Fylde Coast Players are one of the longest running theatre Groups in the area. We have been established for 75 years and have been based in several locations over the years.
We are celebrating our 75th anniversary this year with a spectacular summer show and an event for members and friends.
We specialise in plays and have produced comedies, tragedies, dramas and farces. There is a wide range of ages in the society and everyone is encouraged to take part and do what they can. You don't have to act - there is always plenty to do in any production from building sets and props to making costumes and helping backstage during shows.
We have presented over 200 shows since our founding in 1947 and are looking forward to the next 200!
Rehearsals currently take place on Tuesday and Thursday evenings at St Annes Cricket Club, Highbury Rd West, Lytham St Annes FY8 2LY
Productions are usually staged at Lowther Pavilion which is on the seafront at Lytham. For more information about the Theatre please visit www.lowtherpavilion.co.uk/
And it's not just about Drama......
Fylde Coast Players is also a social society with various social events throughout the year, including barbecues, treasure hunts, lunches and of course a Christmas 'do'. Many members attend shows together and new members are always welcome. Members come from a huge range of ages (from early teens to late 80's) and backgrounds.
