Meet the Partington Players Theatre – Glossop
The Partington Players – Glossop’s own live theatre. Established in 1954 as Glossop Repertory Company, and in 1957 moving to the present address – the old Liberal Club, skilfully converted into a charming and intimate venue of 120 seats.
We present a week-long run of 6 plays each season including a pre-Christmas Pantomime. However, over the years we have presented a vast range of plays embracing a great variety of theatrical styles – comedy, tragedy, farce, classical, modern and avant-garde. In several cases we have given the amateur premieres of recently released plays.
For example Lee Hall’s version of ‘A Servant to Two Masters’, Martin McDonagh’s ‘The Beauty Queen of Leenane’. Furthermore, specially commissioned translations of classics ‘Uncle Vanya’ and ‘A Doll’s House’. We are currently playing to capacity audiences and receiving critical acclaim. Also, some of our players going on to work in the professional sphere.
Each year, early in July, we host the Partington Theatre One-act Play Festival which attracts entries from all over the area and far beyond. This is a great opportunity to see a wide range of productions including excerpts from the classics and new writing from adult and youth theatres. A different programme every night!
We also host a number of visiting companies including Glossopera and JSLN International Ballet Company.
Our lively social events calendar includes quizzes, themed evenings and parties.
We’re always on the lookout for new members; actors, directors, technical crew, front-of-house and backstage helpers.
