One of the leading non-professional theatre groups in the North East, The Castle Players have been providing theatrical entertainment since 1986. Based in the glorious market town of Barnard Castle, we have a yearly Summer production which is always outdoors (whatever the weather!) in the grounds of the Bowes Museum. We celebrate the darker days of January and February with our Winter Tour that travels around the local village halls, bringing theatre to you!

In amongst the two big calendar dates, we have a New Director initiative giving those members that want a chance to direct to put on a performance in October/November at The Witham. Rehearsed Readings happen throughout the year too, so there is always something going on to be involved with. 

With that in mind, if you are looking to get involved, then do! We thoroughly welcome new members in a huge variety of roles on and off stage. Please take a look at our 'Join Us' section to see what we do in more detail and get in touch - we are a friendly bunch. Join our Mailing List to be kept in the know with what we are up to and if you want priority booking for our Summer Production (with a guarantee of covered seating!) then Become a Friend
