who has been a Chelford Players committee member for a staggering 34 years was awarded a lifetime membership as a massive thank you for all her support over the years.

Our thanks also go to George Marcall, who is stepping down from the committee and is sadly leaving the Chelford Players as he moves to be closer to his family in the South. We wish him well with the move.

New committee

We have voted in a new committee for 2017 /2018. We would like to welcome a new Chair – Christina Stannard. Chrissey has been a valued committee member for many years and frequently plays lead roles in many of our productions – you may have seen her as the evil pirate in our last pantomine Treasure Island!

Our thanks also go to Gordon Ibbotson who will continue as Treasurer and Claire Badger as Secretary.

Our new committee is:

Christina Stannard
Gordon Ibbotson
Claire Badger
Bev Ibbotson
Lisa Bessant Adams
Nick Munday
Marilyn Stannard
Lynsey Hunt
