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.

A few words about Our Man in Havana courtesy of the Halstead Gazette


Farewell to Our Man in Havana

Well, farewell to Our Man in Havana. Hardest show I have ever done, at 3 totally different venues, more props, sound cues , lighting changes than most other productions I have ever seen. Fastest costume changes, most drinks consumed, and all done with humour and goodwill as exemplified in taking down set last night. It has also been done at a time of some personal stress and difficulty for a number of us. The final result and audience reaction seemed to be very good. This has been, however, a very personal experience. I could not have wanted more from any of you and I am a happy man. A great few months . Thanks to everyone. – John Sanders – Director DSCF1597.JPG     Coming Next – Ray Cooney’s farce – Funny Money FunnyMoneyNEWApril1.jpg FunnyMoneyNEWApril2.jpg
