Another successful production!

We were delighted to raise £510 for local charity, Kidsbank Chester, at our March production of Mr Wonderful.

Over the summer, we will be reading plays for the next season and meeting socially.  Watch this site for details of play reading dates and our AGM.  Everyone is welcome to come along to any of our meetings to see who we are and find out about what we do. We are always looking for new members and there are lots of ways to get involved including: lights, sound, backstage, directing, front of house, publicity, acting and so much more!


If you’d like to be on our mailing list or are thinking about joining us, please contact  our chairman, Paul, on 01244 341925 or email us

About us

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.
