Established in 1908 we are proud to be one of the oldest amateur theatre companies in the UK. We strive to present the work of William Shakespeare and other wonderful theatre to the Derby audience. An amateur group with professional standards.


Our next production will be William Shakespeare’s 'Richard III', directed by Terry & Laura Smith

We’ll be presenting this exciting new show at the Guildhall Theatre in Derby from the 5th to the 9th of March 2019 - more details will be available very soon!
