About Rickmansworth Players

We are an award-winning community performing arts group based in Rickmansworth with a membership of over 100 members passionate about amateur theatre. Founded in 1944 we continue to put on at least two productions a year, usually a play in Spring at The Pump House in Watford, and a musical in late Autumn at the Watersmeet in Rickmansworth. Our members get involved in all aspects of theatre productions, from performing, costuming, make-up, set design/construction and directing.

In addition to putting on a spring and autumn production, we have a weekly choir and youth group, run regular theatre-related workshops as well as hire ourselves out for murder mystery and entertainments evenings. We also have an extensive props and wardrobe facility.

Formatting How-To

Bold & Italics

You can make text italics or make text bold by surrounding it with underscores or double asterisks.

    _italicized text_
    **bold text**

Lists + Paragraphs

Create a bullet list by simply beginning each line with a hyphen (aka "dash") and a space. Numbered lists are similar: begin each line with a digit, dot (aka "period"), and space. Here they are working in tandem with paragraphs:

    I've been doing musical theatre for a long time. Here's some of my favorite roles:

    - "Laurie" in _Little Women_, 2015
    - "Chad" in _High School Musical_, 2010
    - "Jimmy" in _Thoroughly Modern Millie_, 2007

    Notice that sweet empty line after my list, and also after each paragraph? They are important, as you will see in a moment.

    1. I will eat all your green M&M's.
    2. I never practice at home.
    3. Kissing scenes are the best.

Leave an Empty Line

After every paragraph or list (but not after each individual item in a list), press Enter twice. This double line break starts a new paragraph or list.


The text you want to be clickable (like this) is wrapped in square brackets, while the full web address, including the http:// is wrapped in parentheses. There is no space between the closing square bracket and the opening parenthesis, like so:
