Ever wanted to hear a piece you’ve written performed?

Ever wanted to try your hand at directing?

Ever wanted to act but have been unable to spare the time for major productions?


Then Bath Drama’s Reading Evenings could be just the thing for you. Meetings take place monthly in the Hut on Vane Street (third Tuesday of every month).

You can be involved with a rehearsed reading…a play with a selected cast who all perform script in hand (no need to learn lines). Or keep it simple with a small group gathered to read through a play together. Just turn up!

All the events are free and refreshments are usually laid on. Support can be provided and scripts will be organised for you. A simple sound and light system is available and staging can be assembled.

The February Reading on the 18th Feb is a rehearsed piece, Patrick Hamilton’s ‘Rope’  directed by Bonnie- Rose Aherin.

Steve Curtis will be leading an Agatha Christie night in March. Turn up and grab a part.

Similarly in April, Colin Barnes is hosting a modern classic, John McGrath’s ‘Events While Guarding the Bofors Gun’. Again just turn up and join in. Couldn’t be simpler!

So if you have written a piece that you want performed, if you want to direct and/or you want to act then just contact Colin Barnes and he can fit you into the Reading Evenings. Otherwise just go along and and enjoy being a member of the audience.
