Lerryn Players

Lerryn Players

What do we do?

Whatever we do, we do it together. From the beginning, both adults and children have been involved, and people from all sorts of backgrounds, with all sorts of talents, have worked together as a group to achieve what they wanted. Many of us, in the process, have developed talents we never even knew we had.

Learning new things is part of the fun.  As soon as we had a bit more money - and enough credibility to apply for grants - we sent adults on courses in stage costume and make-up, and provided on-site drama training for local children.

Come and join us!

We always welcome help, and not just on stage. We need all the other people without whom productions would never happen: people willing to try their hand at organising seating, applying make-up, sorting out refreshments, working with the backstage crew, joining the committee, supporting children's roles, helping with sound and lighting, playing the piano - or other instruments! - for us, writing scripts, making costumes, props, scenery etc. Please get in touch if you are interested; contact details are at the end.

Christmas 2024

The Lerryn Players

Would like to invite you to attend an evening of script reading to help us choose this year's Pantomime

on the 8th March at Lerryn Memorial Hall from 7pm.

We will be reading a selection of pages from 4 different pantomimes to determine our Christmas performance

for 2024.

So whether you are a performer, have an interest in backstage, love the theatre, are a parent or guardian of a

theatre loving child, or are just curious to learn more about us we would love to see you there.

No pressure to read, just an evening of fun and "He's Behind You!"
