Established in 1950, we have produced over eighty productions from Operetta to West End Musicals ... A wide range of acting, singing and dancing talent combine to deliver an irresistible mixture of youthful energy and experienced stagecraft. Our professional production team provide direction that is both dynamic and sensitive to the individual production. Like most amatuer companies we are always looking for new members. If you feel like having a go, come along to a rehearsal and have a look for yourselves ... Not an actor or dancer and still feel you could offer something, we still need people to help backstage (costumes and scenery etc).’

’Would you like to join us? We'll be really pleased to see you! New members are always welcome. Our minimum age is 16 but we don't stick rigidly to that and younger people can join us as long as they are really keen and their parents agree. In fact there have been under 16s in all of our recent shows. Our annual Gilbert & Sullivan show is in the Autumn. Rehearsals for it start in May ... As well as singers, we need helpers in all theatre areas and they are made just as welcome. They generally get involved nearer the date of the show though that depends on the area they are helping with.’
