As so many organisations like The National Theatre and the Globe theatre are following our lead and sharing productions, we thought we’d share another! Our 2010 production of “The Importance of being Earnest” by Oscar Wilde received rave reviews, and won the local NODA (National Operatic and Dramatic Association) award for best play. It can be downloaded in MP4 format here The Importance of Being Earnest (It’s is quite sizeable at just over 3GB, but it’s worth it…honestly)…Featuring current and past members of the Players, it is still a great favourite! As we said, this is a gift from us to you, our audiences, as a thank you for your support, however, if you wish to show your appreciation, we are again asking if you might be able to donate any amount, however small, to […]

We have received our NODA review for Corpse!…. NODA review of Corpse by Barton Players on 12th July 2019 Review by Richard Fitt On a hot steamy night a full house packed into Barton-le-Clay village hall to see the latest offering by Barton Players, Corpse by Gerald Moon. I have to say I have not heard of this play before and it’s always a great treat to see something a little different and out of the ordinary.

In addition to their helpfulness the ‘team’ were easily identified in their smart society T shirts. A term that is often used instead of ‘Amateur Dramatics’ is ‘Community Theatre’ and the atmosphere and my observations in the foyer prior to the show indicated to me that the Barton Players clearly have their place in the local community very well established. The front of house team were welcoming friends rather than customers. ‘A Bunch […]
