The Players have been in Market Weighton since 1947 and have staged one or more productions every year since then.

Although our actors take a bow, a great deal of work goes on literally “behind the scenes” to bring every production successfully to stage. This backstage crew is in addition to those “front of house” that ensure your comfort and safety. We also design and make the scenery and props, get sponsorship and publicity, and carry out a variety of other essential tasks.

As you may have gathered, The ‘Players are a friendly group of people with common interests – not just in entertaining audiences but also helping other local groups financially through donations.

We are also committed to bringing the dramatic arts to young people in our area. Weighton Young Players (WYPS) is a new and exciting Community Youth Theatre which started in October 2016 and aims to give young people (8-17_ the opportunity to act and learn all about the theatre.

If you would like to get involved in any way with any of our future productions – or just be one of our supportive “friends” please do let us know.
