Grenoside Pantomime Group


Grenoside Community Centre, Main Street, Grenoside, Sheffield, South Yorkshire S35 8PN

 

Join us!
Grenoside is a thriving village five miles north of Sheffield, in England. The Community Centre is the heart of the village and there are dozens of clubs and societies sharing it.
The Grenoside Pantomime Group has been running since 1976, putting on a pantomime at the end of January each year. Anything between 50 and 60 people are on stage in each show (though not all at the same time...) plus another 20 or so behind the scenes - making props, painting scenery, sound and lighting, filming, tickets, finance etc etc. We range from kids as young as five, up to adults who have stopped counting...
Rehearsals for each show (yes, we do rehearse...) start in September, so there's always been a sizeable gap between one show and the next. The Entertainment Group was formed in 2008 to fill this void, and to give our talented members another outlet for their performing skills - singing, dancing, monologues, comedy routines, Sword Dancing etc.
New members on- or off-stage are always welcome, and our website should tell you everything you need to know. If you're interested, get in touch!

Dev Swan has more than 35 years of teaching and performing as a professional actor, musician, musical director and director both of stage and screen, with many of his students going on to work professionally in all forms of performing arts
"Drama helps us makes sense of the World" The Arts Council
We provide though performing arts a way for students to express emotions,hopes,fears and dreams and offer a model of the world in which young people develop skills for coping with life.
Young people enjoy working together, have energy and possess imaginative insights surprising to adults. All they lack is experience We provide that experience and the skills to benefit from it.
Being part of a team helps them become more aware and learn to respect themselves and others. Performing together improves social skills and by learning self expression, they come to understand themselves better and grow in confidence.
We provide a step by step approach which means that no previous experience is necessary. We have high expectations of our students and we want them to be committed. It is the only way to achieve in the real world, we are also dedicated to putting the training onto practice.
Learning is nothing without performing and so there are,at least two shows a year and that will soon increase to three a year.
Watch our young people perform and the true magic unfolds
Of course, it's also amazingly good fun
Our activities include : Amateur Dramatics, Theatre, Singing, Public Speaking, Poetry, Music Groups, Film Making and Dancing.

Guiseley Amateur Operatic Society


Guiseley Theatre, The Green, Guiseley, Leeds, West Yorkshire LS20 9BT

 

We are a very well-respected amateur company, based in Guiseley. The Society is known and respected throughout the local community, and we value this relationship. We pride ourselves on a high standard of performance and a friendly, welcoming atmosphere. GAOS is one of the longest-established amateur theatrical groups in West Yorkshire. We have always performed musicals and operetta with one main production each year - usually in February-March. We try and adopt a professional approach to our productions, working with experienced and professional production teams and usually cast by open audition. We design and build our own sets and this enables us to get the maximum working space from a restricted stage area. We hire costumes for most shows and usually work with a pit orchestra of 10 or 12 players. We design our own theatre programme each year, winning the NODA North East Programme Competition for the last four or more years and the NODA National Competition with our programme for The King and I. We have a very loyal and long serving core membership but new members, young or old, either playing or back stage, are always needed and made welcome. GAOS has been a very keen supporter of The National Operatic and Dramatic Association, having hosted many NODA events at the theatre as well sending large parties of members to the North-East Area\’s Annual Weekend. Guiseley Theatre was built in 1867 by Sir Matthew William Thompson. He gave the building to the people of Guiseley for the use of the community. At that time it was known as 'The Town Hall', and although it was maintained by Guiseley UDC and then Aireborough UDC, it was never used as municipal offices other than housing a part-time Rates collection office. Shortly after Aireborough was incorporated into Leeds Metropolitan District, the Authority considered closing Guiseley Town Hall. The Hall, however, was still used by many community groups, including GAOS, and so, with the cooperation of all the users, the Society took over the administration of the Hall in 1985. We have continued to administer the renamed Guiseley Theatre for the benefit of the whole community of Guiseley and its environs. During the time GAOS have administered the Theatre we have: Refurbished many parts of the building. Redecorated throughout. The main auditorium has been repainted in a rich colour scheme to give it the 'feel' of a living, intimate theatre. Constructed lighting and sound control rooms and installed an amplification system. Renewed the central heating boilers and hot water system. Built a scenery construction workshop at the rear of the Theatre. Converted old wartime ARP offices behind the theatre into a self contained rehearsal room. Redecorated ground floor rooms. Conducted a very successful fundraising campaign in order to complete replace the seating in the stalls area of the auditorium. Stairlift recently installed
