About The Players

The Loddon Players, formed originally in 1975 as Loddon Pantomime Players, is a NODA award winning community amateur dramatics group, based in Loddon in South Norfolk.

Our productions are performed in the Lecture Hall Adjacent to St Johns Chapel, George Lane, Loddon although on occasion we have performed at both Langley School and in earlier years at Hobart High School.

Prior to the onset of COVID lockdowns, we aimed to perform at least one production a year – in most years that was a pantomime. We have also performed summer plays and variety shows, raising over £77,000 for charities and local good causes.

Latest donations 2024:

Chet Valley Community Larder – £500
Loddon Community Gym – £500
The Church’s 0f Loddon and Chedgrave for window repairs £500

In 2019 in conjunction with Funky Feet School of Dance & Performing Arts, we staged the highly acclaimed musical Annie at Langley School Theatre.

plays performed in the past include “Bonaventure”, “Clerical Errors”, “See How They Run”, “Pools Paradise”, “Fingers”, “Wild Goose Chase”, “Scarlet Ribbons” and “Murdered to Death”. The final production in 2018 was “Death by Fatal Murder”.

Our Variety Concerts include “The Big C 30th Birthday Bash” in 2010, which raised over £,2,000. Our last four productions were Snow White in January 2020, Mother Goose in March 2023, Variety Show in June 2023 and Treasure Island in Jan 2024

We have a very close artistic relationship here in Loddon with Funky Feet School of Dance and Performing Arts who provide us with choreography and dancers for our productions. Many of their young members go on to take leading roles in our productions.
