The Ice Factory and the Teignmouth Players
The ICE FACTORY THEATRE is situated in an old Ice Factory where, many years ago, ice was made and stored for use by local fishermen. It is at the rear of 10 Somerset Place, Teignmouth (between Majestic Travel and the Methodist Church).
It is the home of the Teignmouth Players an active Amateur Dramatic Society and houses a great air-conditioned 50 seat Studio Theatre designed to give the best intimate style theatre and comfort .
THE TEIGNMOUTH PLAYERS
The day to day management and running of the Ice Factory is undertaken by the Teignmouth Players, a group of enthusiastic Amateurs with a common love of the theatre. They are committed to bringing the best possible entertainment and will be using the Ice Factory, Pavilions Teignmouth and other suitable venues in what they believe will be an exciting and challenging future full of new ideas.
Like all old buildings the Ice Factory presents challenges and currently there is no access to the performance area for physically disabled people. The Players are working to provide the best possible solution for many disabilities and have already started work on the solutions.
Running a building like the Ice Factory and producing the ambitious programme the Players present each year takes time and funds and we are grateful for all the support and help we get.
The main aim of the Society when it was formed over 50 years ago was to promote live theatre for the enjoyment and benefit of all. This is still the aim with the emphasis on enjoyment.

Part of the Players philosophy can be seen in the very active youth section, The T.Y.K.E.S who meet weekly and present major productions each year.

The Teignmouth Players is a charitable incorporated organisation (CIO), a new form of legal entity designed for non-profit organisations in the United Kingdom and they endeavour to keep live theatre thriving in the Teignmouth area.
They aim to stage several full productions each year and also maintain a social involvement and support the youth section, the T.Y.K.E.S.
The theatre is the subject of a long lease from the local council and the Players have to pay for all local services and internal maintenance items which costs a considerable amount which gets harder to find.

Any donations should be addressed to:

Some other ways to help that you may like to consider
Members who pay standard rate Tax are invited to Gift Aid their annual subscriptions – this costs them nothing but gets thePlayers an extra sum (Currently about 22%)
Various ways (such as programme advertising and sponsorship of productions) to help the theatre are currently available – please email us at email@example.com
Not the nicest of subject to discuss but it is possible to leave a bequest to the Players in your will - please email us for details.
DEED OF COVENANT
Some people ask if members can pay by Deed of Covenant but regret that this would not be economic as the small amounts involved would not be cost effective. Sorry.
Best of all why not encourage anyone you know to come and see the high standard productions the Players produce – this is the real way to help – not only now but for the future as well.
