Sleeping Beauty

Calling all performers!
Charlton Kings Community Players are on the hunt for actors for their 2023 pantomime. There are speaking and non-speaking roles available, we are particularly on the look out for:
Princess (aged 16-25)
Prince (aged 16-25)
Panto Dame (age 25 +)

Pantomime 2nd, 3rd and 4th November 2023 (two evenings and a matinée).

There will be a taster afternoon in March when there will be a read through of scenes and review of the songs. We’ve researched two different scripts from which to make a choice. Dates of this event and auditions will be notified through the Players’ mailing list.

 Walk of Witness 2023

Charlton Kings Community Players have been taking part in the Charlton Kings Churches Together ‘Walk of Witness’ most Good Fridays since 1992. They have performed a piece of street theatre in the Church Piece Precinct, which is one of the stations of the walk. This is the offering for 2023,  a sketch called ‘Peter’s Denial’ written by Peter Grainger, and originally performed as street theatre outside the library in Charlton Kings in 1992.

CKCP Record Guide

This three-part set of the Players’ Performance Record not only provides detail of some thirty years of ‘doing’ in the community, but also scans of the programmes and a selection of photographs.




Play Readings

We’ve been enjoying regular play readings since early in 2020. They’ve given participants
opportunities to try out different character parts, and for the Players to explore new pieces
which could be performed ‘live’.

Our reading of an adaptation of Jane Austen’s ‘Pride and Prejudice’ has resulted in the issuing
of an audio production as currently advertised. A request out in the community, for

submissions from creative writers for sketches to be performed, resulted in lively and thought-
provoking results. A one act play was also submitted and it is hoped that the Players will be
able to mount a live production in 2022.
