Who’s Who

Ad Hoc Players currently has around 15 regular members, though other people drop in and join us for productions from time to time.

Most of our members are amateurs, but some of the group have previous professional experience, either on stage or behind the scenes and a few of our members are looking to develop their skills whilst attempting to make it in the professional theatre environment.



Whatever the skill level, all are welcome, none are forgotten and the door is always open to members old and new.

In Memoriam



Along with her father, John, Lisa was a founder member of Ad Hoc Players and the group were deeply saddened by her passing in September 2013 following a two-year battle with cancer. Lisa was a remarkable woman who was not only a great talent, but also a great friend to many. She will be missed.
