Welcome to Winslow Players

50th Anniversary Season
2017 - 2018

Watch out for a whirlwind in Winslow ....
... the forecast is fabulous in February and if you didn't catch a sneak peek at Winslow Christmas Fayre on Thursday 30th November of our forthcoming pantomime  then read how it's all coming together here

Some cast and crew for The Wonderful Wizard of Oz

Terry Pratchett takes Shakespeare's Macbeth and then turns it up until the knob comes off.  It's all there - a wicked duke and duchess, the ghost of the murdered king, dim soldiers, strolling players, a land in peril; and who stands between the Kingdom and destruction?  Three witches!  Granny Weatherwax, Nanny Ogg and Magrat Garlick.  

Our archives of the last 50 years will also be on display at every performance.

Followed by …
The Wonderful Wizard of Oz   -   1, 2, 3, February 2018
The New Year 2018 will bring our much loved family pantomime – based on the book written and directed by Fran Mortimer which should be a good one, as ever.

Then to end this milestone of a season we look forward to a splendid production of Trolls by the late great Peter Skellern …

Trolls by Peter Skellen   -   10, 11, 12 May 2018
Peter Skellen writes a comic tale of trolls, goblins and unlikely heroes promises musical entertainment for the whole family.   Much funnier and more appealing than the multi-coloured-tufty-haired ‘dolls’ of the 1970s!

Our archives of the last 50 years will also be on display at every performance.

Our Spring Production - May 2017

Farndale ladies present ...

The Farndale Avenue Housing Estate Townswomen's Guild Dramatic Society Murder Mystery

It was a brilliant night!  Well done to all involved!

You were all fantastic, well done!

A good evenings entertainment!  Well done everyone!

Just some of our audience reactions to our superbly produced 'Farndale' which was thoroughly enjoyed by all involved.  We are so lucky to have such talented members both on stage and behind the scenes - without whom it would all come crashing down. (oops, I think it did!)  

We are so energised for our forthcoming season - it is going to be a terrific year!  The plays that the committee have chosen are brilliant - hoping to involve as many of the Society as possible - and looking into the Players' archives of the last 50 years will be such a treat!

Looking forward to the next 50!
