A WORD FROM THE PRODUCER...

January 2024

May I firstly take this opportunity to wish all of our loyal members and followers a very happy New Year.

As we enter this new year we are gearing up for our busiest and one of our most exciting years of live theatre. On 24th February we will be performing Reza De Wets brilliant, creepy and mysterious short play, Missing, at the Southern Counties Drama Festival at The Barn Theatre on Oxted. Following our tremendous success at the 2023 Festival with three awards for The Final Kiss we are very excited about the prospects for this years show! Tickets will go on sale at the end of January so keep an eye out! If we are as successful as last year we will be performing the show again in May as part of the All England Drama Festival so… fingers crossed!

Then in the spring we will be presenting a brand new, fast paced, whacky interpretation of Midsummer Night’s Dream, known simply as Midsummer.

I first came across this show at the 2022 Edinburgh Festival and knew immediately that we had to try to get the rights to it from the writers and producers, Tiltyard Theatre from Virginia in the United States. We were absolutely delighted to be given the rights and are so grateful to Tiltyard Theatre for their kindness and generosity in allowing us to perform this extraordinary play.

We will be putting the show on in the grounds of the Old Archbishop’s Palace in Otford in the evenings of 16th to 18th May with a matinee on Sunday 19th. The play is only just over an hour long so we are giving it a Festival feel with a bar and (hopefully) food of some sort and the actors will be mingling with the audience both before and after the show. This promises to be a truly unique experience for both our actors and audience and we couldn’t be more excited about Midsummer.  We shall update you with Box Office information as soon as we release the tickets.

And in June and July we will be bringing you our  traditional summer touring production which in 2024 will be As You Like It. We will be at our usual venue, The White Rock Inn, Underriver from 27th June until 7th July and then at St Briavels Castle in Gloucestershire on the weekend of 13th and 14th July.

Thank you all again for your continued support and we look forward to seeing you in 2024!

Steve Williams
