7 pm

After canvassing existing and potential members, we have moved the group to a Wednesday evening. We now run each Wednesday at 7pm until Pantomime rehearsals begin at the end of October.

Mrs Pat Cox

It was with regret that we heard recently of the death of Mrs Pat Cox, one of our oldest life members. Pat was a veteran of many productions, either acting, directing or even stage managing over a period of more than 20 years. She took part in all types of plays and in pantomime where she enjoyed joining in the singing. One very notable part was as Madame Arcati, the eccentric medium and clairvoyant, in Blythe Spirit by Noel Coward which will be long remembered by those who saw it!


Autumn Play

from 22 Aug 16
20 to 22 Oct 16

Life and Beth

After two great readings at "Plays for Pleasure", we had a dilemma for our Autumn Play, but we have chosen "Life and Beth" by Alan Ayckbourn.
A 2008 comedy in which a recently bereaved widow is troubled by her family's misguided support and a late husband who won't leave her alone.

From Arts Out West, North Country Theatre present "The Wish House".
New for North Country’s 20th Anniversary year a comedy of rural superstition and urban myth based on a short story by Rudyard Kipling.

from 31 Oct 16
18 to 21 Jan 17


GADS first pantomime in January 1977 was Dick Whittington, so what better way to celebrate 40 years than to do Dick Whittington once again - this time by Alan Frayn.
As an anniversary panto, we will make it something special. Auditions have been held and the panto is fully cast, but if you want to get involved off stage, please get in touch.
