Banbury Cross Players produce four full length plays a year, performed at The Mill Arts Centre. In addition we regularly take part in Drama Festivals in Oxfordshire. At our annual Season Preview each Autumn we present our forthcoming programme to Members and Gold Card Holders and perhaps perform a short one-act play. This is sometimes the play performed at the Drama Festival which many in the audience will have been unable to see previously. We take part in Banbury’s Canal Day each year and have performed at other interesting locations such as Wroxton Abbey, Upton House, Sulgrave Manor and The RSC Courtyard at Stratford. For each of our plays we hold a members’ audition and a separate open audition to encourage people from outside the group to come along and show their skills. Many new members start via an open audition.
