WADS programme for 2020
& the Corona Virus Epidemic
In the midst of the continuing uncertainty about the Coronavirus, what restrictions may be introduced and what will be the time scale, the committee continues to review when WADS may safely start operating again. A complete postponement of our 2020 centenary year has been the only possible and safe way forward for us.
Our planned Christmas show this year has, of course, now had to be postponed. We can se no way other than to move the show to Christmas 2021.
The Ghost Train.
Our Spring production is still on the cards for May 2021, assuming that we may safely commence rehearsals next year, this decision will be taken nearer the time with the full agreement of Sandra Barfield, the director, and cast.
The Centenary Ball is tentatively scheduled for July 2021. Again we will keep an eye on the government guidelines.
In these uncertain times, we at WADS encourage everyone to take care and be mindful of the government recommendation for protecting the health of you and your loved ones. We hope that we will be back to entertain you early next year.
Westerham Amateur Dramatic Society
WADS is approaching its centenary and continues to put on a broad range of plays and shows – from Chekhov to pantomime; modern drama to Victorian Music Hall; new works to classic favourites. Whether you are interested in appearing on stage, joining in behind the scenes; doing your bit for publicity; helping run the bar or welcoming our audience front of house, we promise you a warm welcome to this friendly society. And if you would like to direct – great! There’s no stuffy hierarchy here.
We also run workshops covering all aspects of performance and theatre production. Our main home is Westerham Hall whose stage we can transform into just about anything or anywhere. And with our state-of-the-art technical facilities, the illusion is complete.
We welcome anyone with enthusiasm, regardless of experience or expertise. Interested? Just e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll get right back in touch.
As one Member put it: “The great thing about WADS is that they take what they do seriously, but not themselves!”
