Welcome To The Players Theatre

Port Macquarie and The Hastings' Community Theatre for over 50 years


The Players Theatre Inc. owns and operates the Players Theatre. This superb, 230 seat venue not only provides first class entertainment for residents of the Port Macquarie and Hastings region, but enables the community to be involved and experience all facets of theatre- including acting, directing, set design, stage construction, make-up and costuming.

The ‘Players ‘ have been active for over 50 years, consistently staging 5-6 productions annually- ranging from drama, comedy, musical and pantomime.

The theatre is also available for hire to outside organisations and operates a Costume Hire Dept. boasting an extensive range of theatrical and party costumes for hire.

The operation of the Players Theatre relies on ticket sales, although, more recently, a substantial Government Grant allowed for a sprinkler system to be installed and smaller grants have provided funds for on-going structural improvements.

The Vicar of Dibley II

28th July to 12th August



The Vicar of Dibley II
Direction by Simone Sherrin
Assistant Direction by Amanda Gordon
Stage Management by Dianne Lesley

Hugo and Alice are finally married with two bridesmaids dressed up as Teletubbies. There is a nasty moment when a woman bursts in and accuses the groom of being already married. For Geraldine there is possible romance in the air as she meets, David Horton's charming younger brother Simon. Alice and Hugo return from honeymoon having been imprisoned for accidentally helping a drug smuggler. The Vicar is convinced that Alice is pregnant. Simon Horton is back in the village, and the Vicar's particularly looking forward to give him a warm welcome. Her parishioners, however, are somewhat slow on the uptake. When things go awry for the couple, Dibley is plunged into disarray. Spring is on the way, and the Vicar has just about managed to get Alice and Hugo to agree to a reasonably sensible name for their baby. That means that the Christening can finally take place - but first, David has romance, and Geraldine, squarely on his mind. It's been 10 years since Geraldine arrived in Dibley, and the villagers set out to celebrate in ways that only they could dream of. A lingerie model, chocolate fountain, copious amounts of wine and the Archbishop of Canterbury make this a Christmas to remember!

Our Next Production - Spamalot

29th September - 15 October


Direction by Sam Wylie
Assistant Direction by Simone Sherrin
Stage Management by Maz Phillips

Lovingly ripped off from the classic film comedy MONTY PYTHON AND THE HOLY GRAIL, Spamalot retells the legend of King Arthur and his Knights of the Round Table, and features a bevy of beautiful show girls, not to mention cows, killer rabbits, and French people.

Did we mention the bevy of beautiful show girls? The 2005 Broadway production won three Tony Awards, including “Best Musical,” and received 14 Tony Award nominations. Spamalot will be Sam Wylie's directorial debut for Players Theatre and we know you enjoy his vision of this exciting and comical musical.
