At the Noda South West Awards, held in Plymouth on March 16th, APS were awarded the Councillor's Cup for
A Midsummer Night's Dream. This cup is awarded to the production that, in the Councillor's opinion,
was the most outstanding South West production
of 2018, taking into account the acting, set, costumes, music, lighting, props, mood, tone, and interpretation,
irrespective of size, budget, category or location.
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 March 2019 at the Sherborne Studio Theatre we presented Harold Pinter's The Birthday Party over six nights. This powerfully intense, thought-provoking play proved to be extremely popular and the last four nights were sold out.
