41 Madeline Road, Petersfield, Hampshire GU31 4AL

The Lion and Unicorn Players was formed in 1959 by a small group of people with a passion for drama. It has always been the Players' policy to stage plays of depth and quality, comedy and even very occasionally farce as well as tragedy, but nothing so lightweight that it does not repay the time and effort put in by both the group and its audiences. Playwrights performed over the years have included Shakespeare, Shaw, Ibsen, Christopher Fry (who personally attended several of his plays), T.S. Eliot, Arthur Miller, Charles Williams, Tom Stoppard, David Hare, Robert Bolt, J.B. Priestly, Alan Bennett and Alan Ayckborun. The Group also prides itself in its set and costume design, both of which have attracted their own accolades. Lion and Unicorn Players also came first and second in the last ever Petersfield Drama Festival.

Medstead Players


Medstead

 

The Players date back to 1977 when a few people got together to put on a variety show on the then new Medstead Village Hall stage. Since then the group, who became the Medstead Players, has met to make friends, have fun and entertain. The productions vary enormously and are well received.
There are many jobs and activities undertaken by the group besides acting. We always need people to design and build sets, paint and decorate, make and find the costumes, operate the sound and lights, hunt out props, direct and prompt. There are other activities such as script writing, musical and choreography participation and stage management. A whole host of people are needed to ensure a successful production.
Over the years, we have raised thousands of pounds for various local and national charities. Members have also taken part in neighbouring societies' productions, as well as taking parts as extras for film and TV.
We meet on the first Tuesday of the month. The Players are a friendly group, always keen for new members, so if you feel you would like to get involved, then please contact the Membership Secretary, who would be delighted to tell you all about the Medstead Players and what we do.

Methodist Amateur Dramatics Company


Liphook

 

We are an amateur company based round the Liphook Methodist Church.
What do we do ? Each year under the leadership of Vanessa we put on the best pantomime in Liphook (well, we think so).
Here you can see information on all our previous productions , pictures of the stars, and photos of the last few years shows and news about forthcoming events.
The Methodist Amateur Dramatic Company started in 1991 when the Reverend Phil Thomas expressed a desire to stage a pantomime. People were dragged in from the Church, kicking and screaming, to help with everything you can think of - costumes, scenery, script writing, lights, sound, make up and props. With a budget of fifty pounds items were begged, borrowed and built, and to the delight of everyone our first production (Cinderella, of course) played to an audience of approximately one thousand people - far more that we could ever have hoped and imagined. Our productions went from strength to strength and with the support of friends, family, the Methodist Church and most of Liphook, we have managed to keep our audiences entertained ever since.
In 2001 we joined NODA, the National Operatic and Dramatic Association, and were thrilled to receive the area Accolade of Excellence for our tenth anniversary production of Cinderella - what an honour! Further honours followed with the 'Best Programme' award from NODA Southern region for Beauty and the Beast
Many of our founder members are still involved with the company, both on and off stage, still enjoying the excellent fellowship that The MAD Company provides.
We strive to produce pantomimes that are fun for all the family and in this world of television and computers, we are very happy to welcome so many children to our shows. We have ventured into other areas; plays and musical evenings, and also enjoy taking part in community events such as Bohunt Community School and Millennium Centre Open Days.
Our profits are donated to Liphook Methodist Church and every year we stage an additional Charity performance on Thursday evenings for an invited audience.
We certainly have a wonderful time producing our shows and we hope that you do too and that we can continue for many years to come.

 

Milton Musical Society


New Milton

 

We are a very friendly musical theatre company based in New Milton on the beautiful Hampshire coast and now in our 40th year of performing! Over the years members have come and gone but we still have at least one of our original members and today, we can boast, a membership ranging from 8 to 85. We keep ourselves up to date with all the news through our Newsletter.
Of course, the main focus of our activities is the performance of popular musicals and we perform one big show each year at the Regent Centre Theatre. In April 2013 we present the spectacular ‘RAGTIME’. Each November we also do a show to encourage and develop new talent.
If this sounds like the sort of fun you would like to have whether you are a performer, a director, a choreographer, have talents in make up, sewing, or just want to be involved we would love to hear from you. We also have great social events!
Of course, in order to perform the shows there is a huge amount of work that needs to go on way before we take to the stage for 'opening night'. Hopefully this web site will give you the information you are seeking about the company and what we do.

OmniArts Performing School

Facebook  Twitter  


Portsmouth

 

OmniArts Performing School is an equal opportunities and non profit group, with a totally inclusive ethos and no upper age limit.
The group is based on community values, and so the members get to decide on the shows they perform, and who plays who, so what we do varies greatly, from musicals, to just acting plays. As well as the two main shows we do a year, we also have two talent shows a year, plus a number of other events we perform at, including The Mad Hatters Charity Tea Party.
We also work with local students on films to give our members film acting experience, and put together improvisational based shows and performances.
As well as this, we encourage our students creativity - if there is a budding playright, song writer, director, artist, costume designer or anything else among our members, we will always do our best to give them somewhere to showcase that work. Our members also get involved with other parts of shows, if they are interested in them, such as the organisation, behind the scenes, set building etc.
We meet every Friday from 4.30 - 7.30 at Havelock Community Centre, which is just off Albert Road in Southsea.

One Off Productions

Facebook  


Portsmouth

 

ONE OFF PRODUCTIONS was formed to present classic, great plays that are on an Exam syllabus. This has enabled us to perform plays such as 'The Glass Menagerie', 'Hedda Gabler', 'Three Sisters', and 'Cat on a Hot Tin Roof' at The New Theatre Royal, Portsmouth without becoming bankrupt! We have no subsidy or grants and without the schools/colleges support would not exist. As we are not a membership company it enables us to invite the very best of talent in the region to act/direct with us, and is borne out by the many 'golden opinions' and awards we have received. Our productions of 'black Remembered Hills', 'Of Mice and Men', 'The Crucible', and 'An Inspector Calls', were each attended by nearly fifteen hundred students from over thirty schools as far afield as Bournemouth, Newbury, Crawley, and Brighton with several nights sold out!

Southampton

Out Of Bounds was originally founded and established as Gallows Productions in 2013 to provide unconventional and provocative theatre within Winchester, that challenged audiences whilst bettering our artist’s experience and confidence within the theatre industry.
In 2018 we reevaluated the company and changed our name to what is now Out Of Bounds Theare, keeping much of our original values and team, but changing our approach to our work. We still try to maintain our original goal of helping others by providing them with the experience and skills necessary to strive within the industry, however, we have now focused on developing our own original pieces of theatre.
We now take the ‘back-to-basics’ approach to our theatre, using simple and uncomplicated sets, costumes and stages, ensuring we focus on the audiences experience and our performances to create great theatre.
