The Wind in the Willows

We are so excited to have started rehearsals for none other than the classic…


Meet the well-loved characters of Toad, Mole, Ratty and Badger in this adaptation by John Morley who has woven their exploits into an exciting adventure story for all the family. Follow Toad’s addiction to caravanning and cars, his imprisonment and escape with the aid of Jenny and her washerwoman aunts, and his fight with the Weasels and Stoats to regain Toad Hall!

The Box Office is now open.

Huge thanks to Dave Hawkins for his original illustration of Toad in his motor car!

(This amateur production of “The Wind in the Willows (Morley) is presented by arrangement with Concord Theatricals Ltd. on behalf of Samuel French Ltd.

Ghostly fun for Halloween!

And so there goes another production, The Ghosts of Halfway House was a great success and we even welcomed the playwright, Richard James, to Compton to see the production who was very impressed!

*Play Reading Thursday 3rd August at 7.30pm in the Welstead Room*

We’ve chosen a fabulous spooky play called The Ghosts of Halfway House by Richard James for our autumn production which will run from 19th – 21st October (including a Saturday matinee).

Everyone welcome next week to have a final read through to help decide on casting! Look forward to seeing you there 👻📖

Play reading – all welcome

If you’re interested in joining The Compton Players or simply want to find out a bit more about us, please do come along to our informal play reading on the 6th July at 7.30pm in the Welstead Room at Compton Village Hall, RG20 6NP. We’d love to get together, catch up, and have some fun reading scripts we haven’t read before, and to welcome any potential new members who’d like to get involved. No pressure, and we are a very friendly bunch! Choices of play to be confirmed, but we thought it might be fun to read an extract from something classic and something more current for a bit of contrast (and of course any suggestions will be most welcome!) If you have any questions just drop us a message on Facebook, and we look forward to seeing/meeting you!
