Ropley Dramatic Society would like to thank all those of you who supported our Autumn production,‘Theft’ – and what wonderful audiences you were! Theft is a very clever play, with so many funny lines, and both nights our audiences picked up all the humour – always encouraging for the actors to hear!

As many of you will know, we are a small group – although we would very much like to be larger! In fact, we currently find ourselves in the unfortunate position of having to cancel our March 2019
production, which was going to be a one-act comedy with a fish and chip supper. This is purely due to the fact that our usual actors are not available. Hopefully we can continue with another production in November 2019, but we really do need some more actors.

If anyone out there is interested in ‘treading the boards’ at Ropley, whether or not you have any
experience, do please do get in touch for more information. We rehearse twice a week, on Tuesday and Thursday evenings, usually with an 8 week run, so it is a big commitment. However, it is also a lot of fun and we are a very friendly group, so do give us a try if you are keen to have a go. Just contact us on:

Following our summer break we are now pleased to announce details of our Autumn production, “Theft” a two-act play by Eric Chappell. Performance dates will be  Friday 16th and Saturday 17th November in Ropley Parish Hall, curtain up 8.00pm.

“Theft” is an intriguing, witty play with some lovely “gentle chuckle” comedy, interesting characters and a clever plot with plenty of twists and turns. The play is cast with Brian Arrowsmith, Steve Dunne, Jane Parsons, Dom Clifford and Claire Fraser. Our unsung heroes backstage include Giles Fletcher on Lighting, Nick Raynham on Sound and Jane Burton on Props. Our Director will be Keith Outterside.
