CORONAVIRUS UPDATE:

A message from our Chairman:

We regret to announce that we shall be unable to present a play in April, as would normally be part of our yearly program of productions.  While this has been a regrettable decision, we are led by ongoing government guidelines around social distancing and public health advice surrounding the Coronavirus pandemic, which sadly make such public gatherings an unrealistic proposition at present.   

This is a challenging time for local amateur theatre, as many drama groups have had to put productions on hold since March 2020.  We will continue to monitor governmental guidelines and look forward to returning to “business as usual” as soon as it is safe and practical to do so.  

Theatre remains a hugely important artistic endeavour, of which young and old alike are encouraged to take an active interest in.  Pantomimes, plays and musicals play an important role in local community engagement, and we look forward to welcoming you back to The De La Salle Theatre (which underwent impressive renovation work last year) as soon as we can, hopefully well in time for another trip to Panto Land in January 2022, if not sooner.

Director

John Sivewright

John has been a member of ASDS since he was just 15, first appearing as John Darling in 'Peter Pan'.  Since then he has gone on to play many varied roles, from a Kangeroo to a gangster, and from an OAP to a 10-year-old boy!  He has also directed for the Society, notably our 2018 pantomime 'Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs'. John has always enjoyed being a member of ASDS due to the friendly, welcoming atmosphere and the high standards the Society sets for itself.
