The Players Theatre is the home of Thame Players.

The Players Theatre, home of Thame Players

Our intimate 132 seat Players Theatre, is both the home of Thame Players and a great venue for a wide variety of performing arts, including Thame’s only regular cinema.

Thame Players is an established non-professional theatre group that produces five shows each year.  We welcome new members; to act, direct, produce, build scenery or run the lights or sound and to help ‘front of house’. See the links to Get Involved and For Members  Why not come to an Audition and get on stage? We’re a friendly bunch and look forward to welcoming you.


What’s On

One of the highlights of the shows we regularly host comes on April 9th when Patrick Collins brings us Peculiar Ground, another of his thoroughly enjoyable evenings in aid of Amnesty International.

But before then you’ll not want to miss any of the shows listed on the right, including a film that will have you cheering in the aisles. Asante’s wonderful film  A United Kingdom tells the story of a true life post-war interracial love affair that would have a significant impact on British politics, the colonial administration, and the nation that would become Botswana. This is a powerful and uplifting love story, a slice of colonial history, and a damning indictment of colonial politics and its functionaries, quite breathtaking in their smug arrogance. This Thursday 30th at 10.30am and Friday 31st at 8pm. Friday will sell out, so try to join us on Thursday morning.
