Who we are
The Kentish Players are one of Medway’s leading musical theatre companies. Founded in 1914, this long running theatre company produces one major production a year, playing to packed houses and rave reviews. Members include dancers, stage managers, crew members, directors, musical directors, choreographers, accountants, technicians, costume designers, production secretaries and, of course, actors.
What we do
The Kentish Players’ aim is to present professional standard shows to audiences, both local and from further afield. We often produce amateur premiers of top productions as soon as they are released from the West End or national tours. Our recent shows include EVITA, All Shook Up!, Disco Inferno, The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas, Little Shop of Horrors, The Wedding Singer and many more.
