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. Check out our new video! 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.
This month is going to be quiet. The theatre goes dark early on for Thame Players to prepare for their March production Murder Afoot, a fast moving and clever murder mystery comedy. Tickets are selling well so please do not delay in buying yours.
Saturday February 6: Macbeth A film that has already taken its place in the premier league of Shakespeare adaptations, this has a mesmerising performance from Michael Fassbender in the titular role with the equally spellbinding Marion Cotillard as Lady Macbeth – it is hard to imagine two actors better equipped to this tale of ruthless ambition, superstition, paranoia and escalating pre-emptive violence. Bold, violent, tormented, epic – a brilliant and operatic take on a classic, and a film that reawakens the genre.
Macbeth is the Thame Players production in July.
Advance tickets only from Thame Cinema. Tickets £5 available on the door subject to availability. More details see Thame Cinema website.

“As individuals, many of us enjoy attending the varied productions put on by the Players, and listening to the speakers who appear at the theatre.
At the WI, we have been entertained by the Players and been informed by interesting speakers. This year, we particularly appreciated the way the Players have gone out of their way to set up a special event to celebrate the WI 100th anniversary by inviting the Mikron Theatre Group to perform at the theatre. Thame Players Theatre plays a very valuable part in the life of the local community.” Judy Dudley, Secretary, on behalf of Thame WI
