It has also presented the operettas of Gilbert and Sullivan, Franz Lehár and Johann Strauss II.
Members of the adult society put on a show annually in the spring. These productions take place in Saffron Walden Town Hall. SWMTC\’s Youth Group perform in the autumn each year and feature performers who range from 11 through to 18.

SWMTC is proud of the professionalism of its musicals and we often employ professional directors, musicians and choreographers to ensure that our shows are of the highest standards .
The company was formed in 1922 as Saffron Walden Amateur Operatic Society. In 2007 it changed its name to Saffron Walden Musical Theatre Company.
Its Youth Group has been presenting shows since 1974. In this time the society has put on well over 100 productions.
We are an inclusive and welcoming society that encourages involvement from anyone, young or old, who would like to be involved in putting on shows, whether as a performer, technician or part of the back stage team. Our commitment has ensured that many of our young performers have moved on to drama schools and work in the professional theatre.

We usually produce two shows per year, one on a large scale (such as the Queens Theatre, Hornchurch), and another smaller show usually supporting our local theatre at Brentwood.
We are often asked to entertain at various functions and dinners, and although this is time-consuming, some of the members are occasionally able to oblige (this rarely involves the whole membership).

South Woodham Ferrers

SWATS are a local amateur theatre group, based in South Woodham Ferrers in Essex. We produce three productions a year and have a great deal of fun doing it. As a theatrical group traditionally we've performed dramas and comedies by authors such as Alan Ayckbourn, Mike Leigh, Noël Coward et. al. with the odd revue and occasional musical thrown in for good measure. We perform at the Village Hall in South Woodham Ferrers.
SWATS meet on a Thursday evening at 8:00pm in the South Woodham Ferrers Village Hall, and we always welcome new members. Membership is open to anybody aged sixteen or over, who lives in South Woodham Ferrers or the surrounding district. Please note, surrounding district is treated very liberally, we have had members from Southend-on-Sea and Chelmsford in the past. So if you are bored with the endless round of soaps and reality shows on the television, perhaps you should consider joining a drama group. Amateur Dramatics is a hobby with something for everyone whether you want to act or not. If you don't want to act, there is plenty to be done behind the scenes. If you have a technical flair there's Sound, Lighting, Set Design and Construction. If you're an organiser there's Publicity, Props and Stage Management. If you lean tend towards the creative there's Costume, Make-up and of course Director. Finally if you're mad there's Prompt!, that all important person who is usually surplus to requirements on the night. Each role will require one or two volunteers (or conscripts) to fulfil it. During some productions certain roles will be surplus to requirements. Almost all roles will require you to be available for the entire week of the show.

In 1951, the year of the Festival of Britain, the Southend Shakespeare Company was formed for the study and performance of Shakespeare and his contemporaries. Over the years this programme has been extended to include more of the classics.
Nowadays the SSC is one of the few theatre groups in the south-east, professional or amateur, that dedicates itself to performing plays from a classical repertoire.
In recent years our productions have included works both comic and tragic, ancient and modern, by authors as diverse as Chekhov, Sheridan, Wilde, Calderon, Ibsen, Stoppard, Euripides and Arthur Miller.
Our Summer open air tours have seen us performing at various venues in Essex, and Stratford-Upon-Avon. We are also one of the most prolific drama groups around, normally producing at least four productions each year. Consequently we are always on the look out for new faces!
We always welcome new members who may be interested in acting, working backstage or any other aspect of the Company. Associate membership is also available, bringing you full details of all our productions, a regular Newsletter, and complimentary tickets to certain shows.

The WI before the Second World War originally founded the Group but it became known as Stock Drama Group with its own identity shortly after the War.

Stock Drama Group puts on two productions a year in the Village Hall, one in May the other in November. The group consists of about 40 active members; ages range from early twenties to retirement. We provide a number of social activities throughout the year as well as involving ourselves in Festival competitions.
