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, with music from Opera to Jazz and plays from Shakespeare to Pantomime. We are also the venue for 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 We’re a friendly bunch and look forward to welcoming you.

What’s On

The Taming of the Shrew  from Thame Players  runs till Saturday and is one of the Bard’s  funniest comedies. When Baptista decides no-one can marry his lovely daughter Bianca until his elder  and feisty other daughter Kate, is married, the quest is on to find a match. Petrucchio thinks he is ‘the man for the job’.

Buy tickets at Spear Travels or here  online. Tickets also available ‘on the door’.

The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel  Thame here in Oxfordshire shares a name with a small Sherpa community in the Solukhumbu region of Nepal. Thame in Nepal has been terribly affected by the earthquake that hit Nepal on the 25th April, and the Thame Town Council in the UK met and decided, unanimously and enthusiastically, that we should try to do what we could to help our Nepali namesakes recover. On Friday 17th July at 8pm Thame Cinema will screen The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel with all proceeds going to help rebuild the school in Thame Nepal, built by Sir Edmund Hilary. Please support their efforts by buying a ticket via their website.

On Saturday August 1st we welcome the touring show  Raising Agents,  celebrating 100 Years of the WI.

And then in September Thame Players return with the unmissable Journey’s End by R C Sherriff. Tickets now on sale.

The Players Theatre, Nelson Street, Thame, Oxfordshire, OX9 2DP

Thame Players are quite simply one of the finest amateur theatre companies in the country. That’s why, despite my regular work at Oxford Playhouse, I travel from Oxford and try not to miss their work. That’s why, too, every effort should be made to help this treasure house of local theatre continue developing for the enjoyment and education of local people.” Gwilym Scourfield, Old Marston, Oxford
