“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
