THE PHOENIX PLAYERS Drama Group in Swindon

The Phoenix Players are one of the leading drama groups in the town with a string of successes to our name. To date we have presented over 200 productions and in September 2004 The Phoenix Players celebrated their 50th anniversary.

There are some 40 members of the Players covering a wide age range. Some are keen actors and others prefer to be out of the spotlight covering the many back stage tasks that are so necessary to have a successful production. The Players all share the same love of the theatre and their aim is to provide quality entertainment for their loyal patrons whilst being involved in the activities they so much enjoy. Being a members of the Players is like being part of an extended family and there have been a few occasions where members who have left the area have actually moved back simply because they missed being part of the company.

The Players present three productions each season ranging from comedy to classics and also enjoy a number of social activities during the year.

Would-be members can be assured of a warm welcome, so if you have an interest in the theatre, whether this be in front of or behind the footlights, we would love to hear from you.
