News from Copthorne Players


Fiddler on the Roof – the emotional story of a father’s love of his family in the village of Anatevka. Tevye the milkman’s world is changing as his beloved daughters fall in love; can he bend or will he break? This is a musical full of unforgettable numbers – Tradition, Sunrise Sunset, Matchmaker to name a few. We couldn’t be more excited to be returning to Chequer Mead with this funny, catchy, tragic and uplifting musical. Directed by Jeremy Tafler and supported by an amazing crew and talented cast who bring great enthusiasm to this memorable show.

We hope that you will come and support us at Chequer Mead in East Grinstead between 21st – 24th November – tickets are already on sale and selling fast! You can purchase them online or by phone from the box office on 01342 302000.

There are lots more shows to come over the next 12 months or so, including Nunsense, a hilarious spoof about the misadventures of five nuns trying to manage a fundraiser. Sadly, the rest of the sisterhood died from botulism after eating vichyssoise prepared by Sister Julia! So, the remaining nuns – ballet-loving Sister Leo, street-wise Sister Robert Anne, befuddled Sister Mary Amnesia, the Mother Superior Sister Regina, and mistress of the novices Sister Mary Hubert – stage a talent show in order to raise the money to bury their dearly departed. Also, not forgetting, our much loved village Panto which we hope will be returning to the Copthorne stage next year!
