Take Part

Thank you for showing an interest in the Guild of Players. The Guild of Players is an amateur dramatic company that has owned the Theatre Royal Dumfries since 1959.

We produce a season of four plays and a pantomime alongside hosting a varied programme of touring professional shows.

If you prefer your theatre less hands-on, support us by becoming an audience member or sponsor, and help us spread the word about activities here at the Theatre Royal. 

Joining the Guild of Players is a great way to meet new people, make new friends and learn new skills. Tuesdays have become a regular volunteer day (with an excellent lunch for a nominal sum) alongside work nights and rehearsals. Social nights are organised throughout the year ranging from treasure hunts to karaoke in the bar.

We are always looking for new members and would love you to come and be part of our team. No experience is necessary as we will be more than happy to show you how everything is done.  We are always looking for new ideas or suggestions as how to improve our organisation so please come and be part of Scotland’s oldest theatre.
