The Stirling Players drama group had its humble beginnings in the early part of 1972 when a mere 25 people voted for the formation of the Hills Drama Group. The increasing interest prompted a name change to the current Stirling Players. To find out more...
The Stirling Players call the historic Stirling Community Theatre their home. Located in the beautiful Adelaide Hills, in Avenue Road, Stirling, the theatre is just minutes from the city, and accessible from all parts of the Hills and beyond. For detailed directions and parking information..
We are pleased to announce that the final curtain has not fallen on The Stirling Players! A Special Meeting held on 23 April 2020 has voted overwhelmingly for The Players to continue, and a 16 strong committee has been elected, bringing a range of interests, theatrical experience and skills, which will ensure that the Players’ continue with the high standards audiences have come to expect. We thank the wider theatre community for your expressions of support over the past few months. We don't know when our beautiful will reopen, but we can now say, that when it does, we will be ready to welcome you back!

In a first for The Stirling Players, the evolution of one of our productions has been documented on film. Flinders University student, Sailesh Sharma, tracked the director, cast and crew of CELEBRATION for many months. The result is A Sterling Performance, in which our lovely theatre also has a feature role.
We congratulate Sailesh on producing such a terrific insight into community theatre and the people who help it to thrive. So sit back and relax and watch it here....

"April Stuart as Judith... soars in the second act"
"Tracey Korsten as Hester is excellent"
"Deborah Walsh as Lydia...shines when Lydia’s deeper sadness is explored"
