About Us

The Didsbury Players amateur dramatic society was formed in 1961 as 'Celesta Players' by a group of local people who wished to stage theatre productions.  An an Annual General Meeting in 2012, the group's members voted to change the group's name to The Didsbury Players to reflect its part in the local community.

In the early days, the Didsbury Players had a permanent home at St Luke's Church Hall in West Didsbury.  More recently, the group have staged performances at the East Didsbury Methodist Church Hall, which has a purpose built stage and can accommodate audiences of over 100 people.  The group also uses the Didsbury Cricket Club as a performance venue for smaller plays which lends itself to a more intimate setting.

The group normally have three productions a year: pantomime, spring play and summer review with rehearsals for the Pantomime beginning in early autumn.

We warmly welcome new members who want to give drama a go or help out with stage management.
