Estuary Players of Topsham

Topsham and Exeter

Estuary Players can boast a long and highly varied list of productions in its 34 years of existence, but its not our track record that's our biggest asset: it's our ambition to do better theatre each time which we feel gives us that edge- the next show is always more important than the last one. We aren't avant-garde, or experimental, but we do believe that only the best writing gives us the opportunity to bring out the best acting, directing and presentation. We don't always rise to the occasion, but we always try. Why not come and join us, and. whatever your interest or skill, you will find a welcoming and supportive atmosphere. You can still check out our track record though by looking through the past shows list to see if you share our taste.
Why not come and join us....
Our members come from Topsham and Exeter mostly, and when we have a show in rehearsal we meet twice a week usually. Please contact us via website, if you have any questions.

Exeter Drama Company

Exeter

formed in 1954 and 'probably the oldest drama company in the city'. We're celebrating our 60th anniversary in September 2014 anyway! We perform 4 plays a year in March, June, September and December that are a mix of comedy, drama, period, thriller, classic etc etc and also do a minimum of 4 'one night stands'!! (Not as shady as it sounds, honest). We have an age range that goes from 10 to 84 and perform in The Shed in Alphington where we are lucky to have full houses for most of our shows. A fun group who work hard to produce high quality entertainment for the paying public. Or so we hope!

Exeter Little Theatre Company

Exeter

pantos and plays - Age Range: 12 up - Rehearsals: Wednesday
The Exeter Little Theatre Company was formed in 1954 and was based in Colleton Crescent until 1998 when we moved to our current club house in the Exeter West Quarter. Our club house is easily accessible on foot, by car and on public transport.
We meet on a Wednesday evening for social evenings, play readings, rehearsals and all things theatre. We perform the majority of our plays at the Exeter Barnfield Theatre and we have facilities at our club house allowing us to rehearse, build sets, and meet each week. This includes a wardrobe department, workshop, coffee bar and two rehearsal rooms one of which is large enough to lay out the full size Barnfield stage.
Our youth section is run by a professional drama tutor, her main employer is Exeter City Council and this gives her access to a vast amount of information not to mention her contacts, which can bring great diversity to her timetable. This gives the youth members a varied and far more complete insight into not just drama but theatre as a whole. Their 2008 production was a devised production and included video, animation, choreographed fight scenes and puppetry to compliment the three narrated short stories, which made up the show.
Our membership has a varied skillbase and this allows us to put on shows as diverse as 'Singin' In The Rain' to 'Toad of Toad Hall' and from Pantomimes to Agatha Christie thrillers. We do however need new members continually and would be pleased to hear from anyone who is interested in theatre and drama. A vast knowledge is far from essential but the desire to work as part of team is paramount. Some of the preparation is done by members on their own but during show week the team spirit is generally high.

Exeter Musical Society

Exeter

EAOS (Exeter Amateur Operatic Society) was formed in 1904 and is Exeter’s oldest amateur Society. Our first production, \’The Pirates of Penzance\’ was staged in 1905 at the Royal Public Rooms in London Inn Square and was such a success it was decided to stage another show in December that year but this time at a much grander venue, Exeter\’s much loved Theatre Royal which could seat 900 patrons. Shows continued here for one week every year until 1916 resuming again in 1920 and continued until the outbreak of the second world war in 1939.The first production after the war was \‘Merrie England\’ in 1946.Productions continued every year at The Theatre Royal until 1962 when sadly it was demolished.
For two years the Society presented shows at St. Georges Hall in Market Street until a new home was found at the Savoy Cinema just across the road from the old Theatre Royal and in 1965 opened with \‘Oklahoma!\’ one of the most popular post war shows and playing to an audience of 1900 per night.
In 1969 the Society presented \’The Gondoliers\’ as a second show at the recently opened Northcott Theatre. The Society then returned to the ABC as it was then called for a further three years until it was also demolished.
\’Pink Champagne\’ was the choice for the Society\’s opening at the Northcott Theatre in 1973 and it is here we have presented shows every year since. We also use the Barnfield Theatre to stage a concert or second show usually in November.
At this years Annual General Meeting (AGM) the idea was proposed for a name change. The majority of members voted in favour of this and from July 2009 we shall be called 'Exeter Musical Society' or E.M.S. for short. We are hoping to hold some events to relaunch ourselves, so watch this space!
We have a proud history and tradition in Exeter and are the only amateur society in Exeter to stage musicals with a full orchestra at a professional theatre the next one being \‘Anything Goes\’ 2010. We employ an outside Director, Choreographer and Musical Director and aim to present shows to the highest standard.
Of course we always need new members to keep the Society alive and thriving, whether acting, singing, dancing, backstage or just to support, if you feel like \’ having a go\’ then feel free to contact us.

Traditionally KATS perform their main musical production in March of each year, casting and rehearsals for which can start as early as September. In 2007 KATS introduced an additional summer play which has also become a popular annual event.
The only venue in our area suitable for staging full-scale musicals is currently the Village Hall at Malborough where the Malborough Amateur Dramatic Society have been staging very successful Pantomimes for many years. The transformation of Malborough Hall into a raked-seated theatre is always a spectacular success and KATS look forward to staging quality musicals and plays there for many years to come.
