A Chocolate Theatre


Swindon

 

We are a new musical theatre society located in Swindon, Wilts which is in the South West of England. The society was created in January 2010 by founder members Phil Corcoran, Kevin Kearns & myself, Michaela Kearns. We are all \’seasoned\’ actors, with a real passion for theatre. After performing with several other societies, we recognised a real opportunity, whereby we wanted to create one unique society, using the creme de la creme from various other societies & musical bands thus creating a very strong, talented company of people, all from different backgrounds - & here we are today!

Chippenham

 

A little dramatic is a after school drama club for children aged 6-14 years old. We strive to coach children key skills within drama to build their confidence, imagination skills, concentration, discipline and teamwork. We do this with engaging fun classes. The children will work on scripts and performance techniques to put on their very own performance to show their guardians. They will also learn the key skills needed to prepare for Lamda/Trinity exams. At a little dramatic we strive to extend the children's knowledge within the performing arts industry ready for school and further education.

Athelstan Players


Malmesbury

 

The Athelstan Players is Malmesbury’s local amateur dramatic group, started over 60 years ago and still going strong today. We are lucky enough to have our own drama studio (opposite the football club behind Somerfields), where we rehearse twice a week for the current production, occasionally perform, and once in a while get out the fizzy pop for a good old knees up.
We try to put on at least four productions a year, a Carnival Revue, and a Christmas show, which usually involves everyone and anyone, young and old. Also a full-length play, or music hall, or series of One Act plays. Each year we enter a one act play for the All England One Act Play Festival, where we compete against other local amateur drama groups and usually come away with a trophy or two or three or four!
We are also pleased to be invited to, and happy to entertain at, some of the local retirement homes at Christmas and Easter, and you will often see us with our charity bucket warbling a few carols at the Christmas Late Night Shopping evening in the High Street.
We are always looking for new members to join us and give our audiences some new faces to look at, so if you’ve not had a go since school, come and have a go now!
We also welcome anyone with a yearning to direct, pull curtains, sew costumes or shift scenery. There’s always something to do (sense of humour a big asset).
If you want to know more about becoming a member or patron please contact our current chairman Christine Mace on 01666 822691

Our repertoire varies widely, from classic Broadway shows to contemporary musicals, as well as the much-loved Gilbert and Sullivan operettas.
We meet in The Salisbury (Castle Street) Social Club, Scots Lane, Salisbury. Regular rehearsals are held there on Tuesday and Thursday evenings from 7:30 – 10:00pm. (Rehearsals of course become more frequent nearer a show week.)

Neston

 

We are a group of people aged between 18 and 80 who meet every Thursday at7.45pm at Neston Memorial Hall. The group has been going since 1977 and we still have one founder member involved. We aim to put on two productions a year ranging from comedy to classics, you name it, we’ll have a go! However, we are not much into opera and musicals as we do not currently have enough bodies to do that sort of thing, and perhaps not the talent either!. We have patrons who support us and receive free tickets to performances and we enjoy other social activities during the year to which our patrons are invited. We are always looking for new faces to put on stage, some of us original members are getting a bit old to pass for ‘20’ besides which it is always a good thing to get new faces up there and stop our audiences becoming bored with the ‘same old’! Of course you don’t need to act to become involved. We are always on the lookout for talent to undertake back stage jobs too and we are trying to put together a ‘friends’ list – people who are willing to help us during the production week but don’t want to get involved full time, eg serving teas, selling programmes etc. So whichever way you choose to get involved you can always be assured of a warm welcome. We would love to hear from you.
