Your local amateur dramatic group, open to the whole community, entertainment for all.

Who we are and what we do

Barrington Players is a local amateur dramatics group run by an enthusiastic group of amateurs and a thriving membership of all ages,

We are based in Barrington, Somerset, and our performances are held in Barrington Village Hall.

Our first performance, the pantomime Aladdin, celebrated the opening of our newly built village hall in 2007. This has been followed by a succession of successful pantomimes, plays, variety performances and theatre suppers.

Our pantomimes have received many nominations and awards including runner up for Best Production by a Non-Theatre Society in the Cinderella Awards organised by the Somerset Fellowship of Drama, which each year represents around 30 pantomimes taking place all over Somerset and Devon. But the icing on the cake was when a couple of years ago our very own Ian Smith was announced Dame of the Year for his amazing portrayal of Mother Goose.

Why not join us and do something fun and rewarding?

Putting on a show involves people from all walks of life and capabilities, so even if you don’t fancy treading the boards, we need help behind the scenes and backstage with programmes, scenery, props, costumes, make-up and hair, or front of house, selling tickets, serving refreshments, etc.

Our annual trophy for ‘outstanding contributions’ from our juniors was last year presented to a young lad who has worked tirelessly and enthusiastically in the background on our sound and lighting for a number of productions.

This year we have a new committee (see below).

To join in the fun contact a committee member or email: membership@barringtonplayers.org

The committee

Malcolm Eustice (chair, producer), Felicity Murray (vice chair, scenery and website), Richard Harker (treasurer) Claire Hart (marketing), Andrew Hale, Peter Buck.
