Here at BH we have several photo albums in the archive of past Players’ productions, along with the the history of the children’s theatre, several programmes and photos. Many villagers are still living who participated in the productions and may have more photographic evidence in their own collections.
The first Players production was in the 1960s so there could well be another anniversary coming up! Meanwhile, the current Players are still going strong, and have even managed to stage a production outdoors, during the pandemic.
The history of theatre in Bishopsteignton is a great story that is still very much alive. If you are a past or present member of the Players, or are just interested in the story, or would just like to get stuck into those old photo albums and programmes, please let us know, and join our project team to bring this story to life.
