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
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.
