'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.

Hello! Things are hotting up for the Winter seasons of our societies, with some significant recent announcements. 

Tomorrow, 13th November, Dartington Playgoers are holding a preview night for their forthcoming production of 'The Assembly Women'. This will now take place at Studio 1 rather than Studio 31. Richard Clark has extended this invitation to all 'Thespis' readers and the members of local societies, however you will need to  pre-book...don't just turn up on the night!  Please contact Richard on rsmaclark@gmail.com to reserve a seat. Tickets are half price at £5. See you there?

Please ensure that you let me know of changes and additions to your programmes. Several items I've only picked up by chance.    Best wishes, John.
