As seen on national BBC 1 television
We are an award winning, small, family-friendly, completely non-profit, community theatre / amateur dramatic society based in the beautiful fishing port of Brixham; Devon (in South West England) and we perform theatre shows in Brixham, around Torbay, and South Devon, based on historical events, with a strong ethos of bringing to life the historical heritage of the Southwest in many of our productions.
We were founded in late 2005 by two Brixham performers, and performed our first production in the summer of 2006. Since then we have gone from strength to strength, and are now growing rapidly, with awards won and an increasing member base, and an appearance on a national BBC 1 TV programme.
New members are always welcomed regardless of their background, experience, beliefs or nationality; we provide an exciting hobby, performance experience and education, and a friendly, safe, inclusive atmosphere. We are not a "childrens" group, and in general require our members to be aged 16 (to 116!!!!), however younger performers may be accepted for some shows, with the strict requirement that they are accompanied by a parent or legal guardian at all times.
The vast majority of our shows and projects are about local history and mythology, and are written by local authors. It is part of our ethos to promote the history of Brixham, Torbay and South Devon through theatre and drama, and provide a busy, high-quality, family-friendly group where local people can develop their skills.
