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 was be held on Sunday 23rd April 2017 at The Bell Inn, Evercreech.
