About Us

Melbourn Amateur Dramatics Society (MADS) are a newly re-established group. The Society was set up by Donna Sleight a Melbourn resident in order to bring entertainment, fun and regular social events to residents of Melbourn, Meldreth and surrounding villages.


Our very first performance “The Lost Slipper” was performed in November 2012. The cast included local people that have acted before and some that are treading the boards for the very first time! We range in ages from 16 to over 60.
