Can You Help?

Next Production

Dr Faustus

We need:-

A couple running away to get married stop at a farm house Bed & Breakfast where they are joined by an other couple: a vicar and his wife on their holidays.

But nothing is as it seems.....

New Production                     Dr Faustus

Our modern-day Faustus sells his soul to the devil in exchange for - what?  

The new production will combine the original Marlowe text with bluesy musical interludes and synchronised movement.

The Roses Theatre is booked and Marlowe's script has been slightly adapted, all ready for our October production of Dr Faustus.

Rehearsals have now started (from June 2nd): every Monday and Thursday (but not bank holidays) at 7.30pm-10pm, upstairs in the Tewkesbury Town Hall. The audition workshops were a success and we've got a great cast. However, there are still a few spaces for chorus members and small speaking parts, so email us or come along to a rehearsal if you're at all interested. We are also always on the look out for people to help backstage or with general preparations for a production.


Membership: £15 per year

Subs: £1 per rehearsal

Tewkesbury Societies Working Together to Win Awards!

Tewkesbury Arts & Drama Society (TADS) teamed up with Tewkesbury YMCA Movie Makers to create an entry for this year's Gloucester Inter-Club Film Competition at the end of March, and came away very pleased with the trophy for second place.

Actors Geoffrey Guy and Marianne Gaston, under the direction of Oonaugh Hughes, had prepared a performance of Geoffrey Guy's original one act play, Culinary Solution for a TADS fundraising event earlier in the year.  Having previously worked with the Tewkesbury YMCA Movie Makers as an extra in last year's entry to the film competition, I thought that they might be interested in producing a film of Geoffrey's play.
