At the Dorrington Players AGM on 14 January the proposal to change the name of Dorrington Players to Stretton Players was passed. We feel that the new name more accurately reflects our connection to the Strettons and helps newcomers to recognise us as a group based in Church Stretton rather than in Dorrington. The name and address of this page will be changed to in the near future.

Stretton Players, formerly Dorrington Players, is the local drama group in Church Stretton. Our first production was in 1931. We usually put on two productions each year in May and November. In addition we hold play readings, workshops, theatre visits and social events throughout the year.

Next production

Come along on Wednesday 10 February to the Jubilee Room at Mayfair (7.15 for 7.30) to listen to a read through of our next production – The Real Inspector Hound by Tom Stoppard.

We are always looking for new members who wish to get involved either on or off the stage. We are particularly interested in encouraging younger people to become involved in acting!

 You don’t have to be an expert…Enthusiasm, commitment, time, and ordinary everyday skills are enough to get you started. Everyone has a hidden talent, so come to us to find it! A desire to learn and share knowledge will be useful in any section of the theatre.

Besides acting and production, there are always jobs to do both…
Lighting, sound, set design and building, stage management, props, wardrobe, etc.and

Ticketing, front of house, events, publicity, etc.
