The Dedham Players is one of the leading local amateur theatre groups drawing on
the Colchester, North Essex and South Suffolk regions. Since being founded in 1970
the Dedham Players have mounted over 60 productions. These include our regular shows
at the Assembly Rooms in Dedham, normally in Spring and Autumn, and, roughly every
3 years, an open air production mounted in the marvellous setting of Castle House
in Dedham. We are always happy to welcome new members - whether they have been involved
in amateur theatre before, or just want to have at go at something different. There
are many ways of helping out on a production - from acting, costumes, lighting, sound,
directing, finding props, painting sets...and as a member you can also enjoy occasional
socials, from quizzes to mystery walks, as well as the company of one of the friendliest
amateur dramatics groups in North Essex. Of course, if you would just like to come
along to see one of our productions, we would love to see you there.
The North Essex Theatre Guild Awards have been announced and Dedham Players have
received awards for Best Set ('When we are Married' and 'Breaking the Code') and
Best Actor (Paul George for his portrayal of Alan Turin in 'Breaking the Code').
We also received Runner up for best production for 'Breaking the Code'. Many congratulations
to all involved - full details of all our nominations can be found on our “Links”
Auditions for our next production in March 2013 are being held on Monday 9th December
at 7.45pm at the Assembly Rooms, Dedham. Please see “Current and future productions”
