June 2021 update
We are pleased to anounce that we are now planning on two productions this year. The first will take place in August in Paddock Gardens, where we presented Waiting for Godot in September last year. With any luck all Covid restrictions will have been lifted by then, which will mean that we are less restricted as to the number of people in the audience.
And in December we very much hope to present Agatha Christie's Witness for the Prosecution in the Sherborne Studio Theatre.
Sherborne Studio Theatre
Mon 6th - Sat 11th December
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.
