Deborah Meyer email
2x2 Opera was formed in 2004 by three residents of St Margarets; Film and video director Keith Cheetham, Arts administrator and fundraiser Deborah Meyer and musician Daniel Meyer, in response to the lack of opportunities for young people to take part in "classical" projects. Its main aim is to provide an opportunity for local children to participate in a professionally produced, high quality cross-educational project. The projects also draw on the many professional talents from within the community making the productions unique and special not only to local residents but to the many visitors who attend the performances.
A community opera group for young people, 2x2 Opera, based in St. Margaret's, Twickenham. We present opera to be performed by and for young people alongside professionals.

Argosy is an all encompassing group, which embraces people from all walks of life and seeks to nurture their talent however small or overblown it may be. Sure we have our spats and tiffs along the way, but they are nearly always born out of an overriding desire to do what is best for the family that is Argosy.
The 'Club Night' is on Monday evenings, at Ruislip Manor Sports & Social Club, Grosvenor Vale, Ruislip where those rehearsing for the next show and other members have a drink and a chat. Rehearsals are often in progress in the same room - hence the need for attendees not to talk too loudly! (but they always do) The club's second rehearsal night is usually on Thursdays. The venue varies but is usually in the Ruislip / Ickenham area.
Argosy Players construct all their own sets, and a team of set builders can always be found in their purpose-built hut on a Sunday morning from 10 am until approximately 1 p.m. These tend to be quite social occasions and whatever your ability, jobs can be found for anyone wanting to join in. Occasionally these Sunday Morning degenerate into a curry lunch at a local curry house.
The Annual General Meeting takes place during June, where Club members are encouraged to air their views. Main Committee members are elected at this time, along with a couple of smaller sub-committees, who are responsible for the organisation of social events and publicity. A new member can be elected on to any of these committees.
Members are kept in touch with events with email bulletins and a monthly newsletter

|Belmont Theatre Company|
Belmont Theatre Company (originally known as Belmont Players) was formed in 1946 as the drama section of the Belmont Community its first public performance, Charity Begins in 1947.
Over the years Belmont has been one the most successfully and well-supported drama societies in Harrow, Middlesex with a nucleus of loyal and devoted members. Whilst we still rehearse in the Harrow, Northwood and Carpenders Park areas, most of our productions are staged in Watford at The Pump House Theatre.
Belmont Theatre Company presents three main productions a year with a variety of shows ranging from comedies and dramas to musicals. For instance, our October 2010 production was A Murder is Announced, a murder mystery by Agatha Christie and in February 2011 we performed Laying the Ghost, a comedy by Simon Williams. In 2009 we were one of the first amateur groups to stage The Likes of Us, the first musical written by Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber.
In addition we have a lively social scene and participate in many other special events. In order to maintain our previous high standard of productions, Belmont Theatre Company is always looking for new members to act, work backstage (including lighting and sound) or with Front of House.

Join BROS TC and you won\’t regret it. You will become part of a very special society which prides itself on producing high quality shows again and again. Many of us have been members for decades. We have made life-long friends and have relished the opportunity to try our hand at a variety of roles both on stage and behind the scenes.
If you are a performer, do not be afraid to audition for our next production. We always cast at least one, sometimes several, new members in our shows. If you are unsuccessful in your first audition, there are many ways you can be involved in the current show and then try your hand again next time. We have an exciting programme of shows ahead.
People are pleasantly surprised how quickly they become part of the team. If you are lacking in confidence or skill, BROS is a great place to learn and improve: many of our members have professional qualifications/experience to share. If you would like to direct or act as production manager, choreograph or musically direct, we\’d love to hear from you. BROS TC always welcomes new talent.
If you are not a performer, you may like to get stuck in making/sourcing costumes, designing/building set, managing props, sound or publicity. Perhaps you\’d like to be on the stage crew or front of house?
Even if you do none of those things; enjoying our social events, attending some rehearsals and joining the theatre trips are very good reasons alone to join BROS TC.

Musicals, Straight Plays, Educational Theatre and Community Theatre Age Range: 16+ Rehearsals: Weekends
This company is run by James Ford-Bannister, Paddy Finn and Toni Whitham, provides the external framework for shows (including Production Management, Direction and Technical Support) so that Theatre can be brought to everyone from the young to the disabled. We primarily work on low-budget productions (amateur, school or community based) and are skilled at working thus. Founded in September 2007 we have since completed Les Miserables, TWINS (an adaptation of Blood Brothers) and are currently working on our community project Ford-Finn: HIJACK!. Our team, however, have worked on many production prior to the founding of the company.
The Good Companions ADS have been performing amateur drama at John Keble church in Edgware, Middlesex since 1933. Over the years we have presented all types of drama, as well as large-scale musicals and pantomimes. We are now one of the leading drama groups in the London Borough of Barnet. Each Spring we enter a full length play for the Barnet and District Drama Festival. In 2008 'A Voyage round my Father' won 6 awards. In the Summer we often do a series of workshops, a Music Hall, or a musical entertainment devised by a member of the group. These activities provide an opportunity for all members to take part. In the Winter we stage our Pantomime or a musical, 'Wind in the Willows', 'Peter Pan' & 'Calamity Jane' being among our recent successes.
We are very fortunate in having permanent use of the John Keble Hall, and members of our dedicated stage crew build our sets. Members not in the cast of a production often help with the building and painting of these. We have an extensive costume department, from which we hire to other groups and private individuals.
As well as our activities on stage we lead a busy social life with visits to see plays presented by other groups in our area. Our barbecues and Christmas parties are always well attended. We have many enthusiastic young members who are always willing to lend a hand in all areas of our work.
We are a friendly Group and consider ourselves Good Companions indeed!
We meet regularly at 8pm. on Tuesdays and offer a warm welcome to new members. Please come along if you are interested in joining or email us
|Harefield Amateur Dramatics Society (HADS)|
HADS is the local amateur dramatic society for the village of Harefield, between Rickmansworth and Uxbridge, in West London. We have been active since 1951 and currently produce 2 main plays a year plus a summer production, Christmas party and various other side-ventures.
We have members from Harefield itself, plus a wide surrounding area and of all ages, who are a mixture of frontstagers and backstagers. We have a reputation for quality performances, sets and effects and have garnered several awards.
We're not stuffy or dah-lings and recognise that people give up an enormous amount of their free time and dedication to producing performances and we try to make it fun and inviting. Of course, as with any drama group, there can be more drama off-stage than on, but that's half the fun ...
We are members of NODA (National Operatic and Dramatic Association) and supported by the HAA (Hillingdon Arts Association).
We meet at Park Lane Village Centre, Park Lane, Harefield, Middlesex (next to Harefield Library) every Tuesday evening at 8pm. Come and join us.
