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

Our aim to give everyone a go, and so if you don't manage to land the leading role in one of our main shows, we also run smaller 'Sideshows' to give everyone a chance to act or try something new. So if you want to learn to run a sound desk, or be a stage manager, or direct for the first time, then these smaller shows are exactly the place for you. Everyone has to start somewhere! 

We also use 'Sideshows' for rehearsed readings (radio plays really), so if you're nervous about acting or simply can't remember the lines any longer, then these are a great way to still be involved in a performance... only with the book!

And of course we have lots of 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.

At Radlett Players we welcome everyone, experienced or not, just come and Give it a GO!

A little history

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.

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.

We are always on the look out for new people of all ages and skill levels to join us.  So if you want to give it a go in Acting, Directing, Backstage, Front of House or just to join in the fun as a supporter, get in touch!

In addition to our various productions we have regular social events, including quiz evenings, play readings and much more.


We've got lots of exciting plans for the coming year in 2018, so why not get in touch and Give it a Go!


We are affiliated to Noda, The National Operatic and Dramatic Association.
