Ballinger Players is a small community group consisting of approximately 15 members, of which about half are regular actors.
Ballinger is a hamlet in the Chilterns, midway between Chesham and Great Missenden in Buckinghamshire. Members of the group come mainly from the Chesham, Amersham, Wendover and High Wycombe area. Ballinger Players rehearse and perform in Ballinger War Memorial Hall and the group dates back to the Hall\’s inception in the 1920's.
The group stages either one or two productions a year. If you fancy a go at:
Sound & Lighting
or even just making the tea, having a new hobby and coming to our social events you would be made extremely welcome! No previous experience is necessary.
Over the years, our performances have included:
Seasons Greetings; The Enquiry; Sweeney Todd Shock 'n\’ Roll Show; Absent Friends; Play On; Confusions; Dangerous Corner; The Secret Diary of Adrian Mole; Key for Two; No Time for Fig Leaves; Steel Magnolias; Shirley Valentine; Blithe Spirit; Trial and Error, Murder in Play, A Kiss on the Bottom, Trivial Pursuits, Dead Ringer, Curtains, The Dresser, Spectre Over London, Natural Causes and The Odd Couple.
Our productions usually run for three nights. Part of the 'Ballinger Experience' is that our seating is laid out around tables, rather than rows, and the audience is encouraged to bring their own refreshments.
This 'supper format' could mean people bringing anything from a bag of crisps and a Coke to a three-course hamper complete with wine and candelabra, or a Chinese takeaway.
