Rainbow Players

The Rainbow Players have been entertaining Rainbow and district for 30 years, since its inception in 1982. The first production was Agatha Christie’s “The Hollow” and the group have performed over 30 plays since. The Players aim to produce one play each year, from murder/mysteries and comedies to the much loved melodramas. Anyone is welcome to join the group, even if being on stage is not your thing. There are off stage roles such as backstage, production, lighting and sound, front of house, make-up and costuming.
