We are very proud of the standard of our actors and actresses both young and not so young. Well done to all!!!!
Val Middleton-Egan (President)

Well, what a fantastic achievement! Players have received a total of 12 nominations in the GMDF Full Length Festival. To put our number into perspective, there were 40 societies receiving nominations this year. Our 12 puts us at the top of the table for Drama nominations (the only theatre with a higher number of nominations than us was a Musical society), so I think we can be very proud of all involved in putting Players on the map and making this year such a great success. Let’s hope we can bring home some trophies.
