April 2021 updateThe future remains uncertain, but there is perhaps light at the end of the Covid19 tunnel, and with this in mind we have been making some tentative plans.
We hope to be able to present another summer production in Paddock Gardens this year, perhaps in August, and maybe even a production in the Sherborne Studio Theatre in the autumn. Naturally, these plans depend on what restrictions are still in place after June 21st, but we live in hope.

Amateur Players of Sherborne (APS) are one of the oldest groups in the area. Since the group was founded in 1934, we have presented over 160 shows and have received a number of awards. We are now based in the Sherborne Studio Theatre.
In September 2020 we presented Waiting for Godot, by Samuel Beckett, in Paddock Garden, Sherborne. It was, as far as we know, the first production in the area since lockdown in March and was well-received by an appreciative sell-out audience.
Formerly a chapel (known as 'The Tin Tabernacle'), Sherborne Studio Theatre has been converted into a cosy, intimate setting with a stage, green room and an auditorium that can accommodate an audience of around 40-50 people.
You are very welcome to become a member of APS, whether you want to act, work back stage or just enjoy our company. If you would like to get involved in staging a play or just enjoy an entertaining night out, we will be delighted to hear from you.
