Ballinger Common (between Chesham and Great Missenden)
Comedies, light and serious plays
Ballinger Players is a small community group consisting of approximately 15 members, of which about half are regular actors.
Ballinger is a hamlet in the Chilterns, midway between Chesham and Great Missenden in Buckinghamshire. Members of the group come mainly from the Chesham, Amersham, Wendover and High Wycombe area. Ballinger Players rehearse and perform in Ballinger War Memorial Hall and the group dates back to the Hall\’s inception in the 1920's.
The group stages either one or two productions a year. If you fancy a go at:
Sound & Lighting
or even just making the tea, having a new hobby and coming to our social events you would be made extremely welcome! No previous experience is necessary.
Over the years, our performances have included:
Seasons Greetings; The Enquiry; Sweeney Todd Shock \‘n\’ Roll Show; Absent Friends; Play On; Confusions; Dangerous Corner; The Secret Diary of Adrian Mole; Key for Two; No Time for Fig Leaves; Steel Magnolias; Shirley Valentine; Blithe Spirit; Trial and Error, Murder in Play, A Kiss on the Bottom, Trivial Pursuits, Dead Ringer, Curtains, The Dresser, Spectre Over London, Natural Causes and The Odd Couple.
Our productions usually run for three nights. Part of the 'Ballinger Experience' is that our seating is laid out around tables, rather than rows, and the audience is encouraged to bring their own refreshments.
This 'supper format' could mean people bringing anything from a bag of crisps and a Coke to a three-course hamper complete with wine and candelabra, or a Chinese takeaway.
If you would like to come along and find out more about the 'Ballinger Experience', you would be most welcome. For further information, please email or info Mark Lawrance or phone him on 07764 334480
The Carabosse team are a miscellaneous and eccentric group of creative individuals with a mixture of different theatre–making expertise and experiences.
Our mission is to produce and create exciting theatre and production projects. As we grow from strength to strength, we aim to emerge as a risk taking and innovative Company with a unique style.
We mostly work on ground breaking new work as part of our Literary Department and adapt established work to use as a starting point for new writing. Although we may also work on written plays they will all have our individual style and treatment.

Our versatile and imaginative group re-forms itself for every production, and we hold auditions for each new show, which means that we can attract the best talent available in the area. We started this policy with Company in 1992, and continued with subsequent productions, the more recent being A Slice Of Saturday Night and Into The Woods in 2002, and Closer Than Ever and Little Shop Of Horrors in 2003, Oh What A Lovely War! in 2004, The Boy Friend in 2005, Ladies 'n Love and Assassins in 2006, The Importance Of Being Earnest - our first play - in 2007, followed by Buddy. In 2008 we produced Death of a Salesman and City of Angels. In 2009 we produced And the World Goes Round and Stepping Out - the Musical, which we took on tour to village halls - a first for us!

The Company was founded by eight seasoned practitioners hoping to bring lovers of theatre together in order to collaborate on major projects. The team members, many with professional credentials, will share their plans for productions spanning various genres at Arts Central, Norfolk House, Milton Keynes on September 24.
Chairman Shirley Jones said: “Milton Keynes is such a vibrant new town with a constantly expanding pool of artistic talent. Etc Theatre Company hopes to pull together not only those who want to act, sing and dance but also people who are creative in behind the scenes roles too.”
The group will be kicking off with a couple of large-scale household name productions interwoven with a variety of challenging smaller offerings.
Secretary John Drinkwater added: “Over the years to come we’d like to build a collaborative theatrical experience that provides opportunities for personal growth, stretches individuals and gives them a chance to work across the artistic disciplines where pertinent”.

As the name suggests this amateur group are located in the North Bucks village of Hanslope. The group have been established over 30 years and some of those original members are still treading the boards!
The group have specialised in traditional pantomimes and have performed all of the popular shows. More recently they have performed pantomimes with a modern slant and one or two self written productions.
But they are a very versatile group and have performed farces, old time music hall, musical reviews, Christmas carol concerts, mediaeval banquets both in Hanslope and surrounding villages.
We are always looking for new members.
We always need more actors, but we also need people to help backstage and front of house during productions. Maybe you have skill or experience; painting backcloths and scenery, building sets, making props, lighting or sound. We are desperate for a wardrobe crew, we have costume, but it needs repairing and replacing. We need front of house people during productions to man the door, sell raffle tickets and serve refreshments.
If you\’re interested call Andy Grout on 01908 510 709
The Hazlemere Players is a small, friendly amateur dramatics group meeting once a week on Tuesdays at the Hazlemere Community Centre.

We pride ourselves on the professionalism of our productions, while making sure we have great fun along the way.

The High Wycombe Choral Society welcomes new members and Sponsor
The Society was founded in 1934, originally as the Wycombe Oratorio Choir, to perform classical choral music of a high standard in High Wycombe. The choir now numbers over 60 singers and performs two major choral concerts every year with a professional orchestra, and a number of smaller and less formal events.
Holmer Green Players was founded in 1980 when it split from the Village's Evening WI and became a drama group. Since that time it has produced two to three shows each year. In the late 80s the group formed a Junior section which rehearses and stages shows for the under 16 year olds.
Holmer Green Players meets on a Wednesday night at Holmer Green Village Centre on The Common at Holmer Green. At around 10.30 each Wednesday we go to the Earl Howe pub in Earl Howe Road, Holmer green for an after rehearsal drink.

Buckinghamshire (although we are on border of London/Middlesex)
The Iver Heath Drama Club was established in 1948 by John Hargreaves and members of the local Women's Institute.
Iver Heath is an interesting community: in Wood Lane there are mansions worth over £1 million and yet there are people living in energy and food poverty on benefits just 10 minutes walk away. At IHDC, everyone is equal and it is fantastic to see children & adults from accross the spectrum of wealth, culture, skillset and ability work together.
At the moment, we have over 40 members aged between 6 and 80 from a range of abilities, skills and disabilities. We receive no government or council funding, just surviving on donations and profits from performances. The club played a vital role in the building of the current Iver Heath Village Hall (SL0 0DA) which we call home and to this day maintains the stage lights and stage for the club, hall and other hirers to use. The club charges a £2 a week membership fee and has the lowest pantomime ticket prices in our region.
During the summer our club splits into three teams; Youth, Teens and Adults – to produce three shows and encourage the most out of everyone in our club. Then in Autumn/Winter we all come together to work on our pantomime. In 2014 over 550 people saw our panto over the 6 performances.
We are looking for new adult members (aged 20+) of all ages and abilities on and off stage. We currently have a waiting list for Children and Teenagers.
This becuase we are not a school - we are a volunteer group - and in accordance with our Child Protection Policy and physical size of the stage we cannot take new Under 18 members until later this year (2014). The club receives sponsorship from nearby Pinewood Studios.

Into drama? We are an amateur dramatic society (Amdram) based in Bierton nr Aylesbury, Buckinghamshire
The Jubilee Players were founded in 1961 at a time when most villages of any size in Buckinghamshire had their own amateur dramatic society. Now it is one of the few that maintain a regular programme of productions.
The Jubilee Players take their name from the Jubilee Hall in Bierton, our main venue for performances.
The aims and objectives of the society "shall be the study and performance of plays to foster an interest in the art of drama and all the funds shall be applied for the furtherance of these aims and objectives and for the charity as agreed by the society"
Each year, the Jubilee Players present:
A Christmas Pantomime
This provides the opportunity for younger members (10 to 18 years) to showcase their talents, taking part often in the principal roles. The cast can normally be large so there's plenty of chance for smaller parts and always the opportunity to have a sing-song.
Older members get the chance to let their hair down and misbehave a little playing a dame or a baddie.
The panto is often a classic tale with a modern spin, but we have put on original themed productions too; 2003 saw Jubilee Players member Adrian Ripley write 'Panto Goes wild West'.
Each Spring we put on a more serious production; a light hearted comedy, farce or drama.
We also put on special occasion events which involve the society getting amongst the community to perform short productions, often aimed at reaching members of the community who find it hard to come to us.
Not a Jubilee Player?
If you want to get involved with the society, please do not hesitate to contact one of us.
The Jubilee Players Regular Venue:
Jubilee Hall, Bierton, Aylesbury, HP22 5BU.
This is the regular venue for the plays and auditions.
Alternative Rehearsal Venue:
Hop Barn, Manor Road, Rowsham, HP22 4QS

Lacey Green, near Princes Risborough
Lacey Green Productions was founded in 1983. Since that time a proportion of our annual profits has always been given to good causes and our donations to date add up to more than £60,000
We like to vary the style of our productions and we also perform in a variety of venues. For example the group puts on “Dinner Theatre” where the audience comes to our home venue in Lacey Green Village Hall - a new hall built with funds from the Millennium Commission. At the other end of the scale we have our “Theatre at Home” - intimate theatre, where our performance goes into a private home. We write Murder Mysteries, performing them initially to our local audience and then taking them “On tour” to audiences elsewhere. We’re a well-travelled group!
Choice of plays is strongly influenced by the preference of the membership, at any given time. All new ideas are listened to and given an airing. Lacey Green Productions is always happy to re-invent itself!
There is no lower age limit, families with children are welcome. Membership is free.
To see more, go to www.laceygreenproductions.co.uk and follow us on Facebook.
The Longueville Little Theatre Company (LLTC) closed in 2014 - it was founded in 1977 by a professional actor Dermot Lee Baker. It used to stage three productions a year in March June and November and produced a Variety Show in September.
