All Saints Players


Venue: All Saints Church Hall, Ardleigh Green Road, Hornchurch
Meet: Thursdays, 8 pm
New members always welcome. Experience not necessary, but a sense of humour is. A friendly group established more than 40 years ago. We aim to stage three full length productions a year, ranging from high drama to pantomime and music hall. We have also entered local drama festivals with some success.
Just as tall oaks from tiny acorns grow, so All Saints' Players evolved from small beginnings. Gang shows put on by the Scouts attached to the church fired the ambitions of some performers and so the idea of a drama group was germinated and the seeds sown.
ASPs was formed in 1966 and presented themselves to a responsive audience with "Nine to Five", a play written by a local playwright. Some of that very young cast are still members of the group to this day. Since then, the company has presented a regular assortment of productions ranging from high drama and farce to pantomime and music hall. Comedy has always been a favourite with both audiences and members of the group who have honed their skills in this medium to a high degree of achievement.
Things have not always gone smoothly for the company who suffered a severe setback in 1989 when a fire in the church hall just before the production of a pantomime destroyed a great deal of equipment and costumes. Lighting equipment, hired from an outside source and damaged in the blaze, was not covered by the group's insurance and so a large debt was incurred.
Nothing daunted, they fought back and soon cleared their financial burden and have since gone to possess their own extensive range of stage lighting along with complex switching gear. They also purchased a comprehensive sound system which includes a hard-of-hearing loop so that audience members who have hearing difficulties can enjoy the performance to the full.
The group has entered local festivals with some success. Their first entry was in 1995 when they won the award for best actress at the Havering Arts Council's festival. Set design and costumes have always played a major part in the group's thinking and both have been the receipt of favourable comments and awards by festival adjudicators and audiences. ASPs are lucky to have a home base from which to perform and house their extensive scenery and costume resources. Although the confines of the church hall are sometimes limiting, it does enable the group to present intimate theatre of high quality. Two members of the company who first trod the boards in the church hall have gone on to appear on the professional stage but whilst members are happy to accept demanding roles, the group's aim is to entertain, have fun and please audiences.
Recent productions include - Absurd Person Singular, Idle Hands, Pack of Lies, Aladdin, The Day After The Fair, The Late Mrs Early, Old Time Music Hall, Jack & The Beanstalk.

Barking Music and Drama


Facebook  Twitter  Instagram  


Barking Operatic Society was started in the 1970s as a Council night school class and was originally called Barking Operatic Workshop. Under the auspices of the former Barking Arts Council, the Group was led by local music teacher Ethel Giles, who was paid by the Council, and members paid night class fees to the Borough. Barking Operatic Workshop put on its productions in local halls and schools throughout the Borough. In 1979, Ethel Giles retired and another Barking music teacher, Carole Cable took over as Musical Director. The evening class was cancelled, but members wanted to continue their interest and formed Barking Operatic Society which was given a grant by Barking Arts Council to help pay for the Musical Director and a pianist. B.O.S. members collected membership fees and organised fundraising events and from the 1980s, were able to stage larger scale productions - usually in The Broadway Theatre, Barking. When Barking Arts Council was disbanded, B.O.S. was told to apply directly to the Grants Section of the Council for funding. This the Group has done ever since and B.O.S. is very grateful for the financial assistance it receives from the London Borough of Barking and Dagenham without which its ability to stage high quality musical productions would be severely curtailed. Carole Cable died unexpectedly in May 1997, but since January 1998, B.O.S. has been fortunate to have Carol Lucas, another Barking and Dagenham music teacher, as its Musical Director. The Society currently has more than 30 members and is now a well established feature of the musical life of the Borough. In November 2005 Barking Operatic Society decided to change its name and as from January 2006 has become... Barking Music and Drama, or...
Why not join us?...
Barking Music and Drama warmly welcomes new members........
If ever you long to bust into song, Yearn for the chance to get up and dance, As a matter of fact, if you want to act, Then pick up the phone and make yourself known.....

Basildon Operatic Society

Basildon Operatic Society

Facebook  Twitter  Instagram  


Basildon Operatic Society is an established amateur theatre company based in Basildon, Essex. The origins of the society go back to the 1930s when the organist at St. Mary's Church, Langdon Hills, decided to stage Pirates of Penzance to keep the children in the church choir out of trouble at the weekends. Curiously then known as St. Mary's Athletics Club (!), the society grew over the years to become first Laindon and District Amateur Operatic Society, and then more recently Basildon Operatic Society.
The society performs in both shows and concerts, currently producing its annual show in late May or early June, and its concerts in the weeks leading up to Christmas. Originally BasOp's shows were exclusively selected from Gilbert and Sullivan's Savoy operas, but these days a good number of musicals are produced too.
BasOp is unquestionably Basildon's leading musical theatre society.
BasOp can be contacted by the following means:

Annual Drama Festival
The Brentwood Catholic Theatre Club have been organising the annual competitive one act drama festival since 1948. This means that this year, the 66th, possibly makes it one of the longest running one act drama festivals' in the UK. We also think that it is one of the friendliest and we welcome old friends, new participants and young performers. Although originally only groups from within the Brentwood Diocese were allowed to enter, the competition is now open to any drama group or theatre company from anywhere in the UK.
Tickets for the Festival can be purchased on the door or booked in advance from the Brentwood Theatre on 01277 200305 www.brentwood-theatre.org
Performances start at 7.30 each evening, with the Saturday matinee (Youth Section) starting at 2.30.
It is great fun to watch and a great learning opportunity both for participating groups and students of drama and theatre studies and as many of the top local theatre companies have entered this should be another Festival to remember.
