Watlington Young Players met for the first time in November 2011. 20 Junior and 20 Seniors Members enrolled and those numbers have remained pretty steady since. The Junior section is for 7 to 11 year olds and the Senior section is for 12 to 16 year olds.
We meet regularly on Friday evenings, usually between 6 and 8pm (although these times vary when in production).
We try to encourage an interest and an experience of all aspects of theatre both performing and working behind the scenes.
Children in Need 2013
Everybody had great fun to raise money for Children In Need this year. The members had various stalls which most of them organised themselves. These included sweets in a jar, a memory game, a treasure hunt, a sale of Children In Need merchandise and of course, a raffle.
However the hit of the evening was Hugh and Jane's Fruit Machine! We also sold cakes and refreshments.
At the end of the evening the opening numbers of "Honk!" were presented as a taster for the show next April.
In total £260.80 was raised!
