The present St Gregory Players have been entertaining the village for more than thirty years, following in the footsteps of an earlier group which disbanded.
Our programme varies according to the availability of members for the many different tasks involved in mounting a production.

Besides actual actors, we need a good backstage team, the unsung heroes of a production who make it all possible.
We also present Murder Mysteries, which are not only good fun, but also a good way of raising some money for the group and other organisations in the village.

Our productions include full length plays, One Act plays which we enter into the Somerset County Drama Festivals and pantomimes and we recently took on the challenge of a full scale musical.

We belong to the Somerset Fellowship of Drama, and enter our plays in their competitions, so receiving valuable criticism from the adjudicators which helps us to raise our production standards.

Our former youth drama group was enthusiastically and ably led by Liz Brown, to achieve many successes over the past years including winning both the County and the Five Counties Drama Festivals for many years. And they were one of the first two youth plays ever to be invited to the British All Winners Festival!!
These successes were well deserved by all those who took part and consistently worked so hard. Unfortunately, the Youth Drama is not operating at the moment.

If you want to know more, either to hire us for a murder mystery, or even join us in putting one together, please give us a call. We are always looking for new faces – young and not so young – to be brave and come up on stage with those of us already daft enough to do so; or anyone willing to help out in other ways – from designing posters/leaflets/flyers to front of house work, or lighting, sound, wardrobe and other backstage stuff.

Next Production

We are delighted to announce that our next production in October 2016 will be “Wyrd Sisters”, a dramatisation of one of Terry Pratchett’s best known Discworld novels.
Some of you may know the Discworld – but if you don’t, it’s a madcap fantasy comedy with a touch of literature for good measure. And the Wyrd Sisters bear more than a passing resemblance to the witches in Macbeth – with touches of Blackadder
Auditions will be in the village hall on Sunday  12th June at 2pm
Rehearsals will start in late August with the performances during half term week beginning 23rd October – number to be decided.
There are small parts, bigger parts and non-speaking parts, an ideal production both for those wanting to have a go at a drama and more experienced thespians.
