Mawdesley

Mawdesley Amateur Dramatics Society (MADS) is a well established drama group based at Mawdesley Village Hall in the picturesque village of Mawdesley in Lancashire. The society was created in the early 1970s by members of the local WI. In 1974 after the official opening of the new Mawdesley Village Hall local residents were asked to produce a pantomime. This production of Cinderella was so successful that members of the cast decided to form a drama society and Mawdesley Amateur Dramatics Society was born.
Today we usually produce three productions a year: a Play, a Variety Show or Murder Mystery and a Pantomime. MADS meets on a Wednesday evening at the Village Hall at 7.45pm. All newcomers are most welcome – the annual subscription is small and all interests are catered for – acting, stage, costume, painting, props etc.
A warm welcome is extended to all!
Mawdesley Amateur Dramatics Society is NODA affiliated

Morecambe Amateur Operatic and Dramatic Society

8 Pemberton Drive, Morecambe, Lancashire LA4 6SL

Morecambe Amateur Operatic and Dramatic Society, so named in 1904 after the group's first performances as St Barnabas Players in 1903, quickly became known as Morecambe Amateurs to local audiences. Originally performing plays and comic operas, the increasing popularity of musicals resulted in MAODS producing their first musical in 1916. From 1920 onwards Vincent Mayor produced and acted in the shows for many years. Vincent was the uncle of the current society President, Norman Mayor. In the early years MAODS performed in The Royalty Theatre then moved to The Winter Gardens in the late 1940s. We now perform annually at The Lancaster Grand Theatre. Morecambe Amateurs are affiliated to the National and Operatic Dramatic Association.

Pendle Hippodrome Theatre Company

Colne

Pendle Hippodrome Theatre Company! An exciting new start for the owner groups of the prestigious Pendle Hippodrome Theatre.
Resulting from months of serious discussion between the members and general committees of Colne Operatic Society and St. John's Great Marsden Operatic & Dramatic Society, the two groups made the decision to disband with a view to combining resources and forming a new organisation to meet the challenges of the 21 st century.
A decision not made lightly considering the long established traditions of both groups and the strong commitment to their members, as you can see from our archive pages, the two groups have served the area collectively for in excess of 140 years.
The possibility of a closer relationship between the two groups has been mooted for some considerable time and over recent years for many and varied reasons the case for amalgamation has become much stronger resulting in each group calling an extra ordinary general meeting with a single item on the agenda, the dissolve of the group.
With the decisions made and the new organisation formed, we look forward to a strong, challenging and exciting future, with an organisation focused on providing the members of both the adult group and the youth group greater opportunities to explore and present all aspects of the performing arts.
Pendle Hippodrome Theatre Company in it's infancy will face many challenges but is fortunate that within it's membership there is a wealth of expertise on which to draw, hopefully ensuring a long and happy future for all members.
It would be folly to assume that everything will now just fall into place and that the Theatre Company will go from strength to strength engineered by some strange and benevolent force. We can be what we want to be and we can achieve what we want to achieve but only by serious commitment and hard work. We must not fall into the comfortable state of thinking that it is now up to someone else, we must not expect to hold out our hands and receive everything we want, we must indeed hold out our hands but to receive the tools to enable us to create the future that we want for our new organisation.

We have performed some 94 plays (including theatre suppers and theatre dinners), the actors and plays winning many prestigious awards along the way. The majority of these performances were held at our previous venue Chorley Old Road United Reform Church, but sadly, in 2003, the church and its hall were demolished and since that time, we have been performing wherever we can hire premises.
This, as can be appreciated, eats into our funds before we even consider which plays to perform! Seeking a permanent venue is far from easy, as there are many aspects to consider – some obvious, some less so - but we continue to be hopeful of finding something, somewhere, and any suggestions regarding this would be much appreciated.
Our plays cover the full spectrum of types from farces to historical dramas. Phoenix are open to all ages and would always welcome new members either on stage or helping behind the scenes.
We are based in Bolton, Lancashire in the glorious Northwest.
If you have any queries, then please do not hesitate to contact us via our website or social media.

Preston Gilbert and Sullivan Society

Preston

The society was formed in 1954, when Mr. Eric Hindle and a Mrs. Luveasa, both teachers at Trinity School Preston, started a Gilbert & Sullivan Group within the school.
With the opening of the Guild Hall complex in 1972/73, the group now called 'The Gilbert & Sullivan Society' moved their productions to the Charter Theater and also to the Lowther Pavilion at Lytham, St Annes. In 1999 the company moved again this time to the more intimate setting of 'The Preston Playhouse' was they have performed ever since, as well as continuing at the 'Lowther'.
The company itself continues to perform to award winning standards with a new generation of singers, all blessed with the same love of Gilbert and Sullivan that Eric Hindle had all those years ago.
The Society endeavours to run a programme of social events alongside the schedule of rehearsals. Preston G&S Society is one of the select set of performing companies that have made the Preston Playhouse a home and there are plenty of opportunities to get involved with the working of the Playhouse and developing it as a performing venue for Preston G&S and the other companies using the theatre.
