The director, cast and crew would like to thank the generous audiences who supported SDC’s recent production of Flare Path. We hope we paid a fitting tribute to the people of the WW2 era with our performance of Terence Rattigan’s excellent play.
SDC’s next production will be Pygmalion by Bernard Shaw at Theatre Severn, Shrewsbury from 06 to 09 November, 2019. Tickets will be on sale soon.
How we began
SDC was founded in 1958 as Shropshire County Drama Group by the late Bert Amies, OBE, the former county drama adviser. The name was changed to Shropshire Drama Company in 2005.
Enshrined in the constitution of SDC is Bert’s original brief to perform ‘challenging, worthwhile and experimental drama’, which up until recently was SDC’s strapline. It is now ‘engaging live theatre’.
What we offer
SDC aspires to provide its audiences with high quality performances covering a wide genre of plays. Its members have the chance to be involved in productions at a variety of venues. Opportunities are also available to develop and hone skills in various aspects of theatre, through an expansive and continually reviewed programme of workshops and other social activities.
If you are attracted to the idea of being part of a dynamic, friendly company – please get in touch.
