Neston

We are a group of people aged between 18 and 80 who meet every Thursday at7.45pm at Neston Memorial Hall. The group has been going since 1977 and we still have one founder member involved. We aim to put on two productions a year ranging from comedy to classics, you name it, we’ll have a go! However, we are not much into opera and musicals as we do not currently have enough bodies to do that sort of thing, and perhaps not the talent either!. We have patrons who support us and receive free tickets to performances and we enjoy other social activities during the year to which our patrons are invited. We are always looking for new faces to put on stage, some of us original members are getting a bit old to pass for ‘20’ besides which it is always a good thing to get new faces up there and stop our audiences becoming bored with the ‘same old’! Of course you don’t need to act to become involved. We are always on the lookout for talent to undertake back stage jobs too and we are trying to put together a ‘friends’ list – people who are willing to help us during the production week but don’t want to get involved full time, eg serving teas, selling programmes etc. So whichever way you choose to get involved you can always be assured of a warm welcome. We would love to hear from you.

Local 4 - 8 year old children are going Under the Sea.

The only drama, dance and singing workshops for 4-8 year olds to focus on helping develop children’s confidence, co-ordination, communication and concentration skills. Perform is not a stage school but will help give your child amazing social skills and the best fun of their week.
This April to July, Perform children will be diving down to a magical world full of watery adventures. They’ll meet Dolly Dolphin, Septamus the Octopus and Smelly-Fish-Jelly-Fish. Learn to dance The Fishy Funk and by the end of term rescue the Lost Pearl from the scary Deep Sea Creature.
And best of all, the children won't notice how much they are improving their social skills along the way.
Any interested 4-8 year old can try out the classes by attending a Free Trial Session.

Pewsey

Founded in 2006, Pewsey MVC sing for the fun of it with the aim of bringing our audiences the same pleasure. By doing so successfully we have been instrumental in raising thousands of pounds for charities such as Comic Relief, Macmillan Nurses, Brighter Futures, The Fire Fighters' Charity, Children with Cancer, Julia's House, Devizes PHAB, Pewsey Heritage Centre and, of course, via Pewsey Carnival, local hospices and the Wiltshire Air Ambulance
Choir membership is centred on Pewsey with voices from as far afield as Burbage, Enford and the Collingbournes and has (so far) included teenagers, octogenarians and all in between. Numbers now exceed the thirty mark but the invitation is always open for new voices who enjoy singing to join up. Rehearsals are on Mondays between 7:00pm and 9:00pm at St.John's Church. When the church isn't available or we fancy a less formal/social session we can be found in The Crown Inn, Wilcot Road; "Pop-Up Performances" may also be held by special arrangement at various locations around the Vale where we think potential new recruits might be found!

If you would like to book tickets for our next performance please email bookings@phoenix-players.com
There are some 40 members of the Players covering a wide age range. Some are keen actors and others prefer to be out of the spotlight covering the many back stage tasks that are so necessary to have a successful production. The Players all share the same love of the theatre and their aim is to provide quality entertainment for their loyal patrons whilst being involved in the activities they so much enjoy. Being a members of the Players is like being part of an extended family and there have been a few occasions where members who have left the area have actually moved back simply because they missed being part of the company.
The Players present three productions each season ranging from comedy to classics and also enjoy a number of social activities during the year.
Would-be members can be assured of a warm welcome, so if you have an interest in the theatre, whether this be in front of or behind the footlights, we would love to hear from you.

Shakespeare Live

Shakespeare Live

Seend

Founded in 1989 by a group of experienced amateur actors, Shakespeare Live is a theatre company which raises funds for charity by producing open air performances of Shakespeare plays. Since its foundation the company has raised over £50,000 for charitable causes. Open auditions are held in January for the summer production, performed outdoors in early July, to audiences in excess of 2,000 people. A further small touring production takes place in September/October.
Quality acting, sumptuous costumes, a grand spectacle supported by superb technical and special effects, and as the evening draws on the unique magic that grows while the darkness gathers around the pool of light in which the actors weave their spell – these are the hallmarks by which our many regular audience members have come to know Shakespeare Live, and the unexpected delights that so often win high praise from newcomers.
All this is enjoyed by our audiences from the weatherproof comfort of tiered seating in a covered stand. While the actors may occasionally find themselves battling the elements, the spectators stay dry – although a warm wrap is always to be recommended! Creature comforts are well provided for during your visit, with indoor bars, picnic spaces and toilets as well as outdoor stalls selling food, drink and merchandise – and of course those splendid lawns to enjoy your picnic on a balmy summer evening. Come on our Gala Night and you will be entertained by musicians and dancers while you soak up the atmosphere before the show. In past years we have performed at Hazelbury Manor, Lackham House and from summer 2017 forwards at Cleeve House in Seend.
You may rest assured also that once the costs of staging and production have been covered any surplus from the price you pay for your ticket will go to charitable causes. In our 28 years to date we are pleased and proud to have been able to donate over £50,000 to a wide range of charities, the majority of them with local connections. We aim to contribute to the community life of North Wiltshire: to that end we have formed, and will continue to develop, artistic and educational links with a variety of local schools and youth groups, links which are central to our status, from early 2014, as a registered charity. We love to involve children and young people in our productions.
