The Ragroof Players create theatre shows, performance projects and bespoke events in many forms and genres, including street arts, site-specific performance, vaudeville, and popular theatre and dance.
Formed in 2013 after the dissolution of Ragroof Theatre company, The Ragroof Players has at its heart four co-directors/performers who have worked together for ten years on the creation of site-responsive theatre and performance projects – shows which often have a starting point within specific communities, with the telling of true-life stories at the core of the work. The company collaborate with a number of different associate artists, from the UK and from further afield, on the creation of their shows and projects.
The company’s current repertoire includes:
A hundred years of dance crazes in a hundred minutes! The Ragroof Players present their latest participatory show, Happy Feet, in which a team of fabulous DJs and dancers take you on a non-stop dance-a-thon through the decades.
