Now have our new home, and would welcome new members
We have held our first AGM at our new base - the United Reform Church, West St, Bedminster, Bristol BS3 3PG (on the corner of Stanley Street South).
Our next One Act play, "Between Mouthfuls" by Alan Ayckbourn, has been cast and is well into rehearsals. It will be performed at both the Bristol (February 21st) and Avon (March 9th or 10th) one-act festivals this year,
and also at the Hen & Chicken in Southville on March 15th.
We would welcome new members, and people who would like to be part of our Crew, Backstage and Front of House, as well as actors for future productions.
