Royalty comes to the Charlton stage

The Alexandra Players, Charlton’s amateur theatre group and “the borough’s best-kept secret” are presenting their summer production on 7, 8 and 9 June. In this Jubilee year, and in recognition of the Greenwich’s newly acquired royal status, the play is Crown Matrimonial by Royce Ryton. This play, first performed in 1972 takes a look at the 1936 abdication crisis, with the King’s (or should that be Kings’) mother Queen Mary firmly at the centre of the action.

Recent years have seen an influx of new talent to the Alexandra Players which will be on display in this production, as well as some of the familiar faces of the group.

Performances are 7, 8 and 9 June at 8pm and tickets are £8 (£7 for concessions). You can book at, or leave a message with you name, contact and how many tickets for which night on 07867 627 987.

We’re always looking for new members, either onstage or backstage, with or without experience, so if this sounds like something for you, send us an email.
