Haslemere Players was in existence as long ago as the 1890’s but was officially formed in 1905 making it the longest running amateur dramatics society in the local area. Until 1961 we performed only Gilbert and Sullivan but since then the range of shows produced has broadened to include a huge variety of productions from the more traditional My Fair Lady, Oklahoma! and Half a Sixpence to more modern pieces such as Chess, Titanic the Musical and Sweeney Todd.
The Flowers that Bloom in the Spring, a book written by Fay Foster MBE documenting the first 100 years of the society’s history from 1899 to 1999 is available by contacting our secretary, Pamela Depledge via our contact us page. Fay has continued to painstakingly maintain records of the society’s history since the publication of her book and full details of our history from 2000 – 2015 can be found in the documents below which include our shows, cast lists, production teams, backstage and front of house personnel, matrons, orchestra members, patrons & life members and details of the society’s office holders and committee members. We would like to thank Fay for her dedication and the many hours she puts in to maintaining these records for us.
