The Spread Eagle Players is a London-based amateur dramatics group which rehearses in Canary Wharf and performs at the Bridewell Theatre in Blackfriars.
We do all that we can to maintain an ethos of high quality productions whilst making them accessible to all.
The group was started in 1889 as The Barclays Dramatic Society for members of Barclays Bank; the 'Spread Eagle' is in fact a reference to the spread eagle
in Barclays Bank's old logo. These days, membership to the Spread Eagle Players is open to everyone over the age of 18, but the group still enjoys the support
of the bank.
You can find out more about how we work and sign up to our mailing list by clicking here.
The Spread Eagle Players needs you! We are always looking for brand new members to help us out on the stage and off it.
Whether you've never set foot on the stage before, only dabbled in high school or are a professional, you are welcome in our group. We specialise in producing professional-looking shows whilst keeping everything relaxed and friendly.
If you'd rather help out backstage, then there is a place for you in the Spreadies! If you love lighting, are sated by stage managing, delighted by directing or would perhaps be pleased with prompting, we have something for you.
Why not join us too if you want to usher for us or be a member of our audience - we will keep you up to date with all our latest news and shows.
