Award winning productions and performances.

Wotton-under-Edge Dramatic Society is one of Gloucestershire’s oldest amateur theatre groups, with a series of over 200 productions since its formation in 1932. Classic and modern dramas provide serious entertainment for the discerning theatregoer. Popular pantomimes, specially written by Society members Jane Parker and Anthony Young, regularly delight audiences of all ages. Our performances are in a small theatre in the Town Hall, with a proscenium arched stage and space for productions “in the round”. Audiences of around 100 enjoy comfortable seating and full access for those with disabilities. There have also been occasional productions “on tour”, in local churches or even a pub garden. Shows are regularly entered for county drama awards and regional Rose Bowl competitions, garnering many prizes for acting, direction, costumes and production.

The home of drama in Wotton

Thanks to the generosity of long-time supporters the Morley family, the Society owns its own purpose built  club room close to the town centre. There’s a full size rehearsal space, costume, props and scenery storage as well as the all important refreshment facilities.
