A Bit of History
Wragby Players was born in 1974 when Tony Neale, a local music and drama enthusiast got together with a group of likeminded friends and formed the drama group. Their first production was "Summer Salad", staged at the Town Hall in Wragby.
We have continued to be fortunate in having access to the well equipped facilities of Wragby Town Hall which has a large stage, two dressing rooms and a lighting/sound box.
Being a non-profit making organisation, all monies raised go towards the cost of our next productions. We also support the local community and both local and national charities in a number of ways.
The Ruby Slipper - our 40th Anniversary Production in 2014
We regularly run drama workshops and organise social events for both adults and children, over the age of 8, and these provide both fun and enjoyment as well as improving personal skills.
We try to put on at least two productions a year, one of which usually involves our Young Players. Throughout the years we have performed over 75 shows, including musicals, pantomimes, straight dramas, comedies, old time music hall, murder mystery evenings, Young Players productions, fund raising events and annual "Open Church" celebration weekends.
We celebrated our 40th Anniversary in 2014 with a selection of short extracts from previous productions. Some of our most notable successes over the years have been:: The Wizard of OZ:: Blythe Spirit:: The Sound of Music:: Charlie and the Chocolate Factory:: Daisy Pulls It Off:: The Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe::
Running the Group
We have a hardworking, dedicated, elected committee of four officers and between four and eight other members. The committee meets approximately once a month and we hold our Annual General Meeting in July.
