Don’t miss out on our winter production – Cinderella. Written by Ben Crocker and Directed by our very own Emily Thomas.
Our summer production is ‘Entertaining Angels’ by Richard Everett and directed by Jeff Hutchinson.
Clergy wife Grace (award winning Tish Wells) has spent a lifetime on her best behaviour. Now following the death of her husband Bardolph (David Clarke), she is enjoying the new-found freedom to do and say exactly as she pleases. When her missionary sister Ruth (Sue Whitell) comes home to lend support, their old sisterly dynamics and rivalries soon come to the fore.
The dazzling cast: Tish, Sue, and Steph Letten (who worked together on ‘The Ladybirds’) are joined by veteran David Clarke and Debbie Trott, who is making a welcome return to the boards in Colyton.
‘Entertaining Angels’ deals with family secrets and lies and provides a comic mask for the serious issues of relationships, communication and compromise with astute, dry delivery.
A wonderful production not to be missed, so come and join us on the 13th – 16th July, at Colyton Town Hall.
Tickets are £9.00 each and are available at:
- Little Shop – Colyton
- Frank Property – Seaton
- The Archway Bookshop – Axminster
- On the door, each evening of the performance

THE LADYBIRDS at Western Area Semi-Final at theMERLIN THEATRE, FROME on SATURDAY 7 MAY 2016
Best performance EVER! But up against very stiff competition we didn’t *quite* make it to the final but adjudicator’s comments were amazing and even in the announcement of the winner, Tish Wells’ performance was highlighted yet again. Well done Ladybirds! The perfect way to bow out. Emily
Thank you for all the enthusiastic messages of congratulation following the success of The Ladybirds and Sailors Beware.
We now have details of the quarter final of the All England Festival, also to be staged at the Blackmore Theatre, Exmouth.
The Ladybirds is on first in the evening followed by a group from Bovey Tracey who will be performing Departure by Stephen Smith, a comedy with deeper tones based on the author’s experience of being stuck in an airport lounge, this explores reactions by optimistic and pessimistic families. The other groups involved are St. Austell Players (play title not known) and Stage by Stage youth group, Exmouth with The Perils of Pauline, who take part in the afternoon performance.
Obviously, we would be thrilled to have some support in the audience for our next round. If you can clear the space in your diary…
