Here's a little something to get you in the...

Acting people out there, BCP need your help!

"Audience with Murder" by Colin Wakefield and Roger Leach is our Autumn production which Terry Gallager is about to start Directing.

The Play, a multi roled 4...

We meet every Tuesday evening at The Mill Art Centre, which has its own Theatre in Banbury BCPtheatre for workshops, play readings, discussions and general meetings. Come and join us – you’ll be glad you did! This is in addition to 4 full scale plays per year.

Banbury Cross Players produce four full length plays a year, performed in the theatre at The Mill Arts Centre, but there’s much more. We regularly take part in Drama Festivals in Oxfordshire and have an annual Season Preview event and have performed at other interesting locations such as Wroxton Abbey, Upton House, Sulgrave Manor, Abbey Theatre in Abingdon and The RSC Courtyard at Stratford.

We have a thriving social scene outside of our productions and events – going to see other shows, taking part in events run by other societies. Regardless of what shows are in production, we meet every Tuesday evening, 8pm at The Mill Arts Centre where we read plays, run workshops, hold quizzes, attend lectures from visiting speakers and generally talk theatre to like-minded people.

In addition to actors we always need technicians with skills and enthusiasm in wood and metalwork, sound and lighting, and also props and costumes. People with these skills will need to work closely with other members of the company and understand that the demands of different productions are infinitely variable.
