Rackheath Players's Description
We are a small, friendly amateur dramatic society based in the village of Rackheath, just on the north eastern outskirts of Norwich. We stage three productions a year - traditionally a pantomime/family show in February involving many local children, and two other productions, one in Spring/ early Summer and one in the Autumn Our output is varied - comedy, drama, pantomime, full length plays or one act plays - basically whatever our members want to perform, giving wide scope for people to try a bit of everything. We are always looking for new members, and have a relative shortage of males and are looking for people with music playing abilities. Also anyone whose interest is not on-stage are welcome as well, as there is plenty of backstage and technical jobs to do. Rehearsals are held weekly from 8.00 - 10.00pm on a Thursday, at Rackheath Village Hall. As a production draws near, more frequent and slightly earlier rehearsals are held.
C.U.D.O.S. (Crewkerne United Dramatic and Operatic Society), as the name suggests, is based in Crewkerne and we put on four shows a year in The Victoria Hall. They are all great fun to be a part of, not to mention a hit with our audiences. Known on the circuit as one of the friendliest societies in the area, we have a membership that tends to stay with us and we always welcome new members, and so the society keeps growing. Our membership fees are the lowest around and we have no rehearsal or shows fees; once you have paid the annual membership everything else is covered. Every year we stage a pantomime in January, a play in May, a musical in September and a Christmas Concert in December. The 'C.U.D.O.S. family' is a great group to be a member of. We hold several social functions throughout the year including quiz nights, treasure hunts, a barbeque, a dinner dance and the inimitable frog racing night, all of which are very well attended. There are many ways to get involved with C.U.D.O.S. so if you are interested please visit our CONTACT page to start your first steps to becoming a member of our friendly society. In 2001, C.U.D.O.S. was formed from the unification of Crewkerne Players, the amateur drama group of the town, and from Crewkerne Amateur Operatic Society. For many years these two societies had existed happily side by side, with Crewkerne Players doing two plays in the town and a panto each year and the Operatic doing two shows, one of which was at the Octagon. However, once the Operatic decided to only perform in Crewkerne it soon became obvious that the same people were members of both societies and the committees were virtually interchangeable. So, to increase the membership of both while enabling members to only pay one fee, Crewkerne United Dramatic and Operatic Society, C.U.D.O.S. for short, was born. This was the best move the societies had ever made and C.U.D.O.S. went from strength to strength, gaining in reputation and status throughout Somerset and winning many awards and nominations in the Somerset Federation of Drama competitions for plays, musicals and pantos.

Grosvenor Light Opera Company's Description
GLOC is London's leading G&S Society, and one of the only amateur operatic societies both to rehearse and perform in Central London. As a result, we attract a membership largely of young professionals who work in the centre of town, together with some students attending one of London's universities and colleges. We perform at least one fully-staged G&S production, accompanied by a professional orchestra, every season and supplement this with other staged and semi-staged concert performances, together with other opportunities to improve our members' singing skills and repertoire knowledge. We are a very sociable society, and organise events and parties for our members, find occasional busking opportunities, and invariably find time for a catch-up with each other in the pub after rehearsals. We pride ourselves on being friendly and welcoming to new members. In 2013 GLOC made their debut performance at the International G&S Festival in Buxton with Patience, and performed again in Harrogate in 2014 with The Mikado. Rehearsals are well underway for our Winter show - the classic panto, Jack and the Beanstalk. Our very own Liam Geoghegan has rewritten the classic tale for a modern audience. The show is taking place on 5th December at St Saviour's Church Hall, 7.30pm! BUY TICKETS now from our website or email reservations to email@example.com.
