Moretonhampstead Variety Group



The Moretonhampstead Variety group has been producing an annual pantomime for over 70 years. It started as a group of friends who wanted to produce a variety show for the summer, hence the name, that expanded into two productions annually, the variety show in the summer and a pantomime in the winter.
Although the Summer show no longer exists, the Winter pantomime is still flourishing and a production takes place every year during the half term school holiday week in February.
We currently have approximately 40 members including actors, directors, backstage, front of house members and we are always looking for someone new to join our happy band.
We start rehearsing at the end of September, on a Tuesday night in the local Parish Hall
If you would like to join us or need to know anything about us then please contact us contact@moretonvarietygroup.co.uk

Ottery Saint Mary

Ottery Community Theatre is an amateur society formed in 1985 following the very successful Colway Theatre Trust production of Ottery’s community play ‘The Ballad of Tilly Hake’ by Sheila Yeger. The society’s objective is ‘”to promote the performing arts and to encourage public appreciation of such arts in the community of Ottery St Mary and District”. Since its formation, the society has staged some memorable productions. Have a look at our Past Productions galleries on our website for a glimpse of what we do.
We've been affiliated to the National Operatic and Dramatic Association (NADA) since our earliest days. We like to be different and virtually all our productions are home-grown and written by one of our members.
We produce a pantomime every year in January and usually put on a production in July as well. For the last few years, the July productions have been shorter plays so there has been time for the audience to enjoy a light meal as well.
We are always on the lookout for actors, writers, front-of-house helpers plus anyone willing to get involved in any aspect of back-stage (music, costumes, set construction etc). Anyone of any age from school year 6 and upwards is most welcome and don't let lack of previous experience put you off joining in - we've all had to start somewhere.
You can get in touch via our website or by emailing otterycommunitytheatre@gmail.com. we look forward to hearing from you.

Perform Plays and an Annual Pantomime - Age Range: All age groups - Rehearsals: Monday and Thursday

Sidmouth Amateur Dramatic Society Ltd


Heather Hodge (Company Secretary SADS.Ltd), 43 Temple Street, Sidmouth, EX10 9BA Tel: 01395 577816
The Society was founded in 1922 and until 1956 (with a gap during the war years) produced one play a year at the Manor Pavilion Theatre in Sidmouth. From 1957 - 1964, two plays a year were presented and after a few years these were increased to three which continues to this day. The famous 1920's music hall/variety entertainer Gene Gerrard and author Ron Delderfield, were both prominent members of the Society.
Our annual pantomimes were started in 1978 with great success and in 1979, due to a gap in the theatre\’s programme during peak summer visitor\’s season, four local societies were asked to fill a gap in the theatre\’s programme. This was due to the professional company ‘The Mercury Players’ deciding to delay their return to Sidmouth and the Council wished the theatre to be used during the summer months for entertainment for the visitors so for five years, SADS presented four plays and a pantomime.
Due to the financial success of our pantomimes, it enabled us in 1986 to re-build our headquarters/workshop. This is situated within ‘The Byes’ Sidmouth, on land owned by the National Trust and although we built the hall and maintain it, the building remains the property of the National Trust to whom we pay an annual rent to use the facilities. The building proudly boasts a rehearsal room, a large scenery dock for construction, painting and storage. We have a small kitchen, toilet facilities, and a store devoted for all our props. The upstairs section of the hall is home to our extensive wardrobe department. We hold a tremendous amount of lighting & sound equipment which is stored at the Manor Pavilion but is available for hire at a competitive rate.
We have a thriving junior and youth group which meets on a Wednesday and they staged their own show at the Manor Pavilion in April 2010.
Over the last two years, we have had entries in the Exmouth one-act play festival. The first year was an adult entry plus a separate junior entry. This year saw just an adult entry, written by two of our members and which won the award for \‘Best Original Script\’. Two actors were also nominated for best character actor & actress.
We present an active social programme as well which includes such things as Barbecues, Quiz nights, Film night with Fish & Chip supper, skittles and play reading evenings.

Squire Theatre

South West

Squire Theatre is a new Devon based company offering industry standard stage combat training to schools and theatre groups such as yourself. We offer a range of services including armed and unarmed combat, theatrical effect such as blood and squibs and historical consultancy for plays and film productions. Squire offers practical experience from industry professionals developing unique skills that can be utilised within your training program or productions. We aim to provide affordable workshops dedicated to introducing students and amateur performers to the fundamental workings of dramatic combat so as to encourage safe and professional working practices and all levels of theatre.
Stage combat builds confidence, self control, trust and physical fitness all essential qualities for any actor. Be it a youth production or a rep company, a high quality combat scene is a true joy to watch. After all conflict is the essence of drama and the epitome of conflict is combat. Stage combat is so much more than a way of providing filler for the ever dreaded stage direction 'they fight.' It is an all encompassing performance skill combining the physical fitness and control of dance with the close character study of acting and the practical know how of riggers and stage managers. Be it creating a convincing Shakespearian duel or a truly slick slapstick routine stage combat has something for everyone.
As well as gaining a highly sought after performance skills actors and students will also have the opportunity to work alongside industry professionals gaining valuable insight into the reality of the performance industry. As company manager I personally take responsibility for all combat based workshops using my knowledge and experience as a working actor combatant and stunt performer to introduce more people to a side of drama that is seldom explored in traditional training and yet one of the most exciting. I know a lot of us (particularly the lads) only got into performing in the first place after having watched any number of Jackie Chan, Van Dam, Batman combinations and always relish the chance to be an Errol Flynn like action hero.
Unlike a martial art or sporting activity stage combat is an art form which is founded on cooperation and support rather than competition. It is primarily non contact although with confidence groups can explore cooperative contact techniques such as lifts and throws and is by its very nature highly safety conscious (the first rule of fight club is...no one gets hurt!).
Workshops are very flexible and can be booked according to your needs. Squire also runs an artist in residence scheme which can be tailored to your individual needs combining long or short term tuition in fights, falls, and effects. All our staff are fully CRB checked and all props used adhere to British safety standards.
All students must be 10 years old or over. Our instructors are all high grade drama graduates and are certified by the British Academy of Dramatic Combat. For the sake of quality we also insist that all our instructors have received a level 3 distinction grade from the BADC (British Academy of Dramatic Combat) and nothing lower. For more information on our work with schools and to book Squire Theatre please visit our website and click on the secondary section. Or if you would like more information as to my personal work within the stunt industry please visit my personal website.
