Our Stage and Behind It!
We are unique in that we build our own stage just days before each production. We have it in kit form and we are always looking for willing helpers who are good with a hammer and screwdriver to put this together.
We also welcome help with front of house, make-up, costumes, props, scenery, running the bar and all the things essential to a successful production.
Of course if you can put your hand to directing a play, then do get in touch with us!
We usually put on two productions a year - in April and October at St Peter's Church Hall, Cranbourne, Winkfield.
Our regular rehearsal nights are Tuesdays at the hall with an additional rehearsal night usually on Mondays also at the hall.
We play to full houses with a great atmosphere and our productions cover a wide range of theatre including serious drama, comedy, period pieces and newly written plays including ones written by some of our own members.
If you don't fancy being on stage, you can still be part of a very friendly group, because there is always plenty to help out with backstage and front of house.
Our social calendar includes walks, picnics, pub nights, themed evenings and visits to other local productions.
QUOTE, from a member!
"I have been with CADS for over 10 years and I can honestly say I do not regret the day I walked apprehensively through the door."

"The word amateur in the group's name is almost misleading."
