Shropshire Drama Company

Description:

A unique team of like-minded and highly talented actors and technicians whose aim is to bring challenging and innovative theatre to the people of Shropshire and beyond.Shropshire Drama Company (SDC), formerly Shropshire County Drama Group was formed by the late Bert Amies O.B.E., the County Drama & Arts Adviser for Shropshire from 1958 to 1981. He drew upon acting talent from all across the county and established a reputation for directing and producing quality and innovative drama of the highest standard. He was responsible for inspiring many young actors and encouraging them to follow stage careers. Since Bert’s death in 1992 SDC has grown in the traditions he began. Membership of SDC is by invitation and members work together to achieve ever-higher quality in theatre. High ideals of companionship and excellence do not obscure the fact that members come together to have a good time and ‘make good noyse’! Though we work towards excellence we are not elitist, recruiting people with experience in high-level drama and with none, placing equal responsibility on all members to be the best that they can possibly be. SDC is founded as much on hard work and goodwill as it is on talent. Our expectations are that members commit to learning and, once selected, they will work hard to develop their skills and insights so that they might make a contribution to the search for excellence
