Grayshott Stagers

Grayshott

The Amateur Dramatic scene in Grayshott goes back to before the 1914/18 war. Records exist of a group called The Grayshott Dramatic Society that staged productions in the Village Hall as early as 1912. During the second World War, however, proceedings lay more or less dormant, but afterwards, for the rest of the 40's, interest was revived mainly by the Women’s Institute who produced a series of one act plays, helped out as occasion demanded by a number of gentlemen. It was to be these enthusiasts who provided the seed corn for the yet unborn Society.
Following the Pageant, a meeting was held at the home of Brenda and Ken Baldock to discuss the possibility of putting on regular productions. A Committee was formed and the play JOHN MARLOW'S PROFESSION chosen and put on, under the banner of THE GRAYSHOTT STAGERS, in the February of 1951. This first production was staged in curtains with very basic furniture and properties. Financial backing of £30 was provided by one of the members. THE GRAYSHOTT STAGERS had been born.
The name "Stagers" was derived from Ken Baldock’s early days in Canterbury where the "Old Stagers", reputed to be the oldest amateur society in England, performed plays every Canterbury Cricket Week.

We use are local Village Hall for all performances, with a starting time of 8.00pm.

Our productions since that time now exceed seventy with an eclectic mix including well known musicals, drama, comedy, cabaret and dance reviews, own composition dramas and musicals.
Dynamo is still independent and self funding, and is dependent on a dedicated group of adults who give up huge amounts of precious leisure time to support the running of Dynamo, and the productions.

Headley Theatre Club

Headley

The Club was founded in 1952, building on the success of a pageant held to celebrate the Festival of Britain the previous year. It was felt that an organisation should be formed in the Village to encourage such enthusiasm and talent on a more permanent basis. And so it has remained.
As an active village drama group, we thrive only so long as we continue to attract both members and audiences.
Our policy is to welcome all comers, and put them to work as soon as possible. Whatever your talent, we can probably use it.

Southsea

Founded in 1992, HumDrum consists of people from the Portsmouth region who were seeking an innovative, experimental theatre company in the local area. Although many existing groups would have satisfied some member's requirements, none can satisfy all. Though this can never be an integral part of the company's policy, it has helped pave the way towards more reachable goals.
HumDrum has three main aims: to bring under-performed works into the area; to present familiar works in a new or unusual manner; and to develop the artistic skills of its members.
