In the late nineties two amateur dramatics groups decided to combine youth and experience to create The St Albans Charity Players of Northampton. The St Albans Players, who have graced the stage of the St Albans Church Hall for 80 years, joined forces with the then youthful ten year old Charity Players. The mission: to have fun, and to raise funds for local charities by putting on three productions a year - a comedy, a thriller and a pantomime.

Through the years the group has performed well-known plays such as Billy Liar, The Winslow Boy and Continental Quilt, as well as a number of original pieces penned by our own scriptwriting talent.

We have a production team second to none whose dedication and improvisation regularly transform the Church Hall into a set worthy of the West End.

Each year we select a charity to benefit from the ticket sales and to date we have raised almost £20000. Our chosen charities have included The Cynthia Spencer Cancer Hospice, Northampton Carers and The Meningitis Trust.

The hours of practice and hard work are outweighed by the enjoyment of everyone involved, and the pleasure of raising money for such worthy causes. So come on and "Give applause for a Very Good Cause".
