Welcome to the Wayland Players website. 

We hope you find all the information you need to join the group, come and see us perform or simply learn more about the Wayland Players.

The Wayland Players, Watton, Norfolk are an amateur dramatics group who have been successfully entertaining audiences at the Queens Hall, Watton since 1949.  It’s not all about  productions, the Players enjoy a range of social events including trips to the theatre, meals in local restaurants, summer BBQ’s or just getting together for a drink & a chat.


‘The Game’s Afoot’ - Autumn Production 2015

Not the Olympics or the Rugby World Cup but the next Wayland Players production to be kicked off in the Queens Hall in late November and for which they are now busily rehearsing.

Those of you who remember ‘Lend Me a Tenor’, ‘Moon Over Buffalo’ and, more recently, ‘Fox on the Fairway’ will have an idea that the playwright Ken Ludwig really knows his stuff when it comes to farce. 

‘The Game’s Afoot’, subtitled ‘Holmes for the Holidays’ (there’s a clue) has all the farcical elements  you would expect but with the added ingredients of murder and mystery.  Puzzled?  Or is it ‘Elementary’…….?

‘The Game’s Afoot’ will introduce a brand new member of the society to the stage, as happened in May in ‘Blithe Spirit’. If you have an overpowering urge to strut the stage, or to take one of the essential roles back stage or front of house, now is the time to do something about it. Contact us through our website www.waylandplayers.org.uk or call 01953 881054 and join in the fun.

Watch out for more clues about the play in the November edition of The Wayland News but for now keep 26th to 28th November circled in your diary!
