Welcome to Charade Drama!

We are a friendly amateur dramatics group, based in Westbury-on-Trym, North Bristol.

We aim to put on two productions a year; one in Spring (often a set of one-act plays) and one in Autumn (usually a full-length production). Our most recent extravaganza has been ‘Trouble in Pantoland’ and it ran from the 24th to the 26th November. A set of photos taken at the dress rehearsal have been published on our Past Productions page. Do click through and take a look.

Who could save Pantoland from the Evil Wizard ‘He Whose Name Nobody Can Remember’? Snow White, Cinderella, Sleeping Beauty or maybe a Frog?!

Our 2016 Spring production, (Thurs 14th – Sat 16th April), was “The Weekend” by Michael Palin. It was very well attended and lots of fun, (see Past Productions, for pictures).

Last autumn’s production, called ‘The Inaccurate Conception’ and was a comic look at The Nativity, as performed by seven year olds!

During the Summer, the group meet regularly to do play readings, maintain contact and be sociable. This gives us the opportunity to choose potential future productions and explore plays we mightn’t be able to perform ourselves.

If you would like to be notified of our future productions or, even better, want to join us, on or off stage, then please do contact us.

We welcome actors and directors and anyone who is interested in helping us out back-stage, front-of-house, or with costumes and scenery. We enjoy working as a team, using everyone’s abilities, wherever their talents may lie.

If you’d like to give us a try, then we’d be delighted to hear from you.

Hope to see you at the next production!
