The Huddersfield Thespians are an extant amateur dramatic theatre company.
They were founded in 1920 by Robert Montgomery, a former headmaster of Hillhouse Central School, and James R. Gregson. During their first season (1920-21) they performed eight plays, including: "Quality Street", "Mrs. Warren's Profession" and the Yorkshire comedy "Fooils and th'er Brass".
The group won the 1926 British Drama League's competition and subsequently competed for David Belasco Cup in New York.
