St John's Players welcomes and needs new members. If you would like to be involved in any aspect of Amateur Theatre, then we would like to hear from you.  You may not want to perform on stage, but we need plenty of behind the scenes support as well as front of house duties. Take delight in joining the team to produce shows to be enjoyed by others as well as yourself.

St John's Players have been active in Churchdown for 50 years, and have won awards for our acting prowess as well as stage set design & construction. We pride ourselves on our reputation for producing good quality shows for our audiences.

Our productions always start on the second Tuesday of May and on the second Tuesday of November, running through to the Saturday. 

We are fortunate that we have a good working relationship with the St John's Church, and enjoy use of the church hall facilities and the stage, for all of our rehearsals leading up to the performances.

If you would like to join us, then please contact our Secretary, Mrs Susan Ryder on 01452 713952 or by e-mail at
