The Priory Players are a friendly group, open to anybody interested in amateur dramatics.
All our members ‘muck in’ to do all the jobs involved in putting on plays – from acting on the stage, to helping out behind the scenes, set-building, painting, running the box-office and lighting etc, whatever aspect of theatre you are interested in, the PP’s can offer you the opportunity to try your hand.
We meet every Tuesday at the Progress Hall from 8.00pm to 10.00pm and anybody who is interested in coming along one evening to see what we get up to is most welcome.
The hall is situated just off Well Hall Road, Eltham SE9 1SL and is a 5 minute walk from Eltham train station, various bus routes also stop nearby. If you are coming by car there is ample parking outside the hall or in the surrounding roads.
We put on three productions a year and our annual pantomime in January. Most of our pantomimes differ from the traditional pantos that other bigger theatres produce but still with a fairytale theme and lots of opportunity for audience participation (voluntary of course!). We try to appeal to the widest age range and the emphasis is always on fun and laughter. Our other two productions are usually in May and October and for these we try to find plays which challenge both audience and cast. These may be straight or comedy but tend towards contemporary drama.
