Who Are The St Jude's Players?

St Jude's Players Inc is a community theatre group consisting of volunteers operating out of a church hall in Brighton, a suburb of Adelaide, South Australia. Although the Players are loosely affiliated with, and the group was formed by, members of St Jude's Church, today membership is open to everyone who has an interest in quality community theatre.

The Players usually put on three full-length productions a year, and they can include comedies, dramas and musicals. Although the hall is not large (it seats about 180 people), on occasions we can raise the roof! Naturally, occasions for eating and drinking figure prominently throughout the year.

Committee Members

The Committee of Management, in accordance with the Players' Constitution, is elected by the membership. Each Committee member serves a 2-year term, following which he/she is eligible for re-election at the AGM. Only half the Committee has to retire each year.
