With the return of the original Broadway blockbuster, Miss Saigon, Birmingham Hippodrome are hosting a FREE Heritage Talk all about The Birth of the Mega Musical.

Our Hippodrome Heritage volunteers will take audiences on a magical 'musical' tour through the archives, re-tracing the genre's evolution. You'll also be able to look through old programmes and our touch table.

Cartwright Drama Studio coming to Bramhall

Hello there,

I thought this may be of interest to the wonderful Amateur Dramatics world if anyone wishes to further their experience and skills.

Under the direction of Jim Cartwright,I shall be teaching TV acting, audition technique and more importantly, having fun and using our imaginations to become better actors or to use the new found skills in every day life.
Classes for both adults and children in Bramhall every Thursday from September.

Please find below Jim's quote regarding these classes which is soon to go on the I Love Bramhall Website:

''We are thrilled to be bringing The Cartwright Drama Studio to Bramhall and particularly excited that the classes will be run by Neil Rowland, who has worked successfully in all areas of the acting profession. He also brings to the sessions the skills of a natural and imaginative communicator and an experienced teacher.
The Cartwright Drama studio invites the people of Bramhall to come and experience our ground breaking approach to drama training. People of all levels and ages are welcome from absolute beginners, to the creatively curious to professionals and all ages are served from children to OAPS. Why not give it a go? The least that can happen is you will have a good laugh the best is that you will find your way to working in the acting profession.'

Jim xx

Harefield Amateur Dramatic Society (HADS)




HADS is the local amateur dramatic society for the village of Harefield, between Rickmansworth and Uxbridge, in West London. We have been active since 1951 and currently produce 2 main plays a year plus a summer production, Christmas party and various other side-ventures.
We have members from Harefield itself, plus a wide surrounding area and of all ages, who are a mixture of frontstagers and backstagers. We have a reputation for quality performances, sets and effects and have garnered several awards.
We're not stuffy or dah-lings and recognise that people give up an enormous amount of their free time and dedication to producing performances and we try to make it fun and inviting. Of course, as with any drama group, there can be more drama off-stage than on, but that's half the fun ...
We are members of NODA (National Operatic and Dramatic Association) and supported by the HAA (Hillingdon Arts Association).
We meet at St Mary's Church Hall, High Street, Harefield, UB9 6BX, every Tuesday evening at 8pm. Come and join us to see what we're up to.
Contact or 01895 253346.

My panto is opening up new ground. It is based around Halloween !!!.

I have written it to include a lot of songs and audience participation.

It is also deliberately short, just over one hour in length.

This is so that groups can easily perform two show in one evening.

I always thought that there should be more for children to do at Halloween, considering the amount of effort that they and their parents put into dressing them up and the fact that in general, fireworks terrify the majority of small children.

Please contact me to discuss.

I am a musical theatre performer, but have also for the last 13 years multi-camera filmed amateur and professional productions, creating full-feature DVDs for the members of the group.

I do not charge to film per se. I film for free, at my own expense, and earn by selling the resulting DVDs (strictly only to members of the company of course).

I've filmed over 100 shows.

Copperdollar Studios are two unique studios situated in the heart of Brighton’s Kemptown on the East Sussex coast. They are available to be hired by the creative community of Brighton and beyond. They are popular with photographers and videographers because of their rustic walls, wooden floors and variation of textured aesthetics that create a rich choice for backdrops. Theatre companies and musicians who need a quiet yet rich shabby chic atmospheric for music videos and band shoots make use of the space, too. They are available from 8am to 10pm, 7 days a week.
Although we can't accept regular small slot bookings, both of the studios can be block booked or rented as a one off which makes them perfect for summer programmes, workshops and training.

Support Your Local Amateur Theatre Group

Author: Norma Phillips
Secretary of
Teesside Musical Theatre Company


We hope that Teesside Musical Theatre Company’s (TMTC) reputation will encourage audiences to buy tickets for the upcoming 2017 production of “Spamalot” being performed at Middlesbrough Theatre on 15-20 May 2017. “Spamalot” was aptly described by the Newcastle Evening Chronicle as “a pantomime for all seasons”, and our production promises to be spectacular and hilarious, appealing to everyone who wants to leave the theatre feeling thoroughly entertained. The only pain you will experience from this encounter with a “python” is the ache in your ribs from so much laughter.

TMTC were excited to secure the rights to “Spamalot” in 2014 to be the first North East Amateur Company to perform the show. However, due to circumstances beyond our control, tickets sales are likely to be adversely affected by the fact that many people may have already seen the show recently in the local area.

True to the “Spamalot” ethos, we are determined to “Always Look on the Bright Side of Life”, and rehearsals are progressing well. Our Committee and Members endeavour to be supportive of each other and work together to ensure the survival of local amateur theatre. Several members of Teesside Musical Theatre Youth Company are also part of the cast, giving them valuable experience in a full scale production and helping to secure the future of TMTC.

For “Spamalot” TMTC also have a Youtube page with amusing videos providing a taster of the production and showing how much fun the cast is having at rehearsals. Visit the page at and subscribe to receive news of future videos.

We need the support of local audiences to come and join in the fun at Middlesbrough Theatre from 15-20 May 2017 by ordering tickets from our ticket secretaries, Jacquie Kelly (tel: 07712 485211) and Sue Bargewell (tel: 07806 786327) or from the Box Office on 01642 815181. Tickets cost £15 for adults and £10 for Under 14s.
