Formed back in 1964, the Deben Players are an award-winning amateur theatre group based in Woodbridge, Suffolk.

We generally stage three main productions a year, one in the spring, one in the autumn and also a Christmas pantomime, all at the Seckford Theatre in Woodbridge. We also have an active junior section that usually stages a production in the summer.

Deben Players presents their 2019 pantomime, RED RIDING HOOD!

Come and meet Red Riding Hood and all her friends in Storyville, where village life is turned upside down as the Big Bad Wolf returns to the nearby woods. Wicked Sir Percy Wydell demands more taxes from everyone to pay for new security. Even Red's Granny has to pay up but she is too busy trying to catch the eye of the fine, handsome man who has just arrived in the village. Is he, as he appears, just a humble woodcutter?

Will Red be tempted by the charming and charismatic Big Bad Wolf? Can the woodcutter avoid Granny's advances?

Will Nibbles the Squirrel get hold of Granny's nuts?

Based, very loosely, on the traditional fairy tale, this pantomime has magic, merriment and mayhem along with great songs and dances; it's a Christmas treat for all the family!
