Wootton Country Players


If you are interested in helping out please contact us - you can find our details on the about us page, or you can look at our past productions (not all of which are online, we’ve been going since 1977!).

On our news page you can keep up with what’s happening or you can go to our Facebook page and/or sign up to our email list using the link at the bottom of the page.

We’re always looking for new adult members, on-stage, back-stage, front-of-house or helping with props, scenery, costumes, painting, music and technical.

Why not come along and see what’s happening; we’re normally rehearsing on Tuesdays and Thursdays starting at 8 pm, at Wootton Village Hall.

Quick details...

Previously: A Quadruple Bill

Our previous production was three four “one act” plays.

Sparkling Pesticide” by James Leyland. Three women decide to murder their husbands in this ridiculously hilarious play with multiple twists.

Unhappy Medium” by Sue Coussy & James Leyland. Three members of a local Ladies Guild get more than they bargain for when a psychic booked for one of their evenings turns out to be uncannily accurate in this "dead silly" comedy.

These two plays are published by Peninsula Productions.

Pinky Promise” written by Emily Kirkup and performed by the players Youth Section. The action is set in a school where the children think they have put a curse on their teacher.

Pool (no water)” by Mark Ravenhill. A bohemian physical drama piece, hypnotic and razor sharp, tearing up the ideals of friendship and art exposing a deep vein of envy.


Coming next: Alternative Race Night 2

Alternative Race night is back!

Come and join us on Saturday 24th June at 7:30 PM for an "alternative race night" at Wootton Village Hall. All the fun of the races recreated live in the hall and not a video in sight!

Tickets including a food platter are £8, or you can reserve a whole table of eight for £64 - bring all your friends so you can sit together!

Races are not the video type but an interactive race - we set out a race course and each race has 6 jockeys (£2 paid for entry), the riders are on chairs and wind the wooden horse in to the finishing line.

* "Bookies" with cashiers taking tote bets at 50p a punt

* Table Quiz during the meal

* Raffle

* Prizes for the winning jockeys/horse owners

* Licensed bar until 11:30 PM

* "Own" a horse for £2

* Sponsor a race for £20
