A big thank you to the members who worked so hard to organise and man the WCDS stand at this year's Village Show on 14th July. Their brilliant efforts and gorgeous costumes gained us new members and established contact with many other interested parties, as well as raising money for the Village Show with their intriguing Treasure Hunt and Pin the Tail on the Donkey.

The Team

LL and Anne Sugarman

Janet Methley welcomes Mrs Susan Pyper, Lord-Lieutenant of West Sussex, who opened the show, and Anne Sugarman, the Chairman of the Show organising committee.

We are...

... a very friendly long established but go-ahead group who enjoy getting together to put on plays for the local community. Whether you just want to come and watch our productions or would like to come and help you're very welcome. You could take an active role as an actor, front-of-house or backstage hand, or in technical support.

Our Next Events

NEXT AUDITIONS: come along to Ralph Wigg’s auditions on the 23rd and 26th July for our November production of House Guest by Francis Durbridge. As usual these auditions will be held in the Village Hall starting at 7.30. This thriller has a cast of four men and four women so there are opportunities for all.

MEMBERS' EVENING: Our next Members' Evening is Saturday 18 August, which will include a production of a one-act play Black Knight by Rosemary Lawrence, author of The Green Eye which was performed in August of 2016.

          The Society at Work

We Need Some Young(er) People

We welcome all ages to the society, but there is a distinct lack of actors and backstage people in the age range of 18 to 50-60 years. To continue to put on the plays we wish we need more people in this age range. Are you this person or Do you know of any? See membership or contact anyone on the committee for more information.
