Denstone Players

The Denstone Players Amateur Dramatic Society evolved from the Village Review held in support of The Denstone Sports Trust in 1987. Since then the Society has staged numerous plays and shows for the enjoyment of members and our audiences in the local community. A Young Players section was established in 2008 for children aged 8 to 16 years. However, due to a variety of reasons the Society ceased functioning but re-launched in May 2014 when a new Committee was elected.
