The Man In The Iron Mask

So, there's just one more rehearsal to go for "The Man In The Iron Mask" before we get into the theatre for show week.  It has been a fantastic show to be involved with, with so many laughs along the way.  The cast and director have worked so very hard, not only at lines and characterisation but also at whacking each other with huge great swords!  The fight scenes have been great fun to be a part of and they will look spectacular on stage - I think there are 20 people with weapons of various sorts on stage at the same time in one scene!  And it's not just stunts you can expect - it really is very funny with drama and romance along the way. What more could anyone ask for?

It has been a little while since The Company took on a swashbuckling spectacular like this (Treasure Island back in 2010) but it's what we do best.  Please do get booking tickets so you don't miss out.

We're performing at The University Drama Studio from Wednesday 1st until Saturday 4th July.
Doors open at 7pm for a 7:30pm start.  Tickets paid for on the door are £9 (£6 for students and OAPs) but if you book in advance via our website or via this link you save 50p per ticket.

Details of auditions for our October production of "The Hound Of The Baskervilles" will be coming around soon (or on display in the foyer of the theatre during show week - another reason to come along!) and if you ever want any more information about what we're doing and how you can get more involved, please email me at

Thanks for your ongoing support.

Season announcement

Hello all,

I am delighted to announce that, after a very competitive play choosing meeting last week, we now have a fabulous season lined up taking us well into 2015.
Our October 2014 show will be Arthur Miller's classic family drama, "A View From The Bridge". We welcome new director, Gareth Pert, who will be ably assisted and supported by our regular members.
This will be followed in February 2015 by "Emma". This is a return to Jane Austen country following our 2007 production of "Pride and Prejudice" and marks a welcome return to directing for Alan Wade.
Our summer 2015 blockbuster will be adapted and directed by Alison Munro, who has also been away from the stage for far too long. We will be bringing you “The Three Musketeers” which I'm sure will delight swashbucklers on stage and off.
All of this of course follows this year’s summer show, "The Man of Mode"; rehearsals start next week and we look forward to your support.
