We meet in The Old Church Sacriston on Monday nights from 7.30pm to 9.30pm with a break for refreshments and socialising. This year we are reviving our production of Twelfth Night and learning The Tempest from scratch. This is a very friendly club at which new members are always welcome. No experience is required. Plays are learnt between October and January and performed ad hoc throughout the next one or two years for any group that wishes to hire us, or for our own friends. Acting is done "in the round" with the audience on two or three sides in whatever space is available at the location, so always a bit of a challenge that adds interest.
