  • 01/05 - On the 10th June we have been invited to take part in a charity show for the Hospice of St Francis at the Vyne Theatre in Berkhamstead where we will be performing along side Just A Cappella and the Berkhamstead Ukulele Random Players.  Tickets are priced at 12.50 and are available via the booking officea at www.vynetheatre.co.uk or by calling 03336663366.  All proceeds will go to the hospice so would be lovely to see some of regular audience come along to support this.
 
  • 04/04 - It is with regret that two of our members have had to pull out of the current show and will be saying goodbye to the group, as they are leaving for pastures new.  Vicki Willingale, who has been in and around the group since she was a very young girl, and her partner Martin Jones, have decided to start a new chapter in their lives.  They will be both be very sorely missed and we wish them all the very best for the future. 
This does also mean we are now very short on men (as well as having some very short men), so if you're male and fancy treading the boards, please do get in touch.
  • 08/02 - Our next show will be earlier this year, taking place towards the end of June and will only run for 4 nights due to a few changes in the band.  Andrew Edrupt, our regular pianist, will sadly not be here as he is spending some time in Brazil, so James Pritchard will step up to the plate along with Ian Payne who will (finally) get off the stage for the bulk of the show and play guitar.  The show will be called "Downtown to Motown" and will feature songs from the 50's, 60's and 70's.  Should promise to be a very lively show.
 
  • 05/02 - Another very well received show in the bag.  Thankyou once again for all your wonderful support and kind feedback.  We also raised an amazing 570 for Headway via our raffle, so thans for all the contributions  and donations of prizes.

WHO ARE WE?

We are an adult theatrical group, over 16's, specialising in revue style shows, based in Hemel Hempstead. The group began in the mid 1970's and has been going strong ever since.  Please take a look around our site where you will find ticket information, links to movie clips, information about cast members and much more (see more links at the bottom of this page).  We are always on the lookout for talented performers and people to help out on show nights, so why not get in touch via lgplayers@sky.com if you would like more information.   We perform 2 shows each year, running for 5 nights each, in January and July.  Our shows are a great night out and we sit the audience at tables rather than in rows of chairs so you can bring your own refreshments (including alcohol) and have a fun night with us. We include a raffle during each performance with all proceeds going to a pre determined charity.

We can be contacted at lgplayers@sky.com
