Metropolitan Players Inc is a non-professional theatre company that has been operating in Newcastle for 40 years. The Company was first formed in 1977 and has been producing quality musicals ever since.

We produce one major musical each year, although in the past there were sometimes 2 each year.  You can go to our Past Productions page to get a full list of productions and details about them.

For many years we have used the 924-seat Griffith Duncan Theatre at Newcastle University.  Our most recent productions have been at Newcastle’s premier theatre, the 1400-seat Civic Theatre.

Over the years our productions have received many City of Newcastle Drama Awards (the CONDAs).  The most successful was “The Producers” in 2008 which won 6 Awards.  However, this has now been beaten by our 2014 production of “The Phantom of the Opera” which won 7 Awards. After “Wicked” in 2016 the Company has now won the CONDA best musical production 5 years in a row.

We make all our own costumes for each show and many of these are for hire.  Go to our Hire page for details.
