Formed in 1974 at Mow Cop Primitive Methodist Chapel, we originally performed at Mount Pleasant Village Hall before moving to Kidsgrove Town hall. This was to become our home until 1995 which is when we became affiliated to Milton Youth Centre and started to perform at The Mitchell Theatre and now at the Forum Theatre.
We are also acknowledged as Staffordshire's very own Theatre of Comedy Company with our hilarious productions of some of the very best trouser dropping farces and roll in the aisle British comedies such as Run for your Wife, Allo Allo, Not Now Darling, Seasons Greetings, Pools Paradise and Friends and Neighbours, September In The Rain and Shirley Valentine.
We have also staged the Amateur Premiere Productions of the musicals Sex, Drugs and Rick and Noel by David Tristram and Radio Times by Noel Gay other acclaimed musicals include I Don't Want to Set the World on Fire by Bob Eaton, Happy as a Sandbag by Ken Lee, and Honk! by George Stiles and Anthony Drewe.
Over the years we have also become renowned for our laughter filled traditional pantomimes. Recent pantos at the Forum Theatre have been Snow White, Mother Goose and Robin Hood & Babes in the Wood.
We have also represented Staffordshire many times in the All England One Act Play Festival, with such plays as The Real Inspector Hound by Tom Stoppard, Dead Nice by Andrea Macphail and What's for Pudding and The Extraordinary Revelations of Orca The Goldfish by David Tristram.
We are a very friendly company who always welcome new members. We have thriving Junior, Youth and Adult sections and meet in Milton.
