The objectives of the Society are to provide educational instruction and entertainment for Rustington and the local communities and to encourage participation in the dramatic arts.
Rustington Players started way back in 1921 and has provided entertainment for over 100 years!
We stage three major productions at the Woodlands Centre in March, June and November each year. We aim to provide a varied programme of entertainment, from comedies to tragedies, from mysteries to melodramas.
Also extremely popular are our Studio Productions and Murder Mystery evenings. Other social events include a summer BBQ, quiz nights and a Christmas party.
As a very inclusive society, we welcome new members whether you want to act, work behind the scenes or enjoy our social calendar! If you want to become a member, click here and we look forward to welcoming you soon.

Our next production so keep your diaries free for 13 - 16 March 2024
Step forward John Brown, future leader of the Green Party. A man with vision. A man with charisma. But a man with a problem.
Forced by a mystery illness to quit his beloved politics, John decides to give one, last blistering farewell speech at the annual conference. The party faithful rise as one to greet their hero. The press cameras crackle and flash. And John stands to deliver his final, stark message to the waiting world. "Go green...or die."
Little could he know just how profound those words would be.
David Tristram the playwright describes it as “a tragi-comedy with an extraordinary and surreal twist, which gives a whole new meaning to the concept of colour prejudice”.
This amateur production of ‘Going Green’ is presented by arrangement with Concord Theatricals Ltd. on behalf of Samuel French Ltd. www.concordtheatricals.co.uk
