You can view photos from our recent production of Inspector Drake and the Black Widow here.
An fun-packed, enchanting pantomime by Alan P Frayn
A fast paced tale full of hilarious comedy, “Behind yous” and baddies you can “Boo” at. A sure hit with all the family.
Photos coming soon…
Our first production of 2011 was Inspector Drake and the Perfekt Crime, a madcap comedy by David Tristram.
“The cast showed great comic timing, bringing the excellent script to life as they superbly played a collection of completely mad characters.”
Tracey Chidlow – Derby Telegraph
Our pantomime in 2010 was a fantastic production of Cinderella.
Our first production of 2010 was Breakfast with Jonny Wilkinson.
Each year we stage a full-length play and a pantomime, and sometimes put on a third production, as we are doing this year. If you would like to act, then make a lot of noise until the director asks you to read. Even if you do not get a part, there will be plenty of opportunities for you to read in, or help behind the scenes (this is always greatly appreciated). Don’t take it too seriously (we don’t), join in as much as you can, and above all have a cool and groovy time (as someone once said).
Please ask if there is anything you want to know. With the exception of the director (who is always grumpy and looks more bemused than anyone else), we are a friendly crowd and will be delighted to help.
As well as plays we also have a good social programme of theatre trips, meals and Parties!
If you are interested in joining Mickleover Players, either to perform or help out behind the scenes, please email us and a member of the group will contact you shortly. Include your phone number if you’d prefer us to give you a ring (it’s so much more friendly than this electronic stuff!)
