Welcome to the Rex Players

    The Rex Players were formed in 1996, when a few adventurous Wareham people put on an evening’s entertainment at the Rex Cinema. The idea took off and the show has gone from strength to strength, in recent years playing to full houses for five nights.  Like the Wareham Carnival and the Purbeck Film Festival, the Rex Show has become part of the local calendar. Over the years the Rex Players have raised some £40,000 for local causes.  As a variety show, with a large cast and everyone doing what they’re best at, it’s a highly entertaining evening. Thanks to strong teamwork and a dedicated backstage crew, the show is fast moving as well as fun.

    We always need people with ideas for the next show, performers prepared to sing, dance, act or make fools of themselves, speciality acts, musicians, people behind the scenes, front-of-house staff, committee members etc. If you are 16 or over and would like to get involved, you’ll be warmly welcomed.
