“I thoroughly enjoy getting the brain active, working in small groups and doing something different with my evening. “ (Participant, aged 42)

Summer 2018 production

We’ll be working on a new play – a dark comedy that explores friendship, loyalty and what it’s like to break the routine when you reach 45!
Friday 1 and Saturday 2 June (7.30pm shows) at North Walsham Pop Up People’s Theatre at the Black Swan.

Drama Workshop on Thursday 19 April, 7-9pm
We’ll be having a drama workshop and audition (auditions are through group work and an excerpt of a script given on the day, you won’t be put on the spot!). We will need a cast of just 8 people for this show. All are welcome to come along to this workshop, for drama games and to explore some acting tasks. It will be very informal and a chance to get to know everyone.
