The Society was formed in 1952 and has performed a variety of shows each year since then. For a full list of all our previous productions, see here. We have approximately 30 playing members and a further 20 or so non-playing members. Our members are of all ages and backgrounds and new members are always welcome, Our season starts late August, early September with music rehearsals. Auditions for principal parts are held after about 4 weeks, and the show week is either the following March or April.

Rehearsals take place at the Mayflower Church Hall, Ethel Road, Evington, Leicester every Wednesday from 7:30 pm to 10:00 pm. Principals also rehearse there on Thursday nights as well.

Our shows are performed at The Little Theatre, Dover Street, Leicester. This is owned and run by The Leicester Drama Society and has all the facilities and technical equipment of a professional theatre. It boasts a 349 seat auditorium with a wonderful atmosphere.

Social activities outside rehearsals are also very important to us and we try to arrange several events throughout the year, e.g. tenpin bowling and skittles evenings, trips to see other theatrical productions, both amateur and professional etc. As stated above, we are always happy to welcome new members and would love to see you at rehearsals.
