Don't Blame it on the Boots by NJ Warburton 

No one would have blamed it on the boots if only Kate had produced Macbeth instead of Hamlet, or Ophelia hadn't been so attractive and naive, or Eric had smaller feet and wasn't the drama group's prize flirt, or Liz's father hadn't been an actor who once trod the boards at Stratford in those self-same boots. 

Cast

Ophelia - Poppy Hardwicke

Eric - Paul Gorsuch

Kate - Sadie Fisher

Liz - Jane Lunn

Lockdown Little Grimley by David Tristram

The fifth in a series of short plays following a hapless Amateur Dramatic Society. In lockdown the Chairman Gordon calls for an emergency meeting, socially distanced, to discuss his idea of the next production - a touching love story set in a hospital, with all profits going the NHS. But based on previous events - will the NHS actually benefit?

Bernard - Pete Hutton

Margaret - Laura Parsons

Gordon - John Cropper

FUTURE PRODUCTIONS

Activities are back on track

We held our first workshops of the season on 12 March, led by Stevie Thompson from The Rude Mechanicals on creating characters from the Commedia dell'Arte tradition.  Great fun was had by all, although the adults might have been a little stiff the next day!  Join us to sign up for more workshops over the coming months:  the next one is on Theatrical Costume Design.
