The Hayes Players was established in 1933 by
Josiah Merrill, and has regularly been presenting plays in the
Hayes Village Hall (see
map) since the first performance in March 1934.
Our productions, four or five a year, range between comedies,
farces, serious plays and melodrama, interposed with an occasional
musical play, revue or pantomime. Over the last four seasons,
the audience over the three nights of each production averaged
500. Due to increased demand we are now running productions over four nights.
We are proud of the quality of all aspects of our productions
such as acting, direction, presentation and great team work.
We have a long history of success in local drama competitions,
including awards in both the Kent and Bromley Drama Festivals.
We support local community activities in partnership with other
local societies, and have provided equipment and facilities for
the Hayes Village Hall.
We have our own busy social calendar, and regular newsletters
keep members informed of what is going on.
We rehearse and construct scenery in the Merrill Studio, off George
Lane (see map),
in which we also store our scenery, furniture, properties and
