Into drama? We are an amateur dramatic society (Amdram) based in Bierton nr Aylesbury, Buckinghamshire
The Jubilee Players were founded in 1961 at a time when most villages of any size in Buckinghamshire had their own amateur dramatic society. Now it is one of the few that maintain a regular programme of productions.
The Jubilee Players take their name from the Jubilee Hall in Bierton, our main venue for performances.
The aims and objectives of the society "shall be the study and performance of plays to foster an interest in the art of drama and all the funds shall be applied for the furtherance of these aims and objectives and for the charity as agreed by the society"
Each year, the Jubilee Players present:
A Christmas Pantomime
This provides the opportunity for younger members (10 to 18 years) to showcase their talents, taking part often in the principal roles. The cast can normally be large so there's plenty of chance for smaller parts and always the opportunity to have a sing-song.
Older members get the chance to let their hair down and misbehave a little playing a dame or a baddie.
The panto is often a classic tale with a modern spin, but we have put on original themed productions too; 2003 saw Jubilee Players member Adrian Ripley write 'Panto Goes wild West'.
Each Spring we put on a more serious production; a light hearted comedy, farce or drama.
We also put on special occasion events which involve the society getting amongst the community to perform short productions, often aimed at reaching members of the community who find it hard to come to us.
