The Fellowship Players – A Brief History

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

From November 1965 we moved to The Grange Playhouse , putting on two plays per year, and this theatre has been at the heart of the company’s activities ever since. We added a third production to our regular season at the Playhouse in 1984 and a fourth in 2003.

In 2005 and 2006 we put on two Shakespeare productions at St. Francis of Assisi Technical College in Aldridge. In 2018, when The Grange was closed for fire safety upgrades, we went back to our roots and presented “The Ghost Train” and “Make It Murder” at Blue Coat School.
