The Lichfield Players are a ‘not for profit’ philanthropic dramatic society based in the Lichfield area, Staffordshire, and have been performing since 1943.
We perform four times a year in the main auditorium and intimate studio theatre at the Lichfield Garrick Theatre. We are also very active within our local community and work closely with registered charity ‘Sense’ who provide support for deaf blind adults and children.
Our members come from all walks of life and no experience is required to audition. We are not just a society for actors; we welcome all members interested in backstage, lighting & sound, props, costume, set design and everything in between!

Before auditions, we hold a read-through that is open to members and non-members. This is not an audition evening, simply a reading of the play to familiarise yourself with the plot and characters in prep for the auditions at a later date.
Our auditions are welcome to all, regardless of age or experience. Rehearsals are usually Tuesday and Thursday nights in various locations around Lichfield. Audition pieces are made available of the night.
