Memory Lane

We reached our 21st anniversary in 2008 and celebrated with a rendition of Shakespeare's Taming of the Shrew in the village Church. Although the frequency of our productions has reduced we still manage to do a pantomime every two years or so and a summer outdoor play by one of England's more celebrated playwrites every other year. Although we like to put on the occasional thriller our first love is comedy and this is a vein that we intend to continue.

One of the great things about community drama is the mutual support that groups lend to eachother. It is often a good idea to check out a play or pantomime before staging it, especially if it is likely to stretch your resources. If you are likely to be staging one of the plays in our list we are happy to share the benefit of our experience with you. You never know, we may have found our way around a particular challenge.
