We run very friendly and welcoming sessions. No previous experience is necessary – come along and find out for yourself! You could rekindle a passion for the stage, relive happy memories of school plays of the past or just come along for something to do where you are learning something new as well as having a good time.

All are welcome to come along – no previous experience is necessary! Our acting adult group performs as North Walsham People’s Theatre.
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.
If you are cast for the show:
It is important you can make 85% of rehearsals and date availability must be confirmed at the first rehearsal, as this may affect casting. The Sunday rehearsals are important blocking rehearsals. The rehearsals marked with a * are important rehearsals that must be attended.
Each show has a participation fee (payable by those who are cast in the show). This production participation fee is £20, payable by cash, cheque or bank transfer, either at or by the 22 April.
