Sodbury Players was founded in 1946 in Chipping Sodbury, Gloucestershire. In 2006 we celebrated our 60th anniversary. We are affiliated to the National Operatic and Dramatic Association (NODA) and are members of Avon Association of Drama (AAD).
We currently perform 3 main productions each year being a pantomime in January, a spring production in May and an autumn production in September. In addition to this we enter several one act plays (adult & youth) into the All England One Act Play Festival each year which starts in February. We have a thriving youth group (SPYS).
Pauline Pincott : 1924 - 2015
Very sadly we have to let you know that our President, Pauline Pincott, passed away earlier this week. Pauline had a very long association with Sodbury Players and even in her later years still offered great support to the Group. Such a lovely lady - she will be sadly missed by us all.
