The English-Speaking Players Association
As the current President of Thespa it is my great pleasure to welcome you to our Thespa website.
Subsequently Thespa started the Salon Varietes theatre in Fuengirola which was then taken over later by the SALVA Management Board.
Thespa stands for "The English-Speaking Players Association" and was formed over 35 years ago with the object of encouraging live theatre on the Costa del Sol.
During the years Thespa has evolved until it has become an acted play-reading group. The main objective is still to promote theatre in a friendly atmosphere, but also to give aspiring actors, actresses and playwrights the opportunity to be involved.
The current format allows for actors to use scripts, to dress appropriately and to use the minimum of stage sets. Our evening usually consists of two one-act plays with a 3-course meal in the interval. This mix of social and theatre aspects is what makes a Thespa evening so special.
Thespa performs at the Masonic Hall, Edificio Bougainvillea, Avenida de Los Boliches 108 in Los Boliches, on the last Wednesday of each month from September to May. The venue is accessible by bus and train and there is plenty of car parking in the vicinity. The evening starts at 7.00 p.m. ("curtain up" at 7.30 p.m.) and normally lasts until approximately 10.45 p.m. All seats must be booked in advance.
See Contact Page for details of how to find us and book.
If you are looking for a good evening out, an excellent meal and entertainment …then come along …..members, old and new , and visitors. You will all be most welcome.
