Firstly a warm welcome to new and returning guests, we’re happy to see you and glad you came!
Storrington Dramatic Society are a group of people who like to entertain, create and share their love of the stage (and backstage) with you, the audience. We put on a number of productions throughout the year, and a pantomime at Christmas.
Come, look round our website – if you spot something you like, fancy joining us on stage, off stage, front of house or in the band please get in touch – you’ll find all our details in the contact us section.
As Shakespeare once wrote, “All the worlds a stage” – and if it wasn’t for you the audience, it’d be a lonely one.
by Ernest Thompson
For our next production we are very pleased to announce that we we will be staging a production of the play, written by Ernest Thompson, On Golden Pond. This excellent play was famously turned in to an Oscar nominated film in 1981 staring Henry Fonda and Katherine Hepburn.
The play is a gentle comedy drama which develops nicely over two acts. Directed by Caroline Woodley show dates will be 22nd to 25th March 2017.
Cantankerous retiree Norman Thayer and his conciliatory wife, Ethel, spend summers at their New England vacation home on the shores of idyllic Golden Pond. This year, their adult daughter, Chelsea, visits with her new fiancée and his teenage son, Billy on their way to Europe. After leaving Billy behind to bond with Norman, Chelsea returns, attempting to repair the long-strained relationship with her aging father before it’s too late.
The easiest way to get in touch with us is by email – or by popping down on a Tuesday or Thursday, we normally rehearse from 7.45pm to 10pm.
