St John’s Players was founded in 1966 when the new Vicar, the Reverend Alec Smith, arrived from the Forest of Dean announcing that the Church of St John the Evangelist was to start a new Drama Group after a short course of instruction. A few Church members including Dorothea Jones and her son Martin decided to give it a go and the first production took place at the Harvest Supper in 1966, it was a one act play called The Diamond Tooth. The group continued with several more one act plays followed by the first full length play A Lady Mislaid directed by Pam Stock in 1968 which ran for 2 nights.
The Players continued throughout the seventies with 2 full length productions a year and increased the performances to 3 nights. Our first drama award was in 1973 winning the Best Actor award for Not Now Darling in the County Council Full Length Play Festival.
By the 1980’s performances had increased to 4 nights, and October 1983 saw the last production at the old church hall in Parton Road of Charley’s Aunt. Then in February 1984 the group moved into a newly built hall adjacent to the church with an aptly named play called Moving.
