Forest Hill, SE London

Based in Forest Hill, south-east London, this friendly Amateur Dramatic Society, formed in 1934, presents two full-length productions every year. Now located in the new St George's Church, Vancouver Road, Forest Hill, south-east London, technology has improved since those early days. The improvised footlights, made from old biscuit tins, have long-since been replaced with modern lighting equipment, and the scenery can be relied upon to stand firm! We welcome Applications for membership from anyone who would like to "tread the boards" or get involved in other tasks, such as set design, scenery construction, lighting, sound, props, prompting, Box Office, costumes, making tea, sweeping the stage and all the other jobs that have to be done by a small, but dedicated drama group. We are especially interested in directors and those interested in directing. The group meets twice a week for rehearsals as well as holding Quiz Evenings and other social events. See diary for important dates. We try to maintain a broad age profile. Whilst many are in their twenties, thirties and forties, our present membership includes three who have each celebrated 50 years with the Players!

While traveling on internet, sometimes I discover amateur theater groups unknown to me.
They are more than 400 troupes who have performed nearly 2,000 sessions of my texts throughout France, but also in Belgium, Switzerland, Canada and even China (29 countries all around the world) ...
From now on, using Google translate, I decided to translate some of my texts from French to English which you will find on my site...
Come see me and discover on my new website nearly 70 plays for adults, teenagers, children. From 3 minutes to more than 2 hours for all distributions but always ALL AUDIENCE.
The last one, a sketch to be performed before the principal piece "Love at first sight by text messages".

Here is an example of one of my plays which is doing very well in French-speaking countries (nearly 700 screenings): L'auberge du Caramel (Aubergecaramelclefbreteil35 - YouTube)
I wish you to have a great theater season ahead.

Latest Review

The Toymaker by Dave Carey

Reviewed by: Elaine Chapman @ElaineC_reviews

Review date: 30th Nov 2023

With a cast of around 800, it's no surprise that this year's Christmas production of The Toymaker at the Chickenshed has been split into four casts performing on separate nights. Today's preview cast was the "yellow" group who have set the bar high for the other three casts.

Based on the novel The Adventures of Pinocchio by Italian writer Carlo Collodi. The Toymaker is bringing up his daughter Katie alone after his wife passed away. Working as a cleaner in a technical factory he steals a chip found on the floor to create a lifelike "toy" to become Katie's friend/sibling. PIN:0cch10 emerges and chaos begins!

The child catcher from Chitty Chitty Bang Bang appears to have been incorporated into the storyline although it is now a couple with a Fagin-style entourage working alongside them to sell the bogus dream of "leisure Island" to their latest captives.

The cast of two hundred only appears together towards the end. The full stage allows the audience to appreciate the work that takes place by the production team led by Andrew Caddies and fantastic choreographer Bethany Hamlin. Watching almost 200 cast members move together in sync was a moving experience.

Each of the main characters has their own assigned sign language interpreter working onstage with them, clearly visible to the entire auditorium. Every effort is made to ensure the audience is considered to make sure they are all-inclusive too.

As an inclusive Theatre Company whose ethos is to give every person who auditions a role in their plays, it's no wonder this year's production sees the extensive cast split into four groups. Such an incredible Theatre.

TIME: 20:00 - 22:00
PERFORMANCES: 19 - 23 MAR 2024

In 1941, two physicists, Niels Bohr and Werner Heisenberg, met in Copenhagen. The details of this meeting remain a mystery but its ramifications reverberate throughout the world today. This multi-award-winning play by Michael Frayne (Noises Off) requires three talented performers all with substantial dialogue. On stage for the duration of the play, actors create scenes that blend seamlessly between a representation of an afterlife and recreating key moments in their lives. The script is poetic, taking full advantage of the theatrical to explore this intriguing and significant moment in history. Understanding of nuclear physics not required. Willingness to learn lots of lines and deliver an explosive performance essential.

CHARACTERS: BOHR: late fifties, male, physicist, paternal, calm with an occasional rage
