Welcome to Bonington Players

One of the leading theatre groups in Nottinghamshire, the Bonos have been presenting the very best of amateur theatre in Arnold for nearly 60 years.

We continue to offer our patrons three productions a season with a wide choice of theatre from serious drama to rip-roaring farce, from classic plays to modern pieces, and with occasional forays into musical theatre and pantomime.  Over the years we have performed the works of William Shakespeare, Oscar Wilde, Noel Coward, JB Priestley, Agatha Christie, Philip King, Alan Ayckbourn, Michael Frayn, Alan Bennett, Joe Orton, Ray Cooney, John Cleese, Nicolai Gogol, Georges Feydeau, Jean Anouilh, Arthur Miller, Neil Simon and many others.


The Bonos stage all their productions at the Bonington Theatre in Arnold, which is part of Arnold Leisure Centre complex at the top of High Street. There is ample car parking and it’s free to park in the evenings.
