Five Decades of Entertainment

Proud to be a Community Tradition!

The 2009 season marked the 40th anniversary of the Langley Players Drama Club. Many Langley residents recall community events held at this site known as the Brookswood Hall. Many events and uses included community dances, wedding receptions, and even a 1944 postwar classroom due to Belmont school overflowing with students. We are thankful to our founding members, Judy Miskulin, Mary Stewart and Rick Buck for meeting so many years ago in the old library to make plans to form a drama club. Many others joined in to share their creative talents including Dorothy Brown, Alec and Dorothy Goostrey, Ron Bowcott and Derek Bissett. Since the clubs' formation in 1969, and after three years of moving and hauling in and out of Murrayville and Stafford schools in the Langley area, the Langley Players gratefully settled in the Brookswood Hall in 1972. The pioneer troupe, with Director Alec Goostrey, performed The Long Christmas Dinner. The admission prices were 1.00 for adults and .50 for students. In the late 90's with the support of the Township, the Province of BC and several generous community supporters, many improvements were made to the 1939 building which included restoring the interior theatre space, new seats, carpets, and stage resurfacing, a much improved lobby, backstage and parking lot. The biggest change to our club has been on stage, improving the quality of the craft through education. Through our Provincial group – Theatre BC, and along with other community theatres we are able to foster quality and skill for the production teams
