British Community and Family History
For 74 years Estrela Hall was the home of the Lisbon Players, an unfunded amateur organization, whose participants have come from incredibly diverse national, ethnic, social and professional backgrounds. Since 1947 it has presented an uninterrupted theatre programme with a single objective: to produce theatre in English for Lisbon audiences. It has been an extraordinary breeding-ground for talent, and there are many people working in various branches of the theatre arts in Britain, Portugal and other places who will remember their time working at Estrela Hall as a crucial learning experience and a launch pad for their professional lives. For many others from other professional fields, it has provided a unique contact with the world of theatre and performance.
