'Thespis' - a newsletter of amateur productions in the area

'Thespis' is a newsletter, produced by John Miles, of all the information on amateur drama productions in the Torbay and South Devon area.

The aim is for local groups to share information, help each other with casting, prop loans and to avoid clashes of production choices and dates.

If you are interested in taking part in amateur drama shows then this is the place to check out which groups exist, what shows are coming up and when auditions are being held.

Have fun on the stage or behind the scenes.

Latest update 8.11.2020

After a long absence for obvious reasons, here's 'The Torbay Thespis' once again.

I'm pleased to report that 'Bijou Theatre Company' has rescheduled the programme and hopes to be able to bring you a couple of plays in February and April next year. 

This is a forecast, so the dates cannot be guaranteed, however it just might be possible.

Well done 'Bijou' and Maureen's team at 'The Palace'. 

Let's hope..... best wishes, John.
