About Us

The Compton Players have been producing plays every year since 1947. We aim to show our audiences a diverse range,  from Shakespeare to brand new contemporary work and anything in between!   Be it a thriller, a high paced  farce,  a pantomime,  tense drama, light comedy or a classic piece, we love a challenge.  All of our members throws themselves into the whole process of rehearsing, planning and building the sets, organising costumes and props; we are a great team who produce high quality plays whilst having a great deal of fun!

We always welcome new members, and are delighted to include new members in our  productions. We normally rehearse on Tuesday and Thursday evenings in the Village Hall, Compton (about 10 miles North of Newbury) and for most productions there are twelve weeks of rehearsals. It doesn’t matter if you’ve had any previous experience or not.

New members may want to act, but we also welcome those who can construct scenery, or would like to learn how, those who can make or sew costumes, those with a knowledge of electrics and/or electronics, and those who would like to help with publicity, box-office and front of house.

Our members come from all over the place – from Thatcham in the South to Grove in the North – so there’s probably someone near you.
