Ayckbourn Extravaganza!

The Marlborough Players are holding open auditions on 8th, 11th and 13th January for the performance of one of Alan Ayckbourn’s classic productions to be held at Marlborough Town Hall the week of 23rd March 2015. Once again renowned director Sue Baxter, who has directed three previous productions for The Marlborough Players, will be at the helm.

The play will be one written by Alan Ayckbourn and, while the director has several possibilities in mind, the final choice will be dependent on casting considerations. Come along to the audition and YOU can help decide the play to be chosen! Everyone, whether you are an old hand or a first timer, is very welcome.


Thursday 8th January: 7:30pm

Sunday 11th January: 3:30pm

Tuesday 13th January 7:30pm

All at The Bear Hotel, Marlborough High Street.

If you are interested but unable to attend the auditions on the given dates, or would like additional information, please contact Sue Baxter on 07769 977779 or email

Please take part in our survey

The Marlborough Players has been in existence for nearly ten years and during that time our list of members and ‘friends’ has grown to nearly 200. We feel it is time to update the list so that it more accurately reflects our membership and the extent to which everyone wishes to be be involved with productions.

With that in mind we have devised a short survey, consisting of only five  questions, which we hope you will be able to complete.

Thank you in advance for your help. COMPLETE THE SURVEY
