Welcome to Rossendale Players!

Welcome to the website of the Rossendale Players. Our home is the New Millennium Theatre at Waterfoot in the Rossendale Valley. We are a small community theatre company and a registered charity. Our membership is made up of volunteers from around Lancashire and comprises enthusiastic and talented individuals who together form a formidable team achieving many awards and accolades for our productions.

We produce around 5 plays each season and vary our repertoire each year, with more adventurous productions, both technically and theatrically all the time. Our compact stage and our homely but ample auditorium host quality shows to a varied, appreciative and hugely loyal audience, many of whom regularly travel some distance to attend.

The website is currently still under development, and will change frequently. Check back for new content.
