Show Proposals and My Fair Lady Update


My Fair Lady

By George he did it! He did as well!

Unfortunately due to a very prominent producer procuring the rights to develop a new production of My Fair Lady in the west end, the rights the show have been revoked.  The rights issuer and Dale worked very hard to compromise but unfortunately there wasn’t an option with which would work for us to put on My Fair Lady as an outdoor show in 2018. It is a great shame that we are having to pull this from the outdoor slot and we are sad that we couldn’t make it happen. We will definitely be looking at whether we can do this in a few years time.

Show Proposals

We need YOU! If you have an idea for a production you would like to put on, let us know!  We are looking for proposals for slots in 2017/18 and 19.

There is a now a deadline for initial proposals for the 2018 Pantomime which is the end of March.

Some great websites to look for inspiration are:


To get more information on how to get a proposal together, see our proposal timeline and/or email us at committee@riversideplayers.co.uk and we can walk you through the process.

Updates from Committee Meeting Sept and Oct 2015


Spring Slot

Next year’s spring slot will be Rope directed by Matthew Friett. More details to come soon!

House of Dracula

The youth group are working really hard on their next show, House of Dracula. It will be for one night only on the 14th of November so get your tickets from Naomi now! It is the most ambitious show the kids have done for a long time and well worth your support.

Stars in their Eyes

We are still looking for a couple of acts for Stars. It will be on the 5th of December and promises to be a fabulous evening. We need you to come be your idols! Don’t worry if you don’t look exactly like that person or sound exactly like them, it’s the performance that counts! Email jasond@riversideplayers.co.uk 

My Brilliant Divorce

We have had standing ovations, we have had multiple emails in, we have had people stopped in the street! Every single piece of feedback has been utterly astounded by this show. If you haven’t booked your tickets yet, do it now. Here are some of the pieces of feedback shared with us:

I had sat just in front of what turned out to be the actor’s daughter and I said to her that her mother was b r i I l i a n t and I/we were “gobsmacked” at the length of the script the actor had to learn with very little prompting.  Her daughter asked me to meet her mother afterwards and I was proud to shake her hands and she looked exhausted.  Positively first class

It turned out to be one of those special evenings that are truly memorable. The work that went into the production must have been enormous, and the end product brilliant.

If any member of riverside players wishes to view the minutes to the Committee Meetings, they are available upon request by emailing committee@riversideplayers.co.uk
