Welcome to The Castle Players

Delighting Audiences since 1989

The Castle Players is a community drama group based in Barnard Castle, County Durham. Since establishing in the late 1980s, The Castle Players has become one of the region’s leading non-professional theatre companies.

"Is there any other group, amateur or professional, apart possibly the RSC, which could fill any venue in Teesdale for four nights with any work by the Bard?"


 Join us for our next production which takes place at The Witham on Friday 27th and Saturday 28th October 2017.

Black Comedy is a one act farce written by Peter Shaffer (Equus, Amadeus) and is a merry romp through an evening in the company of Brindsley Miller and his fianceé, Carol Melkett. 

Follow them as they, their neighbours, an electrician and a millionaire art collector fumble their way through the 'dark' - the play is held under reversed lighting - bumping into each other, the furniture and a whole of host lies!

Tickets are now available from The Witham website click below!
