“Never knowingly over-rehearsed”
St James Players are members and friends of St James Church, Taunton. We enjoy using drama to bring a smile to the faces of our audiences, to enjoy friendship together and to raise funds for organisations in our community. As a group we have been in existence since 2008 when one of our church members had a vision for a full-scale pantomime and brought together a group of people of faith with an interest in fun, fellowship and fundraising. Over the past 14 years we have worked together to produce six biennial pantomimes, three murder mysteries, a passion play and four online presentations during Covid which can be viewed in the St James Players Playlist on the church YouTube page.
Here’s the latest online drama …
Over the years we have raised over £10,000 for local organisations.
In March 2022 we were able to perform our first live production for 2 years with a murder mystery (with food included) raising money for a local charity. Watch out for the next panto in January 2023!!!
Our membership is open, and embraces people with a variety of interests and talents (not everyone is an upfront type and we need people who can help with technical, catering, costume, publicity and a variety of behind the scenes stuff as well as performance types.
