Evercreech Drama Group

Evercreech Drama Group has been entertaining audiences since 1991 when Mrs Mollie Purse MBE was inspired to form the group initially to help boost the much needed funds for the up-keep of the village hall. To this day we are a band of like-minded people who enjoy amateur dramatics, being on stage and performing, behind the scenes, making costumes, set design, or simply being part of a friendly group of people.

Like all groups, clubs, and societies we are always looking for people who are interested in being part of something either as a one off participant or lifelong supporter. For further information, please do contact Greg Jessop on 01749 831122 or e-mail evercreechdg@gmail.com “you never know what it’s like till you’ve tried it”.

We endeavour to do a production every year,  so far these have included; The Happiest Days of Your Life, Daisy Pulls It Off, Billy Liar, Oliver, Bazaar & Rummage, Womberang, Black Comedy, The Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe, Calendar Girls, The Allotment, Gosforth`s Fete and numerous pantomimes.

We also like to produce plays for younger people to introduce them to drama and have some fun and our most recent production was Babe - the sheep pig in November 2015. It involved 16 local children who had a great time and their fantastic performances were appreciated by three packed houses.


The Annual General Meeting will be held in April 2018 at The Bell Inn, Evercreech.




AUDITIONS FOR OUR NEXT PRODUCTION, "Curtain Up" were a great success, the show is now cast and rehearsals are underway.

With the show running in the week between 22nd April and 28th April

If anyone is interested in scenery and set design and would like to be involved in this production please contact Greg on 01749 831122.

"Curtain Up" is the story of five women who inherit equal shares in a dilapidated theatre and plan to bring it back to life again. When plans for their greatest fundraising event go awry, its a race to keep their audience from guessing the truth of the matter. A fast-paced and very funny comedy with five great roles for women.

If you are interested in the show but unable to attend the audition, please contact us on  evercreechdg@gmail.com
