I’ve always wanted to do…

Festival Players invites Directors and MDs to work with us!

Directors and/or MDs – do you have a musical you’d love to do?  Large or small, new or traditional? Let us know.

Historically Festival Players has been a committee-led society.  Meaning that, although we took suggestions for shows from our members, the committee chose the show each year and then sought a Director and MD to work on the production.  However, times are changing and we’d like to open things up and invite Directors and MDs – together or separately, new or known to us – to bring their pet projects to us to consider for inclusion in our future programme.

Festival Players’ ethos is to produce challenging and exciting musicals. Our programme usually includes a large scale musical each summer (May/June) and either a small scale musical or compilation (touring) show each winter.   However, even if you have an idea that wouldn’t naturally fit into one of those time slots, if you feel it would fit our ethos we’d still love to hear from you.

Our current programme is as follows:-

  • Winter 2019/20 – Merrily We Roll Along (Director: Cat Nicol, MD: Ana Sanderson)
  • Summer 2020 – ‘Kipps’ the new Half a Sixpence Musical
  • Winter 2020/21 – Touring Show – Format and content yet to be decided – we’re keen to hear ideas!
  • Summer 2021 –We’re currently in negotiation with rightsholders for this production
  • Winter 2021/22 – ?
  • Summer 2022 – ?

As you see, there are many slots to fill so please contact us if you have a passion project in mind.
