About The Monday Players
The Monday Players drama society is based at Escrick, a small village, about seven miles south of York City centre. Our venue, recently refurbished, is the village hall, where we have produced live theatre for the last twenty years.
Members come from wide area, ten miles radius or more, including York and Selby, but we also have the fellowship of family, friends and many other supporters who like to be involved not only in productions but also social events such as theatre trips, Summer garden party and Christmas celebrations.
We are a welcoming, enthusiastic and supportive group; we have high standards of performance and production; we enjoy immensely the recreational benefits of our activities.
In December 2013 we celebrated our twentieth anniversary and fortieth production since our foundation by revisiting our first production, when a small group decided to perform Season’s Greetings, by Alan Ayckbourn; the stage, set and technical effects were very modest indeed. Since 1993 we have prospered, developed and maintained our stage craft, technical expertise and the acquisition of equipment, costume, props and furniture. We stage two productions a year – May and November – and enjoy the patronage of many people in the area.
JOIN THE MONDAY PLAYERS
WHY NOT JOIN US?
Some members enjoy performing; others enjoy being part of our production teams; some enjoy both! Every production provides opportunities to act, to get involved in set construction, become part of the stage crew, to assist with transport, lighting, sound, special effects, publishing, front of house or indeed, helping to make a welcome cuppa at one of our rehearsals.
Rehearsals take place on Sunday and Monday evenings and our two production dates fall in May and November each year. Generally members are sixteen years or more but there can be exceptions.
If you are interested in becoming involved, in whatever way, with The Monday Players, please contact our Chair, Nicki Clay (firstname.lastname@example.org) and you will be warmly invited to meet Monday Players ‘at work’ and decide for yourself.
