St George’s Players is a community theatre group formed in 1934. We produce two full-length plays a year plus readings, showcases and scratch nights. 

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. If you want to hear about upcoming opportunities to audition for productions, attend play readings or scratch nights and more, sign up to our newsletter and follow us on social media. 

Where it happens

Rehearsals and plays usually take place at St George’s church, Vancouver Road SE23 2AG. We have also made use of other local spaces, including The Honor Oak and the Blythe Hill Tavern.

our history

We’re proud to be a part of a long history of community theatre in Forest Hill and Catford, with the earliest St George’s productions thought to date back to around 1928. The group officially formed in 1934, making 2024 our 90th anniversary year.
