Interested in amateur theatre?

Grenoside & Birley Carr Players (GBCP) perform plays
 and Gilbert & Sullivan operettas at the Community Centre, Grenoside, Sheffield, S35 8PR, 

 GBCP was recently formed by the merger of two existing groups, both of whom had been in existence for around 60 years.  Grenoside Players have performed two plays each year at the Community Centre whilst Birley Carr Methodist Musical & Dramatic Society presented a play & a Gilbert & Sullivan operetta in Birley Carr Church hall.  Due to the closure of the church, a merger of the two societies was seen to be beneficial to both groups in that it secured a home in the Community Centre for productions and it increased acting resources to allow a larger range of plays to be presented.


An enthusiastic group of theatre lovers, with a wide range of acting and singing abilities, meet for the express purpose of maintaining the presence of amateur theatre for the enjoyment of our community.

We also welcome theatre lovers to take part in our productions.  However, those who have no wish to appear on stage would also be welcome to assist front-stage and behind the scenes in set building & props.  You never know, a wish to appear on stage may develop when you realise that your hidden talent can shine from within a large chorus.

Please get in touch through the contact page if you are interested in joining G&BCP. Unlike many societies we do not require you audition in order to join. We also have very low subscription fees, at just £2.00 per year.

Rehearsals for Gilbert &  Sullivan operettas are held at 7-45 on Wednesday evenings in St.Marks Church Hall Grenoside. After  the Panto, we move to Grenoside Community Centre. Additional rehearsals  are held on Monday evenings for principals .  

We urgently need singers for the next opera.

Why not come along and participate in our productions. Contact us for details of rehearsals.
