Spelthorne Festival Results

Very well done to writer Graham Collier (aka Luffy McTuggle) and the whole Stay’d For team at the Spelthorne and Runnymeade Drama Festival last night.  After a very positive adjudication on the final night of the festival, up against stiff competition (6 new plays having been entered) Ottershaw Players came away with the “Best New Play” trophy.  They also received nominations for Stage Presentation and Technical Merit which was a great achievement and excellent follow up to the previous weeks’ success at Woking Drama Festival.

Congratulations also go to Graham for a fantastic acting performance for RDG (who won the festival) as he won the Best Actor Trophy.

Woking Drama Festival Results

Huge contratulations to Graham Collier and the Stay’d For team for winning two awards at the Woking Drama Festival tonight.  The “Best use of Sound” award went to Andy Lacey and Graham’s play also got the trophy for “Technical Excellence”

Christmas Production Auditions

Dear Players

Are you Free? I know I am.

As I am sure that you know by now, Ottershaw Players will be presenting: ‘Are you Being Served’ as their December production.

The play is an adaption of the well known Television comedy (in fact it is an adaption of the film of the tv program).

The play is set in the Department Store and in Spain (where there is a revolution going on). It is extremely funny and full of pun and innuendo.

AUDITIONS will take place:

This Sunday (22nd September ) at Brook Hall in Ottershaw from 7.30 pm


Tuesday (24th September) Chobham Club (Windsor Road, Chobham, GU24 8LD) from 7.30 pm.

I hope to see you there.

If you cant make it but would still like to be considered please email me ( or give me a ring

All the best


Made Glorious Summer

Made Glorious Summer, written and directed by Graham Collier, won Best New Play and the script was put forward in 2011 by the Spelthorne & Runnymede adjudicator (Mike Kaiser) for the National George Taylor Memorial Award 2011/2012.  The judging process has taken some time, but we are very pleased to announce that the script was awarded 3rd place.

There were 3 judges, here is an exerpt from some of their comments:

“It is full of vigour and presence, and the author/adaptor has chosen cleverly.  The characters are lifted off the page and become real and huge.  We are sucked into this story and hardly dare breathe as we watch the entrapment of Ethan unfold.”

Many congratulations to Graham, a great result especially for his first play!

Please come and support Graham’s second play “Stay’d For”, which is currently in rehearsals for the October Festival season.

At Woking Drama Festival, it will be performed on Friday October 11th, at 7pm and Spelthorne & Runymeade Festival will be performed on Saturday October 25th, at 7pm

NODA District Award for Excellence

We are delighted to announce that Ottershaw Players’ production of A Christmas Carol won the District Accolade of Excellence, at the National Operatic Drama Association 2013 AGM awards.

Our congratulations to director Graham Botterill, who would like to “congratulate all the members who contributed to this fine production.”
