Welcome to The Portsmouth Players

We are a critically-acclaimed musical theatre company based in Portsmouth, established in 1926 with our first production of 'The Gondoliers' being staged the following year. We have presented exeptional and engaging musical classics for many years from Gilbert and Sullivan and Rodgers & Hammerstein favourites to the more contemporary recent offerings of 'Spamalot' and 'Priscilla Queen of the Dessert,' staged at the beautiful Kings Theatre in Southsea and also from our very own studio theatre: The Barn. 

Over the years, The Portsmouth Players have established an enviable reputation for staging musical theatre productions that are not only of an expectionally high standard, dare we say professional even, but most importantly by utilising the abundant skills and talents of our members from in and around Portsmouth. 


Whilst we do not receive any form of ongoing financial support to fund the cost of staging productions or to otherwise subsidise running costs, we are fortunate to be able to rely on the generous support of our loyal patrons of Portsmouth and the surrounding areas. This alone ensures we remain financially viable and self sufficient.


Welcome to all our patrons, both new and seasoned, we hope you find our site informative and interesting.
