Quay Players Made In Dagenham

From small hall to thriving theatre

How it all started

The Quay Players was established as an amateur musical theatre group in 1997. We are affiliated to the National Operatic and Dramatic Association (NODA). We rehearse at St. Anne’s church hall, Thorburn Square, London SE1 every Tuesday, 7.30pm-9.30pm, and generally perform two shows a year: a pantomime at Christmas and a musical in the summer, plus regular cabarets and open music nights.

We’re proud to be close to central London with our nearest stations to the rehearsal venue and theatre at London Bridge and Bermondsey. We welcome anyone and pride ourselves in being a community-based group.
