8 May

The VE day celebrations in Gosforth have been postponed, but GADS will still be there to support the event when it is re-scheduled.
We have already prepared a short (~15 minute) period drama based on the tales and memories of local residents.


The play is about the reminiscences of an old lady talking about her experiences during WW2. Although fictitious, it is based on the recollections of several of our residents in Gosforth. We need one cast member to play the lady's son, daughter, grandson or granddaughter - so male or female between 25 and 70 ish. This is a fairly small but important part with not many lines. We will rehearse in April whenever the cast are available, so no set dates or times. If you are interested, please contact Karen Polmear asap by email or phone (28392).


Thu 4 to
Sat 6 June

We are very sorry to announce that our Spring Play has been cancelled due to Coronavirus.

But it's a good little play, so maybe we will be able to perform it as our Autumn Play. We certainly hope so.


24 July


The Ashton Group's Theatre Factory Apprentices will be returning to Gosforth for their annual visit with a new play 'After Rain' or 'The Musician, the Bestie, the Mum and his Lover (and how they all got tangled up)'.


3 August

This has not been cancelled yet, but who knows?
Our popular Summer Youth Workshop returns for yet another year.
A full week of fun learning about all aspects of staging a show,
followed by a performance on the Saturday evening.


July / August

Our Autumn Play runs from Thu 15 to Sat 17 October. Rehearsals begin on Tuesday 25 August and the Auditions will be held in July / August. Please get in touch if you want to be involved.
Watch our Facebook page for more information.


3 November

We surely can't be preparing for pantomime again? Oh yes we can!
Rehearsals begin on 3 November for shows in late January 2021.
Watch out for the audition dates if you want to get involved.


GADS would like to thank these organisations for helping to fund our new stage lights and controls
