The Players Theatre is the home of Thame Players.

The Players Theatre, home of Thame Players

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.


Auditions for ‘Quartet’ by Ronald Harwood were held on Monday 14th April.   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
