St Peter’s Players is a small, friendly group committed to producing theatre which is enjoyable and interesting for both our members and our audiences.

All are welcome to participate either backstage or “in front” without audition. We have no fixed roles within the group and as such all members have the opportunity to act, work back stage or direct, for example, if they so choose.

All are welcome. While not directly connected to the church, we maintain close links with both the parish and community of Wolvercote. Even so, we are not exclusive to Wolvercote with current membership extending from High Wycombe to deepest West Oxfordshire.

St. Peter’s Players sprang first into life in the 1930s and were formally constituted in 1955 with the then Vicar of Wolvercote, Michael Ottaway, as Chairman, a post he held until 1981. Since the first production “Mr Pim Passes By”, many feet have trod the boards in dramas, comedies and musicals. We now produce three shows a year in Wolvercote, including a musical show at Christmas when we try to involve the local children. We also participate in local drama festivals where productions and individual performances are often commended.

  1. To the Artistic Director,

    I’ve written this hilarious farce that you can fully download for free on my website.
    It’s title is Lofty Larceny.
    This play is being staged in Canada and in Switzerland. Be the first UK company to stage it.
    The characters are quite original, the storyline is full of action and there are elaborate visual numbers.
    This is the play people want to see. This is the play actors want to take part in. This is the play directors want to tackle. See for yourself!
    Any comments are welcome.
