Welcome to Hook Players

Ahoy there me hearties!


This year’s Hook Village Panto will be Treasure Island by acclaimed author Ben Crocker. Hook Players put on Ben’s Beauty and the Beast in 2015 –  we were so impressed that we read more of his scripts and this one stood out.

Not  only will we have Jim Hawkins, Squire Trelawney, Long John Silver and lots of pirates, but a force to be reckoned with – Smugglers’ Cove Womens’ Institute! Oh – and a parrot. We mustn’t forget the parrot!

Rehearsals are now under way

The performance dates  will be 29-30th November and 6-7th December. (Evening performances on the Fridays and Saturdays, plus a child-friendly afternoon matinee on the Saturdays.) More Information

Yo-ho-ho and a bottle of rum! (Rum is not normally available at the Hook Players bar, but you never know what Long John may persuade the committee to sanction !)

Join in the fun!

It’s not all about being on the stage.

So much goes on backstage including set design, painting and building, making costumes, make-up, sound, lighting and special effects, gathering props or simply helping with the front-of-house on performance nights. If you are interested in getting involved, even if you don’t see yourself treading the boards,  please email . There is something for everyone.

If you can’t get involved this time, then please buy a ticket, sit back and enjoy the show.

Play Readings

We are actively seeking plays for future productions and holding play readings, where members read through possible scripts. If you are interested in attending, please send your details via for more information. These play readings are very informal and you don’t have to read if you don’t want to. It’s a great initial introduction to Hook Players and is a good opportunity to meet the group.
