Plans for 2021
While this is a truly dramatic production, which we are sure audiences would love, we have decided our first production, when we are able to return, should be something more light-hearted. To that end, we are currently reviewing scripts for a comedic return production which will raise both smiles and spirits.
See below for images from our hilarious December 2019 production.
Upton Dramatic Society was founded in 1934 and puts on two main productions every year in March and December. We cover many genres of theatre including thrillers, farce, comedy, drama, whodunnits and have even performed some series of short plays (with cast members playing multiple parts).
We are always ready to welcome new members and experience is not necessary! As amateurs, we need a whole range of skills to make each production happen so it’s not only actors who should come along. We also need people to help with backstage management, props, costume, set design & build, lighting & sound effects and front of house duties.
They say “Charity begins at home” but for us, it begins at the theatre. Every production, we are very proud to be able to sponsor a different charity through sales of raffle tickets and programme donations. Our charities are mostly local and it is wonderful to be able to support causes from within and around our own community. Click on the Charity tab to see some of the organisations we have worked with.
