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!
Written by CDS members Richard Willis and Paul Ruse, Bridge To Farce began its life as a one act play presented in 2015 at the February Frolics. where CDS presents a selection of sketches and a short play. The 200 people who saw that can now see what happened next… while those who didn’t will have more opportunity.
The 2016 Frolics play (Last Tango in Cuckfield) and this year’s February Frolics play “On Hold At 30,000 feet”, have all been very well received as have 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.
If you’ve any interest in performing (or supporting in other ways either or or off stage) then do please get in touch or see our Get Involved page! New faces are always welcome at auditions or club nights.
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?
