Want to be a part of the back stage crew?

It's not just the actors that make a great show! Our hard working teams of back stage and front of house members are always looking for new hands to help out. Come along to a Third Thursday Social at the Impero Lounge or contact us for more information.


Portishead Players are a group of amateur drama enthusiasts based in Portishead, near Bristol. The group puts on four high quality productions a year, generally three plays and one musical or pantomime. 


We welcome 'all comers' whether just to enjoy a good night out at your local theatre or to become more involved front stage, back stage or just helping out. 


In addition, the group has raised considerable sums of money selling raffle tickets in aid of various charitable organisations.  Last season the total amount raised was £1,069.30.  The group appreciates the support given to these raffles, not only by buying the raffle tickets but also for the excellent prizes that are donated.  


Please browse the website where you will find details of the forthcoming productions by clicking What's On or more about getting involved by clicking Membership.


 As last year telephone booking will be available - see Box Office for details.
