Holton Players


Oxford

 

We've now completed twenty-one years as an active, innovative drama group centred in Holton, just outside Oxford. We generally offer either one or two full-scale productions a year, with smaller events and entertainments in between. Our choice of plays has ranged widely, from Coward and Wilde to Chekhov and Stoppard, and from Ayckbourn to recent hits like Jeffrey Bernard is Unwell and The Thirty-Nine Steps. We also make a point of presenting works of local origin or interest, including those of our resident playwright Kit Arnold, whose Collected Works, published by us, can be obtained from the contact below. Most of our productions are put on in Holton\’s well-equipped Village Hall, and we have our own up-to-date lighting and sound hardware. We welcome anyone interested in supporting us (on stage, backstage or front of house), and would particularly like to hear from younger people who want to gain some varied experience in acting and/or production.

Kennington Amateur Dramatic Society - KADS

Kennington Village Centre

 

In 1979, a small band of enthusiasts met to discuss the possibility of starting a village drama group. They gathered together people with varied talents and the result was a home written pantomime The Beggars of Bagley Wood. This was performed in the old village hall and the then library doubled as a changing room. From that day it continued to flourish and they found themselves producing 2–3 shows each year consisting of pantomimes, plays and various musical performances. In more recent years this has spread to entering the local Drama Festivals, where we have gained many prizes and cups. KADS is also a founder member of the Oxfordshire Drama Network (ODN).
The secret to our success has been enthusiasm and commitment from everyone involved. Over the years we have seen people come and go, many of our younger members have returned, some with their own families and three have become professional actors. Our youth group has increased to the extent that we now have a waiting list.
We are always happy to welcome new members to KADS. If you would like to join or help out in any way, please be sure to visit our Join Us page for more information.
Rehearsals every Tuesday night (19:30 - 22:30) in the Kennington Village Centre (opposite the Tandem restaurant).
You must be of Secondary School Age (age 12+) to join.
UNLESS a parent is also a member of the cast.

The choir was formed in 1928 by Welshmen who had come to Oxford looking for work at William Morris's car factory and Pressed Steel. Some of us are Welsh, many of us have Welsh connections, but together, we all enjoy the unique four-part harmony that makes a choir Welsh.

Oxon Drama is an Oxfordshire based group, providing Drama Classes for Adults. Experienced Actor/Director and Teacher Rachel-Mae Brady runs Beginner and Intermediate Level courses, all of which run for eight weeks and are very modestly priced. In addition to extensive experience in the industry both as an Actor (credits include 'The Tudors', 'Vikings', 'Camelot' etc), and Director, Rachel-Mae is also the resident drama teacher on the prestigious Oxbridge Academic Programs, and previously taught for the Irish Academy of Dramatic Arts.
The aim of the classes is to provide an enjoyable atmosphere for people, in which to learn and create. Often when people take a drama class, their biggest worry us that they'll be pushed outside their comfort zone, so Oxon Drama establishes a fun and supportive group dynamic. This leads to students taking risks and unleashing their creativity. Oxon Drama encourages students to develop the raw talent they've always had, into wonderful performances.
Beginners' Classes start on Wed 21st Jan from 6pm-7pm. Intermediate Classes start on a Tues 20th Jan from 7pm-9pm. All classes run once a week for 8 weeks at the Ark T Centre, Cowley.
