 The Masque Players have been performing in one form or another for over 70 years!


Originally known as the Nacton Road Players, the group was originally developed to present Shakespeare to local schools. Over the years the group has evolved into a versatile amateur dramatics group which stage a wide range of drama.


The Masque Players are based at the Kesgrave Community Centre and with an active membership of in excess of 30 members produce two plays a year, one near Easter and the other at the end of November.


The Masque Players have built up a well deserved reputation within the Suffolk theatrical community. Little wonder when you consider our constant output of quality plays and also that we can claim early association with such theatre luminaries such as Trevor Nunn who used to join the group for play readings!


We manage to attract a regular stream of audiences to our productions and it is not unknown to get over 200 attend one of our evenings.



New members are always made welcome in whatever capacity they feel comfortable doing. With at least two productions a year there is always the opportunity to do something, whether its on, off or behind stage!

The Masque Players  aim to sponsor a different local  charity each year with fundraising at our shows.


Our chosen charity for 2017 was St. Elizabeth Hospice who cared for our dear friend and long-standing Masque Player member in the last days of her life.
