We at the Village miss seeing you and hope that you are all keeping well and safe in these challenging times.
We thought you might like to know what has been happening at the Village while we have all been in lockdown during the last six months.
As you know, the immediate future for live performances is uncertain. The Board has made the difficult decision to set aside what we had been working on for the 2020/2021 season until 2021/2022. We hope to produce an alternative season of plays for what we can make of THIS season with small casts, simple sets and no intermission — and ones that will make you laugh. We think everyone is looking forward to when we can do that again, together. As soon as we have a plan, we will announce it by email and on this website.
Theatre does not exist without an audience, which makes you the most vital part of our community. Without you there would be no Village Players. Your support over the years, for which we are so grateful, has shown us that the Village is important to you. Now, we need you more than ever.
In the meantime, have a look at some of our past seasons. Just click on one of the images below, and read more about that season and all the plays in it…
