Play readingAs well as putting on productions, CADS runs a series of more-or-less regular meetings related to drama in all its aspects. Often these take the form of play readings but we've also had talks by visiting speakers, a film show, several quizzes and a number of excellent mini-workshops.

Recent meetings have included an exciting series of acting workshops focusing on duologues hosted by former professional actor Martin Maynard, and a hugely entertaining account of "Life After CADS" by former CADS regular and now professional actor Kim Ensor.  

Our most recent meetings have included an introduction to the technical aspects of the theatre, and a read-through of two plays we're recording for radio - more news of those here. We're hoping to have a very special visiting speaker along some time in the Spring, so watch this space for news

With all our evening meetings, there's no need to book - just turn up on the night! It's completely FREE, and open to absolutely anyone, whether or not you've been involved with CADS in the past. 

Our meetings normally take place (unless otherwise stated) at the Coombes Community Centre on Burns Road or The Old Schoolhouse in Market Hill, Royston. They usually start at 7.30 p.m. and last until about 9.00 p.m. (with maybe a break for refreshments, depending on the nature of the evening) but on occasion may go on slightly longer. 

If you have an idea for any future meetings, or would like to lead a session yourself, please contact the CADS Secretary....
