The Orpen Players Theatre Group

Formed in 1969, the Orpen Players are an active drama group now with over 50 years experience!  They rehearse (and perform) in the Orpen Hall with rehearsals taking place at 8 pm on Mondays and Fridays. They only meet between June – August for their AGM in July and occasional workshops and social events.


The group produce 3 shows a year, typically two plays and a Panto. The plays are normally towards the end of May and November The third and biggest show is their annual Panto running over the last weekend in January and first in February; rehearsals will have started in November. This is normally the only show that will have children performing.

  • prompts.
