New Players is a friendly, innovative theatre company that has been active in Wellington’s northern suburbs for almost 40 years. We produce a range of plays including comedies, farces, murder mysteries, short plays, and pantomimes. New Players members range from highly experienced amateur dramatists to those who are just starting out.
Our dear friend and club stalwart, Marie Thomson passed away suddenly on 04 December. Marie was known throughout the Wellington theatre community and will be missed by us all in so many ways. Exuberant and always known for being able to dig other actors out of tight spots, Marie had a great sense of commitment to everything she undertook.
New Players’ next production in July is: The Supermarket Sisterhood written by Devon Williamson & directed by Ross Jordan.
Auditions will be in March.
