The Upper Lansdowne Players produced their first play in 1983 and are still going well. Producing two seasons a year, usually comedy, we are best known for the Theatre Dinner nights at the Upper Lansdowne Hall. These are organised so that all of the proceeds are returned to the community.
A broadly based group with a strong social flavour, we include High School students, Retirees and everything in between. We have an Actors Committee which generally runs the Players, but we’re pretty informal really.
We have a culture of continuous improvement and use professional acting coaches to help us with this.
We do it because we enjoy it, it’s good fun, if sometimes a little hair-raising and have no intention of stopping yet.
The 2017 spring season will feature “When did you last see your trousers? by Ray Galton and John Antrobus and directed by Jodie Lee.
While Howard is asleep in his lover’s flat, a burglar steals his suit, so how to get home to his wife? Mayhem results, with his Danish au-pair, the Home Secretary, a randy constable who doubles as a flasher, and a singing telegram Gorilla all involved. A night of outrageous fun guaranteed!
“Brilliantly constructed farce …achingly funny” The Guardian
