The Award Winning
Amateur Dramatics Group
Winners of the Pantomime Alliance of Leicestershire
Blue Balloon award for best pantomime 2018 and Best Dame 2022!
Trinity Players Amateur Dramatics Group were formed at Trinity church hall, Hinckley in 1989. Our first production staged was a comedy called " Here we come gathering".
35 years on and our family friendly group has gone from strength to strength, still incorporating original members, their children and grandchildren as well as many new faces along the way.
We perform three productions a year, with our adult members staring in our April play and cast members of all ages appearing in our pantomime in December and our variety night in June, much to the joy of all involved.
Rehearsals are held on saturday afternoons and Wednesday evenings, and everyone is welcome to come along to join us.
It's a golden Treasure Island panto!
A review by Tony Parratt for the Hinckley Times.
A treasure trove of talented youngsters ensured that the latest Trinity Players pantomime was yet another rip-roaring success.
This was a truly age defying night. Where many of the leading parts were taken by performers young in years but showing a stage maturity way beyond them.
And this seemed to spur on some of the senior 'Players' to up their game too, as they performed a golden 'Treasure Island'.
Kayleigh Long as Jim Hawkins and Lucie Sharman-Wells as Jenny Trelawney were at the top of their game, as they led the hunt for the map and buried treasure located on a faraway island.
While Wayne Roberts as blowsy Mum Hawkins had the audience constantly chuckling and eating out of his hand, with sly innuendos and saucy glances.
An authoritive Squire Trelawney came to life in the form of Sally Whiston, while Linda Smith was a menacing Long John Silver and certainly earned her share of boos.
Every traditional panto must have a funny twosome and the pairing of Matthew Smith as Seadog Sam and Amy Tyrrell as Seaweed Willy was pure comedy gold.
Adding to the convincing performances were first rate sound, lighting and scenery, ensuring we were continually swept along with the action.
Many of the supporting roles were taken admirably by junior members displaying fine acting, dancing and singing skills, while old stager Peter Bradley managed a fine cameo role as Ben Gunn, ensuring he shared the stage with two of his grandchildren.
Truly a show for the family both on and off stage.
