The Hoghton Players is an amateur dramatics group from the village of Hoghton, near Preston, in Lancashire. We look to perform at least 2 plays per year to suit all tastes.
Whether you are due to watch one of our performances for the first time or, like many, you are returning to watch us again, you are very welcome and we would like to thank everyone who has been involved over the years and to all of our supporters across the country.
WE ARE PLEASED TO ANNOUNCE THAT THE HOGHTON PLAYERS APRIL 2024 PLAY WILL BE:
by TERENCE RATTIGAN
April 25th - 28th 2024
Cast of 8 ladies & 4 men (various ages)
Two one acts, presented together, depicting the hijinks and heartbreak following the residents of a shabby genteel hotel on England's coast. This is 1950s theatre at its finest: chatty, formal and with deliciously oblique subtext.
Readings/Auditions at Hoghton Village Hall
Thursday 1st February & Monday 5th February at 7.45pm.
You don't need to attend both sessions, but can do if you wish to do so.
Production & technical team and backstage help needed too.
If you wish to be involved in any capacity but can't attend either date, or for any enquiries please contact the following
Jackie: 07766 641404
Looking forward to seeing you there!
We were delighted to WIN the NODA North West - District 3 Victor Booth Award for Ongoing Commitment to Innovative Staging.

Our dear friend Brian Hoyle passed away on Thursday 16th November 2023.
He was a long-standing dedicated member of The Hoghton Players
& served on the committee for many years.
Brian often performed on stage and also successfully directed many of our productions & along with his wife Joyce, were our efficient bartenders.
He will be sadly missed and remembered with great affection.
Thank you Brian for so many wonderful memories ❤️
