The Chorlton Players are a non-profit-making theatre group established in 1963, so we’ve been going for over fifty years now. Our group has about forty members, and we put on five productions per season at the Parish Hall on St Werburgh’s Road, Chorlton.

We meet every Monday and Wednesday evening for rehearsals and are always keen to see new members. Even if you don’t fancy acting, we are always in need of all the other talents it takes to put productions on: backstage, costumes, front of house, set-building, audio-visuals, make-up, advertising etc. So if you are interested in taking any part in our shows, please get in touch.
