A look at the history of Nantwich town, featuring the story of the Nantwich Players  

(Produced by Laurels Films for Nantwich Players' Theatre Project)*


WITH 1.5million to find to finance a new theatre project at their Love Lane premises, the premier amateur dramatics society in the town has launched a range of fund-raising events. Not least of them, in terms of effort from the producers, is this 40-minute DVD which tells the story of the society from its formation as Nantwich Play-Reading Circle in 1927.

   Members have already signed up to provide monthly donations for seven years to finance the purchase of One Love Lane, a former funeral parlour next to their theatre premises. This is now well hand with an interest-free loan from Nantwich Town Council.

   Of course, the society is not expecting to be able to raise all the money themselves. A small group of members are putting together a package to present to principle fund providers.

   The project will provide increased seating - up to 120 comfortable seats for patrons - as well as better backstage facilities. It has a community element to it, too, in that local people will be able to hire a large open area for a range of activities.

   The DVD starts with a history of the South Cheshire market town before concentrating on the Players from the day their theatre was converted from a Friends' Meeting House.

   Jonboro Videos has not been involved in the production of this DVD, nor are we responsible for the sale of it. See below for how you can obtain a copy.


*The society is not using valuable project funds on the DVD. Laurels Films is the production name of Sue and Frank Whitham, the sister and brother-in-law of one of the Players' members and they have made the video as their contribution to the project.
