To provide outstanding performances for the public whilst continuing to support and help our wide variety of cast and crew.
Magpie Performers is a non-profit theatre group founded in January 2017.
We work with a large range of people with different skills and abilities starting from ages 9 all the way into adulthood. Members work in a variety of theatre fields, from being on stage to working behind scene making props, set and doing tech work.
Behind the scenes, the running of Magpie Performers is all done by volunteers who give their time each and every week to ensure our all inclusive club can continue running for it's wide range of members.
Magpie Performers rehearse once a week on a tuesday evening, between 6:30pm and 9:30pm at Holy Trinity Church, Ipswich. Our Summer Show's take place in July, and our pantomime's take place in January at DanceEast.
