As you will appreciate, due to the continued restrictions caused by COVID-19, the future is uncertain at present, and we have no idea of when we will be able to present another production in the Sherborne Studio Theatre.

When we are able to use our theatre again without having to socially distance members of the audience (which would only allow us a max audience of 8 for any one performance), we are considering starting off with a small cast play -- perhaps Same Time Next Year, or even Educating Rita, if that's available for amateur performances at the time. In the longer term, Billy Liar and Gaslight are still high on our list of possibilities.

If restrictions continue well into 2021, as seems entirely possible now, following the highly acclaimed success of Waiting for Godot in September 2020, we will look at the possibility of presenting one or more outdoor productions in the summer, perhaps in Paddock Garden again.

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.
