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.

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.
