Buy tickets!
Welcome to The Crouch End Players' Blog. 

We are a friendly, dedicated and enthusiastic amateur theatre group based in London N8. 
We have just finished an extremely successful run of our pantomime – Sleeping Beauty – and our next production will be announced very soon.
We hope you will find any information you need relating to membership or productions here.  Follow us to receive our news and updates, or join us on Facebook  or Twitter or join our mailing list by emailing us here.

We meet every Wednesday evening, with additional Sunday afternoon rehearsals leading up to a production.

Our aim is to perform at least three productions per year, one of which is a large-scale pantomime. We work very hard,  but also have a lot of fun. We pride ourselves on our rapidly growing reputation for delivering consistently high-quality, professional-standard productions in a local setting.

We welcome performing and non-performing members of the group. As well as actors, people to help with costume, sound, musicians and designers are all made welcome.

We are always in need of active supporters to help run our performances and events (ticket sales, bar staff, etc).

Please keep in touch!

The 1950s season

This year, the Crouch End Players are mounting a 1950s season, with a variety of productions and entertainments spanning the whole decade, from an early 50s crime thriller, to a late 50s rock 'n' roll spectacular, and lots of other projects set to take place throughout 2011.

The first production Search by Night, a 1950s crime thriller by Victor Lucas, took place in May to critical acclaim.

A brief off-theme outing took place in August, when we revived our Putting On the Blitz wartime show at the request of the Beefeaters at the Tower of London, and we all spent a fantastic evening singing within the historic fortress. Luckily we were all let out of the Tower the morning after and we are now in rehearsal for a musical entertainment entitled Rock Around the Clocktower, which will take place at The Music Palace, Tottenham Lane on Friday Sept 30th and Saturday 1st October.

Rock Around the Clocktower is a sparkling 1950s entertainment which incorporates classic rock n roll songs and dance. Based around a local talent show, love is in the air, the Americans are in town, the night is young, and anything might happen. Travel with us back in time to see the music-studded drama unfold... As with all our events in this season, 1950s dress is most welcome, and you will also have a chance to take to the dancefloor yourself. (And the bar's open all evening too!) Tickets are onsale now at wegottickets.com and are also available (cash sales only) at Officedog in Topsfield Parade, Crouch End. Previous musical entertainments have sold out, so make sure you buy your ticket soon...

We look forward to seeing you at one of our future shows.

Panto time!

Only a few more days to go until we open with our spectacular pantomime "Cinderella" We will be performing from Wednesday 12th until Saturday 15th January at Greig City Academy, Hillfield Avenue, N8.
We have a busy weekend coming up, with plenty of work to do,  building sets and scenery,  setting up lighting and sound, final rehearsals with the band, etc.

It will all be worth it, as we transform Greig City Academy into the magical land of Ruritania and the Royal Palace, complete with fairies, princes, ugly sisters and our lovely heroine, Cinderella.

We hope you will come along and join in the fun!
