St George’s Players community theatre group was formed in 1934. Over 80 years later we still produce two full length plays a year, plus readings, mini shows and more.

How it works

Every member of the Players is a volunteer, everyone is welcome – no experience necessary! – and all proceeds are invested in future productions.

Where it happens

Rehearsals and plays usually take place at St George’s church, Vancouver Road SE23 2AG. But we have also made use of (and recommend) The Honor Oak and the Blythe Hill Tavern.

The committee

Our work is overseen by our committee. Like every member of the Players, they are volunteers.

A bit of history

Our first production was Nothing But the Truth. Since then we have staged hundreds of performances, from Charles Dickens’ much loved A Christmas Carol to Daphne De Maurier’s haunting Rebecca and Mike Leigh’s excruciating Abigail’s Party.

In 1952 we were the first amateur group to produce The Holly and the Ivy, fresh from the West End. We have even tried our hand at pantomime, marking our Diamond Jubilee with Cinderella in 1994.

Recent productions include The Hound of the Baskervilles in 2013, Arsenic and Old Lace in 2014, and Rope in 2015.
