Wow! What a first night! The younger members of the group came up trumps. Our reviewer wrote, "…it was something a little different and it really worked!" The adults did quite well also! And many thanks to last night's audience, who cheered, booed and sang with great gusto. You had to be there to fully appreciate the atmosphere… and you can! A few tickets are still available at

We are lucky enough to have our own drama studio...


It all began in 1938 when a Malmesbury boy had the idea of setting up a dramatic society...

We perform Revues, Pantos and Plays.
