Cuckfield Dramatic Society (CDS) is a thriving and expanding community theatre group in Mid-Sussex. Our aim is to entertain and have fun doing it!
- If you’ve any interest in performing (or supporting in other ways) then why not come and meet us at auditions or a club night?
This year we have a theme based around travel – so if commuting delays or security checks have got you down come and escape to our evening of Jocular Journeys with a meal included!
What a great success for our Fabulous Fifties Christmas Cabaret! Now an annual event our song & dance Xmas show has had people asking to book for 2017 already! (Will the 2017 show be the Swinging Sixties? You will just have to wait and see or get involved with the planning!)
Our talent for comedy has been well showcased in previous February Frolics short plays in 2016 (Last Tango in Cuckfield) or 2015 (Bridge Too Far) as well as the full length farces in 2014 “Anyone For Breakfast?” & 2016’s Pardon Me, Prime Minister.
But as well as a track record of delivering the belly laughs of out and out comedy CDS also produces fine drama performances – just see the feedback on our autumn 2016 show “On Golden Pond” or the as more subtle comedy such as 2015’s The Importance of Being Earnest.
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?
