The Hempstead Players
About Us

Welcome to our theatre group "The Hempstead Players".

We are a new collective of people, here to offer our community an exciting and entertaining range of plays, shows, workshops and theatrical games. If you are looking for some  great evenings out, within the community, we have something for everyone. We are seeking new members.

If you're 18 years old or over, thinking of 'treading the boards' for fun, interested in helping backstage  or just want to "join the group", we want to hear from you. Anyone can take part, no matter your skills or talents  ... everyone is welcome!


We are a new and growing group of people from different walks of life, all sharing a common interest in drama and the arts.  We all felt that Hempstead and the local areas had been missing out on its own community based theatre for a very long time, so we formed  "The Hempstead Players" to provide entertainment and fun for all.

We  hold Social Events, our Club Night, every 1st and 3rd Wednesday of the month from 8.00pm - everyone is invited to join in the fun and make some new friends.
