COVID-19

  In light of the current COVID-19 situation and latest government guidelines about isolation and social gatherings, The Whitefield Players are suspending rehearsals until this all calms down a bit.

Therefore, it is with regret that we will not be putting on a summer play. We hope to be able to return to rehearsals in September to prepare for our usual pantomime in early 2021 - date TBC.

If you would like to get involved in the pantomime; up on stage, behind the scenes or just helping out on the night please get in touch on hello@thewhitefieldplayers.co.uk

Until then, we hope all our members, fans and supporters remain safe and well.

We are a local AmDram Group situated in The Phoenix Theatre of Horfield United Reformed Church.

Following the renovation of Phoenix Hall and its stage in 1999, David Goddard along with members of congregation from Horfield United Reformed Church got together to put on a pantomime; Babes in the Wood and Robin Hood. 

In 2001, we were joined by Tracy Rogers and Helen Dunn.  Together they directed our second and third pantos – Aladdin and Cinderella.  Tracy went on to write and direct all subsequent shows with assistance from our Panto ‘Baddy’, Tim Scaplehorn.

Our talented group consists of: Directors; musicians; choreographers; lighting and sound engineers; special effects technicians; a costume designer and seamstress; scenery artists; and approximately 30 cast members of all ages and talents.

With Tracy directing her own creations, we perform two shows a year: a Christmas Pantomime in January and a summer play (previously variety shows of sketches and songs).

Got a creative flair? Join Us

We meet on Sunday afternoons at 2.30 in March – June to rehearse for the summer play; and September – January for pantomime rehearsals.

Rehearsals next start in September – Date TBC

We are always looking for new members and talent in the lead up to and / or on the night of performances. 

Anyone wanting to pursue and acting ambition or showcase a artistic or technical flair – all ages and experiences are welcome! You just need commitment and a good sense of humour! Come along and introduce yourself.
