The Lakes Players has been entertaining the people of the South Lakes for the past 17 years. Until a few years ago the group was known as The Windermere and Bowness Amateur Operatic and Dramatic Society! Now under it’s much shorter title the society puts on a pantomime each year at The Lakes School Windermere to packed houses.
The group is going from strength to strength, they hold an annual ball to raise money and have just launched a website and are planning on hiring out costumes including a horse very soon.
Each year the society invites new members to join their ranks and audition for their latest panto. Or alternatively become part of the very professional stage crew, front of house staff or a range of committee jobs. Everyone is welcome.
We are very privileged to have Purple Sheep lighting and S.A.P audio as part of the society as well as The Maria Frances school of Dance.

The Little Theatre Guild of Great Britain

Facebook  

Carlisle

The Little Theatre Guild, now known as the LTG, has been in existence since 1946 to represent the views of Amateur theatres across the UK. Our membership extends throughout the UK, plus some overseas locations. In particular membership of the LTG is open only to those amateur theatres that own or lease the theatre premises upon which productions are mounted.
We currently have in excess of 103 member theatres right across the United Kingdom, ranging from 64 seat auditorium up to 450 seat auditorium. This includes theatres that present only four plays per year to those that present a continuous repertoire. In the last year LTG theatres presented over 850 productions to an audience in excess of 630,000 patrons.
In a world of ever increasing legislation relating to such areas as Health and Safety, Premises licensing, changes to the VAT regime, Children in Performance regulations plus the latest vetting and barring scheme, we are finding that our members value the \‘Grey Papers' that we produce to explain the law and regulatory requirements.
With our regular national and regional conferences there is the opportunity to network and share experiences, both good and bad, to learn from others experiences that will help theatres to avoid the pitfalls that others have experienced.
As a recognised national body, we are consulted by both the Department for Culture Media and Sports (DCMS) and the Department for Children, Schools and Families (DCSF) on matters that affect the amateur theatre sector and our members. We have recently been successful in getting Ministers to accept that the regulatory burdens placed upon the amateur sector are deterring more and more theatres from using children in productions. We therefore hope that the regulations relating to children in performance will be amended, whilst recognising the need to protect children in our theatre members' care.

Ulvertson

We are an 'am-dram' company based in Ulverston, Cumbria. The society started way back in 1936, making us one of the longest-running drama groups in the area.
We generally only put on plays, rather than musicals and usually work towards two productions a year, shown at Ulverston's Coronation Hall. In addition, we also take part in a number of one-act festivals with occasional touring productions as well.
