About Us

About Us

MADS are a friendly and welcoming group of aspiring amateurs who focus on bringing people together by bringing fun and laughter to every show. Serious plays or monologues are not for us!

Our 24 cast and crew members are made up of local people of all ages and abilities and we always welcome new members, particularly those with an interest in backstage roles or have technical knowledge in sound or lighting equipment.


What do our ticket buyers say about us?


Here are some quotes from our last show (Cinderella - what could possibly go wrong?)………….


“Absolutely brilliant I laughed from beginning to end – well done to all involved for another great show”


“My jaws are literally aching from laughing so much, it was a brilliant show the best yet”


“I’ve not been to one of your shows before but I shall definitely be coming again, a really fun evening”


“Fantastic evening and at a fraction of the price of bigger city shows in fact you have more pyrotechnics and laugh out loud moments than the professional shows. You are an amazing group, thank you for a fab evening”


“There are not enough laughs in this world but MADS certainly hits the spot every time, keep up the good work guys”.
