The Heath Players at Box Hill

The Heath Players are a small amateur dramatic society based at the Box Hill Village Hall, where we have been putting on one or two or more productions every year since the present village hall was built in 1972.

Past productions have included classics by Shakespeare, Coward and Shaw, as well as works by modern playwrights, pantomime and competitive pieces.  The high point in the society's history was undoubtedly in 1987, when it won the British Festival of One Act Plays with a production of Act 2 of "Private Lives" by Noel Coward.

In more recent years, the group has entered plays for the Leatherhead Drama Festival, with both Act 3 of "Plaza Suite" by Neil Simon and "A Respectable Funeral"  by Jimmy Chinn winning acclaim.  Currently, theatre suppers are very popular with our local audience.

The Heath Players meet most Tuesdays at 8pm in the Boxhill Village Hall, and the Company is always delighted to welcome new members
