We are proud to support a local group who provide much needed support for young disabled people in the Derby area. They rely on funding from organisations such as the National Lottery and Children in Need.
They like to take the children out to experience live theatre, which can be a challenge when coping with children with many and complex disabilities. We are delighted to welcome them to our annual pantomimes, the children enjoy the experience very much indeed!
As visits to the theatre are not cheap, and Chellaston Players are not in a position to offer complimentary tickets, we will offer our customers the opportunity to make a small donation at the end of all our performances. All the money collected will go towards funding a trip to the pantomime for the children and their carers. Any excess will be donated to Fun-abil8y to help them with their work.
If you would like to find out more about Fun-abil8y here is a link to a web page which will tell you more: http://www.stjamescentrederby.co.uk/fun-abil8y

We do hope you will feel able to make a small donation when you come to see our shows.
Due to the number of younger members involved in the pantomimes Chellaston Youth Players were formed in 2000. These talented young members performed full length musicals at the Guildhall and in Chellaston.
Since our humble beginnings, Chellaston Players have grown from strength to strength. A number of our members have received accolades and awards from the Derby Amateur Theatre Association and some have gone on to professional jobs, including one BAFTA winner in 2011!. We are always grounded and perform a number of shows each year primarily at our home in Chellaston.
