London NW3

Ever since Graham and Sue Dowell started us off in 1976, The Hampstead Players have taken amateurism seriously. 'In love, as in sport', said Robert Graves, (he might also have said 'the theatre') 'amateur status must be strictly maintained'. We pursue high standards, and hope to do justice to the work of great dramatists and, in a broader sense, to the mission of the Church, but we also do it with enthusiasm, and a sense of fun - otherwise, for amateurs, what is the point?
Over thirty years or more, our dramatis personae, like those of The Mousetrap, have continually changed - new ideas and attitudes have made us more ambitious. We like plays of ideas which also make use of the spectacular possibilities of the church space, and our large-scale productions have included Murder in the Cathedral, Lewis Carroll's Alice, Oliver!, The Crucible, The Mystery Plays and A Tale of Two Cities.
On the other hand, our small church crypt offers a closer rapport with our audience. This is where our intimate production of Hamlet started off a regular summer Shakespeare season, which has included A Midsummer Night's Dream and Julius Caesar. It is also where the Hampstead Players Youth Theatre have done several inventive productions including Dreams of Anne Frank and Grimm Tales.
We have learned to enjoy acting in the open air, competing with the noise from traffic and café tables, and are also privileged to tour our plays, both in Britain and France. But we also belong to Hampstead, and our domestic programme, of themed poetry evenings - like Decadence and Dandyism, Place and Space, Vice and Virtue - of play-readings, technical workshops and theatre visits, is a communal, community activity.

Ealing

The Hanwell & Ealing Operatic Society is an amateur group in West London affiliated to NODA (The National Operatic and Dramatic Society) and is a registered charity.We mainly perform musicals, pantomimes, operettas, old time music hall and the occasional concert. Our members are an enthusiastic group drawn from all walks of life and all ages from high school age upwards. We aim to produce shows of a high standard and have tremendous fun at rehearsals. We also have a very varied social calendar. At present we produce 3 shows a year: a Christmas pantomime, our main show in March or April and an interim show in the autumn. We also perform concerts on request. This keeps us busy from early September until the end of July. Principals for all shows are selected by audition from the members. The Society is run by a committee of 10 which is elected each year at the AGM.
We are always on the lookout for new talent. We usually suggest you come along and join in for a week or two so that you can see us in action before auditioning. Auditioning is not as daunting as it sounds but is necessary to maintain the high standard our audiences have come to expect from us.
Members' auditions involve singing a song of your own choice to the audition panel (who are very friendly!) Simple dance steps will also be set at the time of the audition. You may also be asked to sing a scale or two (for range). We also accept members as dancers.
Non acting/singing members are also very welcome; we are always in need of extra people to help back stage and front of house.
If on the other hand you just enjoy our performances and would like know us better and support the Society why not become a Friend of the Society. You would be welcome to all our social events and would receive our regular news sheet with details of the latest news of members, shows and activities.

Impact Box Office:- TicketSource or (020 8421 6848)
Impact is a hugely creative and contemporary theatre company, founded by actress Amanda Noar and now in its 12th year. From humble beginnings with just a handful of locals, Impact has now evolved into a thriving and highly successful theatre company. Cast members are from all over North London, from various cultural backgrounds and of all age groups.
The company based in Finchley, North London is essentially made up of amateurs, drama students and "resting pro's". Impact prides itself on being a community orientated group and never turning anyone away, providing they are enthusiastic and willing to have a go.
Each year Impact puts together a number of activities, theatrical workshops, reviews, play readings and various fundraisers for both adults and children. The year always culminates in a major musical show. Not only well known favourites such as "Annie" and "Little Shop of Horrors" but also the lesser known avant-garde musical that gives audiences a taste of something unusual.
Impact now has a dedicated group of performers numbering between 40-60 and also a very loyal following in the community, that has resulted in sell out performances for all our shows.
