Welcome!

The Village Players is an English language theatre group based in Lausanne, Switzerland. We put on two theatrical productions a year for the public in venues in the Lausanne area. We also have a wide variety of monthly events for members at our clubhouse at the Centre Pluriculturel d’Ouchy in the heart of Lausanne. For a brief history of The Village Players, click here.

If you would like to join the Village Players, your best option is to come to one of our events or productions and ask to speak to one of the committee members. You can see a list of all scheduled events on the right. Alternatively, feel free to contact us.

Our most recent Clubnight on November 13h was a double-bill playreading with a one act play written by a member Christa Baan, entitled Trieste, 28th June 1914, about the relationship between Franz Ferdinand, his good friend Anna,Arthur Schnitzler, James Joyce. This was followed by an extremely amusing monologue created and performed by Trevor Johnson about the delights of reincarnation!
