Our intimate 119 seat Players Theatre is 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.
We’re holding auditions for our summer production of Shakespeare’s Much Ado About Nothing on March 17 and 18. Director David Bright is setting the production in the 1920`s with all the gaiety of flappers, the Charleston , and swing music to give it a light summery feel. Oh! and changing the soldiers to early day airmen. With a bit of doubling up, some gender bending, and the total elimination of one character he’s managed to get the cast down to 14 men. There are 4 female speaking parts plus the probable addition of 2 or 3 non speaking parts. Full details here>

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
