The Manx Amateur Drama Federation was formed in the 1940s to support and encourage amateur theatre on the Isle of Man. We hold three events annually, the Easter Festival of Full Length Plays, the One Act Play Festival and the Young Actor of Mann competition.
The Easter Festival of Full Length Plays was started in 1950, bringing amateur groups from all over the IOM, UK and Ireland to compete for a place in the British All Winners Festival (BAWF) hosted by the National Drama Festivals Association. The One Act Play Festival is for Manx amateur drama groups, the winners of whom are also invited to compete at the BAWF, bringing talented Manx actors to a wider audience. The Young Actor of Mann competition gives aspiring young Manx performers a chance to compete for a £500 bursary towards attending a UK Summer School/Holiday workshop at a drama school of the winner’s choice.
In 2016 we had two local groups proudly representing the Island in both the full length and the one act sections of the BAWF hosted in Hertford. Legion Players performed a deeply moving production of ‘night, Mother and came Runner Up in the festival and Rushen Players presented a thought provoking piece on the treatment of female victims of sexual assault I Dream Before I Take the Stand. It was also exciting that the winner of our 2016 Easter Festival of Full Length Plays won the BAWF overall - White Cobra Productions with Scaramouche Jones.
I would like to take this opportunity to welcome you to the Manx Operatic Society, based in Douglas, Isle of Man Founded in1949, we are proud to be long standing and well established on the Island for providing not only entertaining shows each year but also an interesting and exciting hobby for all our members both on and off stage.
We have a large membership of various age ranges from 14 – 80 years old, many of whom have been in the society since their teenage years. We are an active member of The National Operatic and Dramatic Society (NODA) since their inception in 1983 and are proud to boast a number of awards won over the years.
We pride ourselves on the high standards we set ourselves, always ensuring that what you see on stage is a thoroughly professional production. This is why out membership return to us each year, bringing with them new members who have seen our shows and wish to be a part of a hard working, professional company.
We give our members exciting experience in theatre, both on and offstage which many have taken away with them to stage schools and universities.
