Tewkesbury Amateur Dramatic Society

Facebook  Twitter  


TADS was formed over 30 years ago as Tewkesbury Amateur Dramatic Society with the aim of providing drama for the enjoyment of it members and the community at large, and to widen the society members' knowledge of all aspects of drama. The Society has seen a number of changes over the years, but the aims of the Society remain the same to this day.
In May 2008 the name of the society was changed to Tewkesbury Arts & Drama Society.
TADS is always pleased to welcome new members to add to the ranks. Both young and old, experienced or novice are welcome to come along and meet the Society's members at any of our rehearsals or meetings. In addition to the actors and actresses needed for our productions, we always have many posts to fill for the backstage crew. These posts include: Marketting, Stage Management, Rehearsal Prompt, Properties, Lighting & Sound, Costumes, Set design & construction, Front of House, etc.
TADS does not set any qualifications or requirements for membership: if you want to join us that is qualification enough. However membership does not confer any right to be in a production; auditions are held for members of the cast of our productions.
TADS is run by all of its members; there is no committee or cabal running it. All decisions are made at the monthly meetings. Become a member and turn up at the meeting and you have as much say as the whizzened old-timer in the corner.
TADS perform all types of productions, from comedies and musicals to drama and the classics, but with an emphasis on drama. The society performs at the local One Act play festivals, usually presenting plays written by our members.
TADS members who are involved with a production for the first time are often surprised at the amount of fun we have producing plays to the high standards we set ourselves. Whether it is a small production with just our vastly experienced trained actors, a community performance with children and first time actors (or the usual something in between these extremes) we always aim for the highest standard of production. It should also be noted that involvement in our productions is a lot of hard work at times, both during rehearsals and at home.
TADS rehearsals are usually held twice a week.
TADS also organise other events such as visits to other companies' productions, or just trips to the local chippy.....

The Actonians Drama Group

The Actonians are based in Iron Acton, South Gloucestershire. We produce two shows a year in the Iron Acton Parish Hall.

The Cotswold Savoyards



The Cotswold Savoyards was formed in 1962 to produce the works of Gilbert and Sullivan. We have presented staged versions of all 13 surviving operas, a reconstruction of Thespis, and other operettas by Sullivan, Lehar, Offenbach and Strauss. Over the past few years we have widened our repertoire to include shows such as Salad Days, Sweeney Todd, Candide, Into the Woods, and Scrooge, the Musical. Approximately half our shows are now Gilbert and Sullivan, and half from other composers.
We stage two productions per year, each running for a week; one at Cheltenham's amateur theatre, The Playhouse, which seats just over 200 people, the other at the town's professional theatre, The Everyman, which seats over 600.
We are always willing to consider requests from other organisations to stage concerts on behalf of charity. We can produce a short cabaret by a small group of singers or a whole evening's entertainment with full chorus. Concerts in the past have included a staged and costumed performance of Trial by Jury in Gloucester Crown Court and a Sullivan Centenary Concert at Cheltenham Town Hall.
The society is always keen to attract new members, whether as singers or as helpers in some capacity. We are always pleased to see new faces on (and off) stage. In addition to our regular productions, we organise a variety of social events and you would be made most welcome.
The Society is keen to attract new members whether as singers or helpers in some capacity. We are always very pleased to see new faces on stage - particularly young ones. The main qualifications are a love of Gilbert and Sullivan and some time to spare.
We were delighted to have five new singing members for the last show, the youngest of whom was sixteen.
Rehearsals for shows and concerts typically take place on Tuesdays and Thursdays, with additional ones sometimes scheduled for principals on Wednesdays. Rehearsals take place at Charlton Kings Infants School hall (see directions). Anyone who's interested is also most welcome to join us in the pub afterwards!
There are two shows a year, alternately at the Everyman and Playhouse Theatres, each running for a full week, plus a number of concerts. Some members participate in everything that's going, and others choose a smaller number of shows and/or concerts to join in.

Originally the St Barnabas Players, a church based group founded in 1956, the Crown Players took their present name in 1993. From their origins in playing both sacred and secular drama, the Players have now moved to include more musical elements in their productions.
In addition to comedies and thrillers, the society regularly mounts a pantomime (most recent ones being written by a member). With ventures into music hall and old tyme variety, the Crown Players now have a thriving and popular concert party which entertains those unable to get out to the theatre.
Members of the society were prominent amongst those establishing and refurbishing The Kings Theatre in 1987 and they have a strong representation on its management committee.
As with all groups, new members are always welcome, whatever their level of expertise or experience. With three shows a year at the Theatre and other regular ventures, there are plenty of opportunities to get involved.
The Crown Players perforn 3 productions a year with a pantomime every other year written by members of the Crown Players. We welcome everyone from 16 - 90+, either sex and all levels of experience.
For all enquiries, whether wanting to see our shows or being part of the team - ...either on or off stage!
We welcome everyone from the age of 16 + to join us regardless of experience or ability.

The Hardwicke Players

The Hardwicke Players

Facebook  Twitter  Instagram  


The Hardwicke Players were formed in November 2004 by friends Claire Chapman, Steve Mills, Richard Edwards, Chris Sellars and Chris Paterson.

‘For the community, by the community’.

The group’s aim is two-fold: to perform original productions for the local community and at the same time, raise money for Gloucestershire charities.

The Hardwicke Players performed for the very first time at Quedgeley Village Hall in January 2006 when they took to the stage with their New Year pantomime, The Merchants of Gloucester, for which the group raised £900 for the Gloucester & District Branch of the Alzheimer’s Society.

We have since gone from strength to strength, and to date, have raised over £3,000 for local charities. We now perform twice a year, an annual January pantomime and a summer comedy show and the group have been delighted to find a new home at the Kings Theatre in Gloucester.

The Hardwicke Players are always looking to welcome new members to the group in any capacity, whether it is acting, stage design, prop and costume making or backstage roles. If you would like further information, please do not hesitate to contact us info@hardwicke-players.co.uk

The Riverside Players


The Riverside Players are a unique amateur theatre company. It was formed in 1951 by former students of the Central School of Speech and Drama in order to take a play touring in the summer holidays. The idea became an annual fixture, incorporating the friends and families of those originally involved, and expanding to the point at which moving about the country became impracticable.
The “tour”, as it is still known, has now become a fortnight’s stay in one place – over the years: Culham, Stamford, Bognor, Bloxham, Pangbourne, Chipping Norton and Windsor. We have also taken productions to Copenhagen. This year we are performing in the lovely grounds of Rendcomb College.
