About Us

College Park Players is a small friendly amateur dramatic company which meets twice weekly at:

Burnt Ash Methodist Church Hall
Burnt Ash Hill
SE12 0QD

We produce two plays (in May and December) each year.

We perform a variety of plays, comedy, mystery, modern and period drama and some years, a Christmas pantomime. For more details see our past plays.

We meet throughout the year (except July and August and two weeks at Christmas) at the following times:

Monday evening (back hall)  8:00pm – 10:00pm
Wednesday evening (main hall) 8:00pm – 10:00pm

We also rehearse on the two Sunday afternoons immediately prior to a performance.

There is no joining fee or annual subscription. All we ask is a small weekly donation (currently £1.00) to cover refreshments (tea and biscuits).

Each production, the company nominates charities to whom the profits made are donated. Over the last 6 years we have donated £4,000 to the charities listed below:

Age Concern
British Heart Foundation
British Kidney Patient Association
Camden & Clerkenwell Cold Weather Shelter
Children's Holiday Fund
Demelza House
Hearing Dogs for the Deaf
Harrison Memorial Fund
Help The Aged
Lee Oasis
Lewisham Palliative Care Team
MacMillan Cancer Care
St. Christopher's Hospice
St. John's Ambulance
Stockwell Good Neighbours
The Diamond Club (Catford)

We also make donations to Burnt Ash Methodist Church without whose support and scenery storage facilities, we would not be able to function.

Each October we host a quiz night on their behalf, which is a very popular event. 

Profits from performances and proceeds from quiz nights have helped towards the cost of re-furbishing the kitchens, building the disabled toilets and installing the hearing loop system.
