About the Little Common & Bexhill Players


View Location of Little Common & Bexhill Players in a larger map

We perform pantomimes, plays, reviews, variety shows, music halls and murder mystery evenings.

We meet on Tuesday evenings from 7.30pm to 10.00 pm at Little Common Community Centre, Shepherds Close, Little Common TN39 4SQ    (see map, right).

We are very fortunate that the theatre where we perform is also our rehearsal venue. As far as possible, we produce our own costumes and scenery and we are keen to recruit more people into this aspect of our productions. We also source and lend props and costumes to other local groups. We write some of our material but also perform works by well known scriptwriters 

Join Little Common & Bexhill Players

Why not come and join in the fun? Our group welcomes new members both on stage - singers and non-singers, experienced or complete novices - and off-stage to help with costumes, scenery, props, lighting, sound and front-of-house.

In a typical year we put on three productions:

Pantomimes

Recent pantomimes include, Little Bo-Peep,Puss in Boots and Cinderella.

 Pantomime rehearsals begin late-September with performances mid-January.

Plays

Plays cover comedy, farce and serious drama and have included Haywire by Eric Chappell, Outside Edge by Richard Harris and Steel Magnolias by Robert Hardling, Visiting Hours by Richard Harris

Revues and Variety Shows

These combine songs, sketches, poems and dance with a common theme with titles such 'Simply the Best', '60's revisited.' and 'Pazzazz'. Our Olde Tyme Music Hall gives the audience the opportunity to join in the fun.

Murder Mystery Evenings

Our murder mystery evenings start with a short play (approx. 30 minutes) involving a murder and a cast of very suspicious characters - one of whom is the murderer. The audience then have the opportunity to question the suspects before each team tries to pick out the guilty party. These have included 'A Recipe for Murder', Murder at Michaelmas', 'The Silencing of Sheila Shepherd', ' The Sinister Six' and 'An eye for an eye'.
