Would you like to join the Ditcheat Players?

You don’t need to be slightly mad but it probably helps.

Canterbury Tales 2

Don’t worry, not every production requires actors to wear marigold rubber gloves on their feet!

Babes in the wood cast


Naturally we are always looking out for people who want to act on stage but every production also relies on backstage crews as well as those helping front of house.  Our members design, build and decorate our stage sets, organise and operate our lighting and sound systems, design programmes and posters, make costumes and props… the list goes on and on!


n our control room  we have a programmable DMX lighting desk. We also have a 16 channel Yamaha sound desk.  Sound effects are often created using Audacity software and played out via a laptop using MIXX.

Achieving special effects sometimes requires a great deal of creative and lateral thinking.
