Welcome to the Amateur Players of Sherborne website. Here you can find information about our forthcoming theatre productions, our history, how to join us or get put onto our mailing list, and how to obtain tickets for the play you want to see. In fact, anything you need to know.

Established for over 75 years, Amateur Players of Sherborne, known to members and friends as APS, are a well-known part of the Sherborne arts scene. We present at least two plays every year, usually in March and November/December in the Digby Hall, Sherborne, but occasionally also in the summer at other venues.

Although we are mostly amateurs, we aim to stage productions of the highest possible standard of excellence and professionalism and our efforts are usually well rewarded. Audiences are highly appreciative of our hard work, and over the years our productions have won a number of awards, the most recent being the Rosebowl's John Coe Award for Best Dramatic Production 2010-2011 for our production of The Wind in the Willows, in which Adrian Thorpe also won the


John Lewis Award for the Best Actor for his performance of Toad. This year (2015) we we also awarded the Peter Wheeldon Trophy, presented by NODA to groups that are truly amateur.

We hope you will enjoy browsing our website and we look forward to hearing from you or seeing you at our plays.
