Originally known as 'Mundesley Dramatic Society', and after several years of inactivity, The Players were re-formed in 1979 following an inspiration by Patrick and Joan Bonham and the late Tony Randall to utilize local talent.
Since that date, 63 productions have been performed by The Mundesley Players at The Coronation Hall and have included musicals, plays, music halls, carnivals, play readings and carol singing. Productions have taken place on Cromer Pier as well as at Sheringham Little Theatre and at various village halls for one-night performances.
We have always encouraged membership from a wide age range anywhere between 5 and 105 and our members come from all walks of life including teachers, nurses, plumbers, shop-keepers, taxi drivers and a dentist. The Junior Players have staged several productions with a cast consisting entirely of children. These shows have included The Wizard of Oz which has been produced twice, Alice in Wonderland and Joseph and his Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat.
Following Mundesley Players financial success over the years, new lighting equipment, stage materials, scenery and props were purchased by us, as well as an extensive wardrobe collection and stage extrensions. We are also proud to have been able to put on many fund-raising events for various charities.
The Mundesley Players are members of NODA, the Norfolk Operatic Dramatic Society, and are always well supported by our local representative.
