Who Are Radlett Theatre Company?

Radlett Theatre Company are a creative and enthusiastic group of amateur dramatic actors with a desire to produce shows that are both fun and exciting to be a part of.

Our aim is to give everyone a go, so if you don't manage to land the leading role in one of our Spring or Autumn Shows, we also run One Act productions and what we call Radio Plays (rehearsed readings) to give everyone a chance to act or try something new. If you want to learn to run a sound desk, be a stage manager or direct for the first time, then Radlett Theatre Company could be the place for you!

Our Radio Plays are like rehearsed readings, so if you're new to drama, nervous about acting or simply can't remember those pesky lines any longer, then Radio Plays are a great way to still be involved in a performance... only with the book!

And of course we have monthly Play Readings where you can come and join us for an evening reading or listening to others read through a play over a beer or two in our local.

We're always open to suggestions, no matter how daft they may sound! So if you have an idea for a play then don't be shy, tell us and we'll see what we can do.

At Radlett Theatre Company we welcome everyone, experienced or not,
just come and GIVE IT A GO!

Radlett Drama

Our Roots

The Radlett Players were born in 1959 from the coming together of two separate Radlett societies, the St Christopher Players and The Others; regularly presenting two plays a year in the Spring and the Autumn.

In 1970 the Players presented their first 'Olde Tyme Music Hall' as a means of raising funds and also a way for new members to gain experience. The Music Hall was extremely popular and back then became something of a Radlett tradition.

In 1970 the Players presented their first 'Olde Tyme Music Hall' as a means of raising funds and also a way for new members to gain experience. The Music Hall was extremely popular and back then became something of a Radlett tradition.

Up until 1998 all our productions were performed in the old Radlett Hall, which had formerly been a cinema, and it became our ‘home’ up until the building of the Radlett Centre, a modern theatre space where we have performed all our shows up to the present day.

In the first few years of the new century we took to performing outdoor productions in the beautiful surroundings of the Walled Garden in Shenley, presenting a 'Midsummer Miscellany'  as well as Shakespeare in June 2007.

From then until 2017 we ran a steady production line of shows twice a year at The Radlett Centre, but the audience drift towards musicals meant a decline in appetite for plays as audiences became less and costs became ever more increasing.

In November 2017 the decision was made to re-launch The Radlett Players as a new, leaner and more dynamic group playing to perhaps smaller houses, but with far less overheads, in an attempt to increase the popularity of amateur theatre... and Radlett Theatre Company was born.
