Those Player’s Parties… better than scaling Everest!
2021 Marks The 40th Anniversary Of The Bonn Players
(originally The British Embassy Players) and we plan to make it an action-packed and exciting one. Covid-19 regulations permitting, we hope to offer a year of fun, participation and creativity with two “blockbuster” productions in the summer and late autumn, as well as an event each month.
Our participation in FEATS in The Hague in 2020 and also in Brussels in 2021 was scuppered when the festivals had to be cancelled due to Covid-19, but we are hoping to perform both our entries (and more) later in the year at venues across Bonn.
In addition to performances we will be holding feasibility readings – hopefully together again and with our renowned delicious buffets. However, if that is still not possible, these can be held very successfully online, as can our monthly play-reading sessions.
The quiz evenings will be continuing in 2021, as will our workshops, either live or online.
In 2021 we are also focusing on looking ahead and ensuring that The Players stay vibrant and relevant, through new activities such as The Youth Theatre Group and poetry/prose sessions.
We are preparing a colourful book to commemorate the 93 performances that The Players have put on since 1981. This will include a history of the group, anecdotes and testimonials on the creation and performing of each production. The book will be ready towards the middle of 2022 and will be made available for purchase.
Gala Anniversary Dinner
Saturday 27th August 2022
Originally we were going to celebrate our 40th anniversary on August 28, 2021,
with a gala dinner on the banks of the Rhine. With an abundance of caution,
the committee decided to postpone to 2022.
The new date is now August 27th, 2022, just 364 days after the original date.
Please note this date in your calendars so that we can mark this jubilee.

Take a room, believe me you won’t make it home – they party too hard!
I got on stage with them, sang so loud & they didn’t chase me off!
