We are a small but lively Theatre Group based in Timsbury in North East Somerset.
We aim to put on a play in the Spring, an entertainment evening in the early summer and our widely renowned pantomime in December.
We meet in the Conygre Hall, North Road, Timsbury most Tuesday evenings at 8pm and are always interested in greeting new members. You don't even have to get up on stage - we are always seeking people with varied skills to help with productions, from scene building to costumes and music.
We also have an active social calendar, with theatre trips, skittles evenings, an annual dinner, a Treasure Hunt and various other fun activities. During the summer we have play readings to pick the following year’s productions - there is always something going on!
Each year we raise money for a charity, members vote on the charity at our AGM and at each production we collect donations.
Our charity for 2018/19 was 'Off the Record' a local charity to improve the emotional health and well being of young people. Over the last year our audiences have raised £600 for this worthy cause, many thanks to you all.
Our 2019/20 charity is 'The Forever Friends Appeal' for Bath RUH
