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 produce Musical Theatre for local audiences. 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 Calendar Girls – The Musical, Our House, SPAMALOT, Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, Legally Blonde, EVITA and many more.
