September finds us already a month into rehearsals for the start of our new season, having spent the summer reading and assessing potential plays. Everyone in the society has an input on our play selections where we try to arrive at a balanced and varied programme. The end result this year sees three very different comedy productions; SYLVIA’S WEDDING, a lovely 1970s set comedy by Jimmie Chinn; BLACK COMEDY, an unusual and riotous farce by Peter Shaffer and NEIGHBOURHOOD WATCH, a dramatic comedy by the master of this genre, Alan Ayckbourn.
Live theatre still remains one of the best forms of interactive entertainment so please come along and enjoy the experience. We look forward to seeing you and so helping us to keep local amateur drama alive and well in our community.

Here’s a nice story. When Lizzie Dixon posted on our Facebook page from Dubai recently with a publicity poster from our 1999 performance of Absurd Person Singular we were intrigued. Turns out her Grandad was David Walters and he produced many of our posters from that era. Sadly, David died some years ago but Lizzie treasures his original poster drawings and has shared some of them with us. He clearly was an inspiration to Lizzie, as she told us;
“He was fantastic! He inspired me to do acting when I was younger and gain a degree in advertising.”
Indeed David not only used his artistic talents on our posters and programmes but acted on stage too. A well-liked man.
Lizzie saw our posting of photos from our recent production of the play and it prompted her to contact us. She has more of his posters and we will be adding them to our archive shortly.
Our rehearsal room is decorated with posters from plays over the years and because of Lizzie we now have some extras that we never knew existed!
