As an award–winning amateur drama company, we are passionate about producing high quality theatre and providing an opportunity for local people to join in the creative process.

We normally put on three main productions each year – anything from musicals to thrillers – and we also have a thriving youth drama group for 9-15 year olds. Please get in touch for more information – a dramatic opportunity could be just around the corner!
