Welcome to Cygnet Players

We are a fun and friendly amateur theatre society based in South West London.


Announcing the first ever Cygnet Proms!
A live orchestra, a full choir, and a chance to dress up like you’re off to the Royal Albert Hall! In this project, we’re celebrating the talented musicians of the band that are usually hidden behind scenery. This time, they will be front and centre, joined by a massed chorus of singers. Whether you want to play, sing, conduct or organise the arrangements, come and join us!

Little Women

Cygnet Players are excited to bring Little Women (The Musical) to the stage, performing from Wednesday 6th to Saturday 9th September 2023 at Putney Arts Theatre.

Based on Louisa May Alcott’s semi-autobiographical novel, it focuses on the four March sisters – traditional Meg, wild, aspiring writer Jo, timid Beth and romantic Amy – and their beloved Marmee, at home in Concord, Massachusetts, while their father is away serving during the Civil War. Jo’s melodramatic short stories, written in her attic, recreate their lives and lead us through a heart warming and tragic journey through the lives of these Little Women.


Young Frankenstein

February 2023 saw Cygnet Players as one of the first companies to bring Mel Brooks’ Young Frankenstein to the amateur stage.

Young Frankenstein is the hilarious musical farce from the twisted comic mind of Mel Brooks, based on his film of the same name. Following runs on Broadway and West End, Cygnet Players are extremely excited to be one of the first companies to bring this show to the amateur stage.
