About Us

2009 marked the 60th anniversary of the formation of the Wesley Players. Over the last 60 years we have put on around 170 productions, normally consisting of our extremely popular pantomime at the end of January, with 2 other offerings in May and September. Whilst we don’t have any of the original cast members still performing with us, we hope that they would approve of our current stewardship and our devoted efforts to keep the Wesley Players going from strength to strength.
More recently we have been “touring” with our Murder Mystery evenings which have proved to be a great success.

This website, we hope, should provide you with all the information about the Group. It contains information about our present and past productions, auditions, Murder Mystery services but also includes a fabulous photo album and, eventually, a Forum where you will be able to leave your comments. You will be able to contact us directly to ask about the group and what we do as well as enquiring about all aspects of theatre, see Contact Us above. In the future you will be able to reserve tickets for shows directly through this site and if you belong to another Drama Group, be able to view and buy from our extensive collection of Pantomime scripts.

One of our long standing members is active within the professional theatre, Terry Mustoo. He has appeared in many films and television programmes, and has still found time to appear with us. A link to his website can be found on our 'Links' page.

The group has a wide cross section of members both on the acting and technical side. We offer 3 public productions a year consisting of 2 plays and a pantomime. This is in addition to 2 or 3 Murder Mystery evenings. We usually produce at least one offering a year for the Methodist Church and occasionally put on our productions in other locations for charitable purposes. Membership of the church is not a requirement.

We are members of the Havering Arts Council (HAC), see our 'Links' page.

We, also, enter one of our shorter plays into the Annual Drama Festivals held at the Grays Thameside and Brentwood Theatres.

We are looking for you.

We are always interested in new members for both the acting and technical sides. You may be a complete novice or have experience with other Drama Groups but why not give us a try? Full membership begins at 18yrs and we only charge a nominal sum!! We meet every Monday at 8pm at the Wesley Church Hall in Hall Lane, Upminster, Essex. RM14 1AE.
