Our next production will be a self-penned creation entitled 41 Crowns. Written by SDC member Michele Rowland-Jones and entitled 41 Crowns it will run for two nights – June 24 and 25 in The Loft at The Old Post Office pub, Shrewsbury.
Performed by four actors and a musician and delivered through a combination of rhyming verse, music, readings and poetry, 41 Crowns is a wry and quirky observation of the activities of our kings and queens during the reign of various regal houses; such as the Plantagenets, Tudors and Stuarts; since 1066 and up to the incumbent monarch Elizabeth II – 41 in total. Tickets are £5 and available to purchase online HERE (+ booking fee) or on the door.
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.
