About Us...

Formed in 1971 as The Marrion Players of Yeovil, The Civic players have been treading the boards for almost 45 years! A full list of plays over that time can be found below. There are a fair few of them!
Known for a set list of predominantly comedy plays with the odd drama and thriller thrown in for good measure, the company have gone from strength to strength. We have a wealth of experience in both our members and in our  working practices. From young actors in their teens to the more...senior amongst us, we love what we do and aim to show that through our performances.


If you have seen and enjoyed one or many of our shows, we invite you to get involved. There are many ways in which you can do this, from a Facebook "like" you can join our mailing list or of course you can become a Patron and help us to continue to do what we love.


We look forward to hearing from you.
