Past Productions

Our in-house company is the Norwich Players, established in 1911. Each month we stage a play or musical of national or international reputation, fully produced by our team of amateur actors and technicians, assisted by a professional staff. Each year we endeavour to offer a varied programme of plays to suit all tastes, from period comedy to contemporary drama, to witty farce or political thriller.

In between our in-house productions we host both week-long residencies and one-night stands by visiting artists and companies. Again we try to offer a varied programme of theatre, music, cabaret, comedy, talks, and most recently film. Click on our ‘what’s on’ page to see our latest programme.
