St Mary's Community Centre, St Mary's Road, Hinckley LE10 0JN

We all started out in Hinckley, Leicestershire (Yes, that’s the county with the 2016 Premier League Champions are based). We all have a passion to perform and have appeared in One Act play festivals for many years, winning nearly every award going. After performing so well we are disappointed that only the few that attend festivals and our own loyal local audience get to see us.
Well 'If the mountain can't come to us', we had to come to you!
We decided to form a group specifically to tour venues that allow amateur theatre groups to perform and are within travelling distance of Hinckley.
Our experience from the One Act Play Festivals means we have a range of plays that can be performed on a small to a large stage with minimal set and maximum laughter.

Gasleak Theatre Company

Melton Mowbray

GASLEAK is an acronym, standing for Gilbert and Sullivan, Light Entertainment and Kids.
We set out in 1987 to have a Company that had no formal structure, no Committees, no AGMs, just a group of people who would get together on an ad hoc basis to present as wide a variety of shows as possible, participation being open to all regardless of experience. By and large, that\’s how it has continued, although the casting of one or two productions has been by invitation.
Our themes have been, firstly, G & S- at first, fairly traditional presentations, but then developing into our own versions, bringing the lib and settings up to date while not interfering with the music. Other Societies have performed those versions, with great success and enjoyment.
Secondly, Light Entertainment, in the form of Revue (usually for charity), and in the form of some of the lighter musicals, and lately by way of presentation of stage versions of TV sitcoms. Thirdly, we have made a point of encouraging youngsters to enjoy the magic of theatrical experience by participating in shows specifically featuring children, and by joining in other works where they could learn by working alongside adults.
For all enquiries about this our show, or if you wish to know more about Gasleak or you wish to join us than please get in touch

Lansdowne Drama Workshop

Aylestone

Meeting on Tuesday evening 7pm-9pm at St Andrew's Church Hall, Old Church Street, Aylestone. The over all philosophy of Lansdowne is aimed at the individual member interacting within the group, learning through the art of drama, skills of theatre which are also transferable skills of life.
We hold no auditions as through weekly workshops we learn about ourselves, and each other, which enables the work we produce to be automatically cast. We use the 'talent' that each member brings, to discover skills that they may not know they have.
Any person over the age of 16 is welcome to join Lansdowne, a cohort which is under catered for in this form of drama training. Many young people having left school find that when they reach the age of 18 opportunities are severely limited.
Weekly sessions include improvisation, role play, workshops in voice and movement, children's theatre, mime, creative drama, music hall, stage management, individual tuition and drama for self development. Opportunity will be available to attain Arts Awards.
Lansdowne was formed and funded in 1966 by the Leicester Youth Service in response to 1960 Albemarle report. Funding continued until the mid 1990s and from 1970 until 2004 under the leadership of Anne Payne. Dee Cleaver took over the leadership role upon Anne’s retirement followed by Clive Ward who attained LAMDA Gold medal Acting through Lansdowne and has since gained a Master of Arts Degree in Drama.

LAOS first started performing in Loughborough in 1895, officially registering with NODA in 1899 for our production of Agetha. This took place in the local church hall where carriages were available to take you home from 10:15pm sharp!
Over the following decades LAOS performed in a number of venues across the town and under a variety of names, Finally settling on Loughborough Amateur Operatic Society in 1939.
Our 1914 show of King Hal was particularly popular. It had a cast of 60 Adults and tickets cost between 6 Pence and 3 Shillings. That's approximately 21/2 to 15p today!
Unfortunatly, due to inflation that had to change, but one thing that hasn't changed is out tradition of "Keeping it in the Family". In King Hal there were 7 sets of sisters, mothers and daughters!

Leicester

We are the theatre society based at the University. As well as producing a variety of shows we also aim to develop the skills and abilities of our members through our other opportunities. We use our Proteus workshops as a chance for our aspiring actors, directors and writers to collaborate outside of the larger productions and to work in a smaller time frame to create short ten/fifteen minute pieces, which have in the past been taken elsewhere; for example the Leicester Comedy Festival and more recently as part of a programme of events at the Y theatre at the YMCA in Leicester.
Our Open House explores different styles and types of theatre ranging from the pantomime of Commedia Dell'Arte to the epic theatre of Bertolt Brecht and back to the naturalism of Stanislavski and gives our members the chance to develop their own interests within theatre. Our newest venture, our show choir, aka The Muses has given our members the opportunity of indulging in musical theatre as well as other genres of music and performing some good old jazz hands.
In addition to these we are continuously aiming to develop and broaden our outreach programmes, which mainly consists of taking theatre to local schools and helping them with their own productions and increasing their skills and interest in drama.
We are always looking for more opportunities to demonstrate our work as well as form relationships with other theatre groups, so please contact us and for more information check out our website!
