Minstead Players

This page is managed by Kay Nicholson

Minstead Players is not your archetypal Drama Society, we can offer opportunities to get involved in “Something Different”. We’re looking into running local day workshops about different aspects of drama and are enthusiastic about new ideas and ways of doing things. Casting professionally written plays can be a problem so following in the footsteps of Minstead Panto we may be launching into home writing a production which would have a strong local link and be tailor-written to make best use of our resources. So, whatever your interest in drama, be it backstage or onstage, why not join us for an event and see what you think?

The next Minstead Players  production on Friday 18th November and Saturday 19th November 2016 in the village Hall  is  Agatha Crusty and the Village Hall Murders by Derek Webb. Rehearsals start in September.

Agatha Crusty (pronounced Croosty) is a crime novelist. She’s also pretty adept at solving crimes. And when her sister-in-law Alice invites her to spend a few days with her in the village of Chortelby, it’s not long before she gets caught up in a series of murders which seem directed at members of the All Saints Village Hall committee. From Toby, the Vicar, and Eleanor, Chair of the committee, to Harry Knott the caretaker and identical twins Olivia and Oliver Truscott-Pratt, there are plenty of suspects. And with an investigating officer as incompetent as D.I. Twigg, there are plenty of laughs as the murders begin to pile up. But, while packed full of wit and very funny scenes, this is also a genuine murder mystery with an ingenious plot which will tax the little grey cells of the audience at the same time!

We have a director, producer and back stage manager. All we need is some actors. – would you like to be involved?
