About Us


The Fellowship Players have existed in their present form since 1947, following the merger of the St. Matthew’s Players and the St. Luke’s Players, two independent theatre groups operating in the centre of Walsall.

The Fellowship first appeared at the Grange Playhouse in November 1965, putting on two plays per year, and the theatre has been at the heart of the company’s activities ever since. We added a third date to our schedule at the Playhouse from the 1984/1985 season onwards and a fourth from the 2002/2003 season. In summer 2005 and 2006 a fifth date was temporarily added to the Fellowship’s calendar as we performed two Shakespeare productions at St. Francis of Assisi Technical College in Aldridge.

The Fellowship Players are an amateur dramatics group and are a not for profit organisation run by committee, making regular donations to local charities.
