Digswell Players are a successful local amateur drama group based in Digswell, Hertfordshire UK (near Welwyn Garden City). We are a member of the National Operatic and Dramatic Association (NODA) www.noda.org.uk.
We have been putting shows on since 1954
At Digswell Players, we produce our annual January Pantomime, a play in May. Our youth theatre, Expressions, stage a musical in June. Meetings and rehearsals are held on Wednesday evenings and on Sunday afternoons for the pantomime and the Youth group. We also rehearse on some Tuesday evenings.
In addition to acting there are many roles and 'parts' to be played as members of Digswell Players.
We have a full technical set up of modern lighting and sound equipment and this, along with design and building of scenery requires us to have a dedicated crew to mange and run these sections. We are always welcoming people to join this side of the society.
Our next production:
The plot centres around George, who needs money to pay for his daughter’s wedding. The Vicarage is currently empty as they are awaiting a new Vicar, and George hits on the bright idea of renting it out to a theatrical company for a Murder Mystery Weekend. Unfortunately, before the weekend can take place, Bishop Herbert appoints their first woman Vicar, the Revd Caroline Timberlake. When Caroline goes away for the weekend, George is determined that the event should go ahead. But then the other Church Warden starts asking questions, the Bishop comes to call, the theatrical ‘lovies’ take over the place, and the audience for the Murder Mystery begin to arrive. As chaos mounts, George finds himself kidnapping a Bishop, pretending to be Caroline, and tearing his hair out as he tries to keep order
