Dame Judi Dench to be Patron of Festival Players!

Exciting News about The Festival Players Theatre Company!

We can think of no greater endorsement of the integrity of our work.

There was a wonderful performance of The Winter’s Tale last Sunday (12th) on the beautiful Scilly Isle of Tresco with Dame Judi Dench in the audience.

We are thrilled and honoured that this great Lady of the Theatre has accepted an invitation to become a Patron of our Company.

Just a few final chances to see The Winter’s Tale by The Festival Players –  In West Wales, Oxford, Stratford upon Avon, Worcester, Witney, Stroud, Cheltenham, Winchester, Liskeard, Bideford, and South Glos. Details are below.

Directed by Michael Dyer – Music written and directed by Johnny Coppin

A talented team of professional actors in a colourful comedy; an all-male, fast-paced, costumed production. Most performances are open-air, so bring low-backed seating, rugs and warm, rainproof clothing.  Note –  Johnny does not peform at these events. ALL the music is sung and performed by the actors.
