Cuckfield Dramatic Society (CDS) is an established and expanding community theatre group in Mid-Sussex. Our aim is to entertain and have fun doing it!
Our charity Murder Mystery Dinner Murder On Air will be on for one night only on October 7th , just before our next major production On Golden Pond from October 26th to 29th. This warm and moving story of ageing and relationships, won prizes on Broadway, before becoming a hit film in 1981.
Then in December it’s the Fabulous Fifties Christmas Cabaret 2016 – following up the our hit song and and dance show from last year. Public sales will start on October 3rd.
CDS’s talent for comedy has been well showcased in the February Frolics short plays in 2016 (Last Tango in Cuckfield) or 2015(Bridge Too Far) and the 2014 full length farce “Anyone For Breakfast?” as well as more subtle comedy such as The Importance of Being Earnest. But as well as a track record of delivering the belly laughs of out and out comedy CDS also produces fine drama performances – so don’t miss out autumn show “On Golden Pond“.
We normally hold two major play performances a year (during the May and October half-term holidays) as well as the two night February Frolics and the new Christmas Cabaret. With more active members we hope to continue to expand the type and number of shows we produce.
Most of our productions are held in the Queen’s Hall in Cuckfield High Street, (Cuckfield is just outside Haywards Heath).
Although there is a hard core of Cuckfield residents in the society we welcome members from the wider area with people from Haywards Heath, Burgess Hill and further afield.
We aim to always present the shows to the highest standards possible and audience members typically come not only from the Mid-Sussex locality, but also longer distances from both East and West Sussex.
But what do you think?
