Bangor Drama Club

Facebook  


Bangor, Co. Down

 

Bangor is situated on the North Down coast on the shores of Belfast Lough. The town dates back to the 6th century and was the site of one of the most important monastic settlements in Ireland. It was from here that St. Columbanus set out on his missionary work across Europe.
From the late 19th century to the middle of the 20th century it was a popular destination for day- trippers and holiday makers... mainly workers from Belfast just a 14 mile train ride away.
The Studio Theatre is snuggled away off Central Avenue
On average, the club puts on three productions a year and offers a range of Summer theatre productions by visiting companies in July and August. There are also regular play readings twice a month during the season.
Amateur theatre ...? Well we prefer the term, “Unpaid” because, although non-professional, we still believe in pursuing the highest production values.
Bangor Drama Club has reached the All Ireland Finals at Athlone 3 times in the last 5 years, won the Ulster Finals on many occasions and even the British One Act Finals.
We are always looking for new members who are interested in working on stage or behind the scenes....regardless of age or experience. So if you want to be a part of one of the most satisfying and exciting amateur events in Ireland, then contact us by email... via our website

Rosemary Drama Group


Ekenhead Memorial Halls, North Circular Road, Antrim Road. Rosemary

 

Rosemary are the most active drama group in North Belfast, putting on two plays a year as well as a series of rehearsed readings in the Autumn.
Rosemary Drama Group formed in 1963, producing "Romanoff and Juliet" by Peter Ustinov, for the Festival circuit and putting on "Beside the Seaside" by Leslie Sands, for the Portrush Summer Theatre. Nearly 50 years later, this is still what Rosemary Drama Group does; two major productions each year. The late February play is performed on the local Festival circuit and is usually a serious drama, sometimes the classics, sometimes something more modern. In 2011 and 2012 our festival productions both won 3 festivals, with 2011's production of Peter Quilters "Glorious" winning the Ulster Drama festival itself.
The summer productions in Portrush are always great fun and we are proud that we have an unbroken record there of 50 consecutive productions. We look forward to celebrating our 50th anniversary in 2013. These plays are always comedies, usually local ones by Sam Cree, which are very popular with audiences.
We are always looking for new members, regardless of age, gender, background or experience!
