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:

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.
