Welcome to the Stane Street Players website. 

Stane Street Players are the local drama group for Halstead and Earls Colne. We celebrated 40 years of non-professional drama in 2015 and are proud to have put on  around 120 productions in the local area.

We produce around 3 shows a year including our hugely popular pantomimes and are lucky enough to be the resident drama group at the lovely Empire Theatre in Halstead. We also perform at Earls Colne Village Hall.

Find information about our past productions, view and download images from our galleries, meet the cast , contact us about becoming a member or just get in touch.
