The passing of a legend

It is with great sadness that we must report the passing of our beloved Grahame Nightingale. Anyone fortunate enough to have “experienced” Grahame in any one of the many, many productions that he has blessed with his talent will appreciate the loss felt by all of us.

In these difficut times we are limited in how we can celebrate such a great man. In due course we will arrange a proper send off in true TADS style, but for now, anyone wishing to may make a contribution to Grahame and Dinahs chosen Charity: Cynthia Spencer Hospice

Spring Play Cancellation

It is with great sadness that Thrapston Amateur Dramatic Society announces the postponement of its Spring Play.

It has not been an easy decision but the wellbeing and safety of our members, volunteers and audiences is our upmost priority and following government advice to limit social gatherings and to close theatres, we feel it would be irresponsible to continue with the production at the current time.

We would encourage you to keep in contact as we want to do our bit to support and entertain our local community and will be looking for ways to do this which are safe for both us and our loyal supporters. Further announcements on the status of future productions will be made as and when we are able to clarify.

Spring play update & Auditions!

After much discussion and deliberation, we have decided to change our previously advertised spring play to “Wild Goose Chase”, a farce by Derek Benfield.

“Chester Dreadnought bluffs his way into the crumbling stately home of an aristocratic family, and even a trigger-happy belted Lord suffering from hallucinations cannot keep at bay the enterprising pair of Jewel thieves who are pursuing their loot – not to mention Chester – round the castle. Suits of armour and secret doors, mistaken identities and dotty servants all help to provide the variety of fare that goes to the making of this wild goose chase.”

Show dates will be Wednesday 20th to Saturday 23rd May 2020.

Auditions will take place on Wednesday February 12th at 7.30pm at the Woolpack, Islip.

The show is directed by James MacWilliam and will be performed at the Thrapston Plaza from Wednesday 13th – Saturday 16th November 2019. Doors open at 7pm, performance starts at 7:30pm sharp.

Boris Smolensky’s budget repertory production of “Murder at Priorswell Manor” is looking decidedly shaky. The cast are more interested in their egos than the play and life imitates art when Boris’s wife, Renee, is murdered on stage...
