Get involved

Have you ever fancied having a go at …


Whether you have plenty of experience of none at all, you’re welcome to join us!


We love to perform original plays as well as established ones – talk to us about writing a play for Otley Players!


Putting on a play takes a team of people with organising and people skills, and a director with vision and ideas. Would you like to help bring the words alive?


Set building, props, costumes, lights, sound – would you like to help create the magic of theatre?

A welcoming group

We try to make our group to be informal and friendly. We decide together as a group what plays we want to put on and where, and – apart from the director being in control of a play – we try to make our decisions collectively. Everyone can get involved in acting, play writing, set building, costume, producing and directing if you want to try.

  • No auditions (usually)
  • Everyone can get involved in some way
  • Social and fun
