Pendle Borderline Theatre


Pendle

 

Pendle Borderline Theatre Company was formed in 1999 from its previous incarnation as Pendle Civic Players.
The change of name heralded a change of direction for the company, which has gone from strength to strength ever since.

Pendle Hippodrome Theatre Company! An exciting new start for the owner groups of the prestigious Pendle Hippodrome Theatre.
Resulting from months of serious discussion between the members and general committees of Colne Operatic Society and St. John's Great Marsden Operatic & Dramatic Society, the two groups made the decision to disband with a view to combining resources and forming a new organisation to meet the challenges of the 21 st century.
A decision not made lightly considering the long established traditions of both groups and the strong commitment to their members, as you can see from our archive pages, the two groups have served the area collectively for in excess of 140 years.
The possibility of a closer relationship between the two groups has been mooted for some considerable time and over recent years for many and varied reasons the case for amalgamation has become much stronger resulting in each group calling an extra ordinary general meeting with a single item on the agenda, the dissolve of the group.
With the decisions made and the new organisation formed, we look forward to a strong, challenging and exciting future, with an organisation focused on providing the members of both the adult group and the youth group greater opportunities to explore and present all aspects of the performing arts.
Pendle Hippodrome Theatre Company in it's infancy will face many challenges but is fortunate that within it's membership there is a wealth of expertise on which to draw, hopefully ensuring a long and happy future for all members.
It would be folly to assume that everything will now just fall into place and that the Theatre Company will go from strength to strength engineered by some strange and benevolent force. We can be what we want to be and we can achieve what we want to achieve but only by serious commitment and hard work. We must not fall into the comfortable state of thinking that it is now up to someone else, we must not expect to hold out our hands and receive everything we want, we must indeed hold out our hands but to receive the tools to enable us to create the future that we want for our new organisation.
Type: Musicals and plays
Rehearsals: Usually Monday & Thursday

Pepperpot Hill Theatre Group

Darwen

 

Formed and based in Darwen, with members from far and wide, the critically-acclaimed Pepperpot Hill were created in 2003.

Bolton

 

We have performed some 94 plays (including theatre suppers and theatre dinners), the actors and plays winning many prestigious awards along the way. The majority of these performances were held at our previous venue Chorley Old Road United Reform Church, but sadly, in 2003, the church and its hall were demolished and since that time, we have been performing wherever we can hire premises.
This, as can be appreciated, eats into our funds before we even consider which plays to perform! Seeking a permanent venue is far from easy, as there are many aspects to consider – some obvious, some less so - but we continue to be hopeful of finding something, somewhere, and any suggestions regarding this would be much appreciated.
Our plays cover the full spectrum of types from farces to historical dramas. Phoenix are open to all ages and would always welcome new members either on stage or helping behind the scenes.
We are based in Bolton, Lancashire in the glorious Northwest.
If you have any queries, then please do not hesitate to contact us via our website or social media.

Preston Gilbert and Sullivan Society


Preston

 

The society was formed in 1954, when Mr. Eric Hindle and a Mrs. Luveasa, both teachers at Trinity School Preston, started a Gilbert & Sullivan Group within the school.
With the opening of the Guild Hall complex in 1972/73, the group now called 'The Gilbert & Sullivan Society' moved their productions to the Charter Theater and also to the Lowther Pavilion at Lytham, St Annes. In 1999 the company moved again this time to the more intimate setting of 'The Preston Playhouse' was they have performed ever since, as well as continuing at the 'Lowther'.
The company itself continues to perform to award winning standards with a new generation of singers, all blessed with the same love of Gilbert and Sullivan that Eric Hindle had all those years ago.
The Society endeavours to run a programme of social events alongside the schedule of rehearsals. Preston G&S Society is one of the select set of performing companies that have made the Preston Playhouse a home and there are plenty of opportunities to get involved with the working of the Playhouse and developing it as a performing venue for Preston G&S and the other companies using the theatre.

Rochdale

 

Rochdale Musical Theatre Company (formerly Rochdale Amateur Operatic Society) has contributed to the musical and cultural life of the local area for more than a century. We changed our name in 2015 as in more modern times, musical theatre more accurately describes our activities.
Although no performers are paid, the productions are certainly not of an amateur nature. We currently produce shows and concerts at Heywood Civic Centre. The company is a registered charity and has raised more than £50,000 for local causes over the years.
RMTC is made up of a dedicated team of muscial theatre lovers. Our large scale productions have received fantastic reviews as well as many NODA nominations and awards. Our talented members include highly trained singers, dancers, and actors, many of whom have gone on to work professionally.
Visit our shows or join our team – we look forward to seeing you soon.
