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.
