'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, everybody! Looking down the 'Thespis' listing, we are overwhelmed by pantos... I wonder why?! Alan Frayn seems to be a popular writer, but there's a fair representation of locally-written material......'Aladdin' at Dartmouth with Bill Hunt; 'The Firebird' at South Brent with Tim McGill and the intriguing 'Panto on the Prairie' at Dawlish!
Add Jef Pirie's play 'If the Labyrinth' at Teignmouth and the conclusion is that we are not short of home-spun scripts in South Devon, and if they're all as good as Peter Whittle's musical 'Edna's Emporium' we're on to a good thing!
I'll see you the other side of Christmas....exciting times! Best wishes, John.
I have been asked to distinguish between each 'Thespis', so from now on the listing won't appear as 'Latest Thespis', it will include the issue date. Sorry if that was confusing! Please keep me up to date with your productions so that 'Thespis' is as accurate as possible. Thanks.
