Events for December!


Social Play Reading



Christmas Eve was a time for ghostly story telling, and this continued into Victorian times.


Join us - if you dare. The stories we've lovingly selected are designed to be read by many voices. Come along and have a go, or sit back and listen.


Tuesday 10th December from 8pm at Unitarian Chapel, High Street, Billingshurst, RH14 9QS.


Mince pies and mulled wine will be served to comfort you...

Auditions for February Production!


If you didn't get a chance to see our entry of "Snowed Under" by Anne-Marie Latter at the West Chiltington Drama Festival this summer, it will be reprised in February with the same cast.

In addition, Caro will be directing another one act play, "Gosforth's Fete" by Alan Ayckbourn and we will be holding auditions for this play.

Forming part of Alan Ayckbourn's "Confusions", this hilarious play can be performed without the other four in the series. It is set at a village fete, and things aren't running quite as smoothly as they should. A temperamental PA system, an incontinent tea urn, and a thunder storm give the five characters much more than they bargained for when agreeing to run the fete.

The cast and rough playing ages:

Milly - 20s -30s
Stewart - 30s/40s (younger than Gosforth - he is Milly's fiance)
Gosforth - 30s/40s +
Vicar - 40s/50s +
Mrs Pearce - 40s +

A read through and informal auditions for "Gosforth's Fete" will take place at
The Women's Hall on Monday 16th December at 8pm.

Just turn up, or contact us for more information.
