Welcome to Hook Players

Murder with Ghosts

Following our enforced break from the stage, we are very excited to announce our plans to stage Murder with Ghosts, by the acclaimed author Simon Brett, as our Autumn production.

Lady Constance Cholmondley, of Quittendon Manor, suspects she will be murdered during the weekend house party, she is about to host.  She calls upon the services of amateur sleuth Peregrine Villiers, to prevent her anticipated demise. It’s a farcical whodunnit with lots of surprises. 

If you would like to get involved, auditions will be taking place at the Elizabeth Hall on Tuesday 7th and Thursday 9th September – more details from

There are lots of ways to get involved without going on the stage, too. Anything from building scenery  to manning the bar (one of the most important jobs in the show!) 

More details will be available here later on, but we can already announce that performances will be on  25th & 26th November and 2nd & 3rd December – we look for ward to seeing you there. 

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.
