Theatre is a community event. The production and performance of theatre can bring people together: all ages, all cultures, all walks of life.

There’s no connection like people can get to theatre– we all watch TV and movies, but the process of watching, or even acting in a play, brings people together. Our pantomimes have, in the past, brought several thousand people together over a weekend, and have been an important part of life in the area.
At the moment, this way of life is more and more threatened by the modern world; people don’t have time to rehearse, to perform, or to do all the necessary backstage roles inherent in putting on a play.

We’re not able to perform at the scale that we once did due to many reasons: lack of local government support; changes in lifestyle meaning people are less able to commit to shows; professionalisation of theatre by big organisations; competition by Netflix and a thousand other types of entertainment.

We need your help to make sure we can introduce a new generation to theatre and promote the love of theatre for years to come.

Why we need your help.

  • Widening Participation: we want to make cost irrelevant for our potential audience, and encourage those that would not normally be able to attend the theatre. By supporting us, we will be able to make more tickets available for free to local charities and organisations. Previously, we have been able to make tickets available to local homeless charities, children’s charities, retirement homes, and hospices.
  • One-off-projects: we often need equipment for a production- for example, we often hire lights or microphones, which has some large expense. We would like to be able to update some of our equipment, and pay for the costs of storage of this equipment.

  • Every Chameleon needs a home! A long term dream: We’d like to work with other local groups and organisations to find a place of our own. Recently, the costs of hiring even council owned theatres means it’s very difficult to stage large productions, and finding a more permanent home would mean more stability for the group, and better productions.

How can I help?

A marvellous thing you can do is to continue to support us by coming to see our shows! We’re also always welcome to new members, so if you want to come act, help backstage, or front of house, we’d love to hear from you.
