*** Happy New Year ***
Fiddler On The Roof in April 2018
Rehearsals re-start at Hardwick School 7:30pm in January!

This year, our charity we are supporting is East Anglian Air Ambulance


We are delighted to announce that next year’s show will be Fiddler on the Roof  performed in the Great Barn at Manor Farm in Bourn. 
For those of you who are not familiar with the venue its an enormous Grade I listed barn right in the heart of Bourn village and Fiddler on the Roof is the perfect fit for the venue.

In addition to performing the shows in a new venue, we’re also staging the production a month later on the 25th, 26th, 27th and 28th April – yes, that’s right, one additional performance on the Wednesday.

Fyedka (16 – 25, non-singing): A Russian with a gentle heart who shares Chava’s love of reading.
Yente (45-65, Alto): The nosey matchmaker of the village. Meddling, bossy, and a whiner.

A Message from our Chairman


Bourn Players was established in 1994 and the first of our 18 shows was performed the following spring. Each year, we aim for our show to entertain but above all to be a real community event that also raises money for local charities. These shows are an opportunity for adults and child alike to tread the boards and display the tremendous talents that abound locally. We are always extremely welcoming of new members, whether you wish to display your acting, singing and dancing talents or to get involved in the large number of backstage roles that our productions require. Anyone wishing to get involved in any capacity should contact me at chairman@bournplayers.org.uk
