We are an amateur musical theatre society performing in the Staines area.

Our primary aim is to enjoy social interaction, and provide quality entertainment to the local public.

Our main production is held in March each year and is held at Magna Carta School.

Auditions for the main show are ‘closed’ initially – being open to paid up members only. If a principal role is still not cast, then auditions are ‘open’ and we invite individuals to audition and advertise locally.
There are usually five performances from Wednesday to Saturday including a Matinee on the Saturday. There are also technical and dress rehearsals on the Monday and Tuesday. The Sunday before is used to set up and there is also a band call in the afternoon where the orchestra see the music for the first time. Sometimes there will be a technical rehearsal on the Sunday evening as well. A very busy week!

Our Summer and Christmas Shows are compilation shows, held in July at Magna Carta Scool or Riverside Arts Centre, Sunbury (three performances Friday and Saturday evenings and a Saturday Matinee) and early in December, on a Sunday (afternoon and evening performance.)
