About Us


The Lindley Players are an amateur theatre group who are a registered charity.


Technically speaking, an "amateur" actor is anyone who does not accept, or is not offered, money for their services. Whilst this is true of the Lindley Players, it is also true to say that the Players' mission is to strive to approach their productions in a professional way. 'Professional behaviour' (as defined by Scottish theatre-maker and writer Andrew Mckinnon) is measured by:

“your self-discipline, collaborative skills, level of commitment, and by your ability to solve problems creatively, making constructive use of available help and guidance. It is taken for granted that you will always be punctual and prepared and conduct yourself maturely and thoughtfully in rehearsal and performance. These are the minimum conditions for the creation of satisfactory theatre work."


The Lindley Players bring a wide range of quality plays and shows to the Theatre; from hard edged drama to pantomime. We are fortunate in having a talented Youth Group whose members regularly appear in our productions. However, we are always looking for new members, not only actors/actresses, but members for back stage, lighting, sound, make-up, costumes, bar staff and box office to list just a view of the activities.


Members receive a monthly Newsletter, members discount on tickets, and have the opportunity to be involved in all of the activities of the Society including the many social events.


A coffee morning is held at the Theatre every Saturday between 10am and 12noon.


If you would like to become a member please contact the membership secretary, or come and see us on a Saturday morning.
