”Lady Windermere's Fan,


 - a four-act comedy by Oscar Wilde, first produced 22 February 1892 at the St James's Theatre in London. The play was first published in 1893. Like many of Wilde's comedies, it bitingly satirizes the morals of Victorian society, particularly marriage”

Welcome to The Dedham Players

Hello and welcome to the all new Dedham Players website.

We thought it was time for a fresh look and have tried to include some new features and make it easier to see what’s coming next and view more of the photos of recent productions. Some of the new features are complete whilst others will be added over time. Do have a good click and look around. We hope you like it and would welcome feedback - just click the link at the bottom of the page.

The Dedham Players is one of the leading local amateur theatre  groups drawing on the Colchester, North Essex and South Suffolk regions. We produce 2 to 3 productions a year and always strive to present an interesting variety of shows and display lots of local talent.

         Our most recent production was The Recruiting Officer held

         in the Open Air at Castle House Dedham. It was great fun to          put on and we had super audiences enjoying what always

         proves to be a special event.

         For photos go to Past Productions.

Our next production will be Oscar Wilde’s comedy Lady Windermere’s Fan to be presented in the Assembly Rooms in October. Auditions are now complete and rehearsals underway. For more information go to What’s On Next.

On this site you will be able to see….

*** WANTED ***



Do you have any old photographs, posters, programmes etc of past productions that you would  be able to let us have a look at for us to include copies in our website to record the history of The Dedham Players.  

We believe that the ‘modern’ Players were set up in 1970 but that performances actually started back in the 1950’s. We would like to put together the history of the Dedham Players so if perhaps you were once in The Dedham Players do please get in touch - we would love to hear from you and any photos or information since then would be really appreciated. We would, of course, return everything to you. Please contact us on:
