The Benvenuto Players is an English speaking amateur theatre group in the province of Varese. We have been active since 1987 intent on delivering the best Christmas pantomime experience in accordance with traditional British values. We have produced full Shakespeare plays, and small Shakespeare adaptations. Over the years we have done full theatre productions from famous British theatre writers such as Noël Coward, Agatha Christie, Graham Linehan, a Roahl Dahl adaptation by David Wood, and The Canterville Ghost and The dreaming Prince from famous Irish dramatist Oscar Wilde.
We regularly hold workshops in theatre acting to improve and develop our acting skills. We enjoy singing as well, and nobody better manages than us to get the audience involved in our singing contests.
Lately we have concentrated on dance number within our plays. Bringing dancing numbers with special choreography of hits from Britney Spears, Meghan Traynor, Bruno Mars and many others within our latest Christmas pantomime, Rapunzel.
Amongst our crew members we promote teamwork, integrity, discipline, loyalty and perfectionism. We take fire regulations within theatres of paramount importance. We never take shortcuts. We delivered The Sleeping Beauty pantomime in December 2021 under the most severe Covid restrictions, every member of the crew and cast vaccinated, tested free and the strictest minimum distance requirements were kept on stage and within the theatre at all times.
We have strong links with local Italian theatres having held performances all over the province of Varese. Always in accordance with Italian legislation on performing in theatres.
