Orpen Players

Community Theatre in West Bergholt, Colchester

What our members say

The Orps are a really friendly and welcoming group who will welcome anybody to the family
Anne Sexton
The fun thing about Orpen is that they pretty much allow you to do whatever you feel you can do. I’ve acted in plays but I’ve also operated the sound effects up in the box at the back of the Orpen Hall.

Pretty much anything he feels he can do
I love being part of the Orpen players, everyone is very friendly and welcoming both kids and adults. We are like one big happy family and I love the way we all come together especially at show time
