If you’ve got theatrical ambitions, whether as a budding thespian or wanting to work behind the scenes, Doha Players want to hear from you.

The community theatre group has a packed schedule coming up and there are plenty of chances to get involved.

The Importance of Being Earnest
This is a quick, witty comedy in which two men try to find out how long they can pretend their name is Earnest. Identities get mixed up, babies are found in handbags and nonsense ensues. Set in the late 19th century, expect interweaving romances, lots of laughs and big surprises in on one of the most well-known plays of all time.
The show will run during May and auditions are scheduled for March 2. To book a slot, email

We Will Rock You
Set in a dystopian world, the musical tells the story of a group of Bohemians who struggle to restore the free exchange of thought and fashion and live music in a distant future where everyone dresses, thinks and acts the same. Featuring 24 of Queen’s best-loved hits, including We Are The Champions, Bohemian Rhapsody, Don’t Stop Me Now and Radio Ga Ga, We Will Rock You is guaranteed to blow your mind.
The show is planned for October or November this year and auditions will be coming up soon. For a casting brief, please email
