About Thame Players
Thame Players is a vibrant theatre group with over 150 Members, founded over 75 years ago and presenting a wide variety of quality productions ever since: from Shakespeare to pantomime, musicals to high drama.
We present five productions a year, more than any other non-professional group in the area. We also run a thriving Murder Mystery group for hirer, along with social events and the opportunity to be involved with all the other visiting shows that our theatre hosts.
Thame Players acquired a 50 year lease on the church hall in Nelson Street in 1977 and began the work of transforming it into the Players Theatre. St Mary's Church, Thame, agreed to sell the freehold to Thame Players in 1996 and purchase was completed on 28th February, 1997. The ideal location of the Players Theatre - near to the High Street and car parking facilities - made its development highly desirable. The transformation of the building into a much more comfortable 129 seat theatre was completed in October 2002. The theatre now includes a high standard of amenities for the audience, facilities for the disabled as well as stage and technical facilities to rival many professional theatres. As a result, we are able to host an average of two dozen professional acts throughout the year.
