Halstead Players was re-formed in 1968 as the St.Margaret’s Players, because of our old connection with St.Margaret’s Church. In fact, the original group was set up by an earlier Rector of the church, Rev. Noel Woods.
We changed our name to Halstead Players in the early 1990’s and became a fully fledged charity, and have been performing in the village ever since. So, our 50th Anniversary will be in 2 years time, in 2018.
From time to time we take part in the parades at Knockholt Carnival to raise money for charity. We also hold a BBQ for members every year (usually in August) and will be holding regular get-togethers for members on the first Wednesday of every month.
This will take place on Sunday, September 4th at 10 a.m in the Pavilion, Station Road. It will be followed by a discussion about content for the November revue.
We normally put on at least 2 separate productions each year, and alternate between straight plays (either comedies or something more serious), revues (for which we are famous) and pantomimes.
Our last production was “Best of British”, 3 one-act plays by Noel Coward, Alan Bennett and John Mortimer, which we performed at the beginning of April, 2016.

We would be very pleased to hear from you, particularly if you wish to take a starring role, but also if you wish to help behind the scenes, with such things as the lighting, sound, props and set construction, and (very importantly) helping to advertise the productions.

Our next production will be a revue, currently with the working title of
“Whatever Next ?”,
which will take place on November 19th, 25th and 26th, in Halstead Village Hall.
We will be having a get-together in early September to discuss and agree items to include in the show.
