Since 1963, The Suburban Players have presented English speaking theatre and culture to our community throughout Buenos Aires and beyond. Together with our members, supporters and wider audience, we have maintained our commitment to high quality theatre throughout good times and more difficult days.

The Suburban Players are the epitome of community theatre. As such we take our responsibilities to our greater community very seriously. The unprecedented arrival of the Coronavirus has made us all even more aware of these responsibilities.

With that in mind, and for the wellbeing of all involved, the Board of Directors of The Suburban Players has decided to suspend all of our activities with immediate effect and until such time as they can be resumed safely and responsibly.

We have a great year of theatre, musicals, play readings and social events planned. We are committed to producing them for your enjoyment as soon as circumstances allow.

The Suburban Players will keep you informed of developments. In the meantime we urge you all to stay safe and healthy, and we look forward to seeing all of you in the hopefully not too distant future.

You know you work in amateur theatre when…

…your living room sofa spends more time on stage than you do.
…you have your own secret family recipe for stage blood.
…you can find a prop in the prop room that hasn’t seen the light of day in ten years, but you don’t know where your own vacuum cleaner is.
…you start buying your work clothes at second-hand stores so you can buy costumes at the shopping mall.
…you’ve ever cleaned a tuxedo with a magic marker.
…you’ve ever appeared on stage in an outfit held together with hot glue.
…you’ve ever appeared in a show where tech week is devoted to getting the running time under four hours.
…you’ve ever appeared in a show where the cast outnumbered the audience.
…you’ve ever gotten a part because you were the only one who showed up for the audition.
…you’ve ever menaced anyone with a gun held together with duct tape.
…you’ve ever had to haul a sofa offstage between scenes wearing a dinner gown and high heels.
…you’ve ever had to haul a sofa offstage between scenes wearing a dinner gown and high heels…and you’re a guy.
…your kids know your lines better than you do.
…you’ve ever had to play a drunk scene opposite someone who was REALLY drunk.
…you’ve ever heard a director say, “try not to bump into the furniture”, and mean it.
…you’ve ever heard the head of the set construction crew say: “just paint it black – no one will ever see it”.
…the set designer has ever told you not to walk on the left half of the stage because the floor’s still wet –five minutes before curtain.
…you’ve ever said, “Don’t worry –we’ll just staple it!”.
