Club Nights

Upcoming Dates and Activities

Wednesday 20th Sept at 8pm
A CDS Open Event – All welcome! Free!

       Would We Lie To You?
                  Or Will You Lie To Us?

September’s club night event  is open to everyone (potential members, guests, the public) and will be an evening of improvisational practice at being convincing – aka lying on the hoof… Ad hoc teams will be formed on the night with people taking turns to tell tall tales, which may or may not be true.

Massive prizes!  Fame and glory!
Guest appearances by Hollywood and West End Stars!
Free OBE’s for all attendees …

Can you spot the truth from the acting? Who will be provide the most unbelievable truths and the most convincing lies?

Rounds planned include  Tall Tales,  Ring of Truth,  Call My Bluff, Home Truths and Quick-Fire Lies, (not to mention things we are yet to make up).

Visitors from other groups, or anyone interested in some free entertainment are very welcome! Drop us a line first or just turn up!

Can you Call My Bluff in defining obscure words or making up a red herring?

Cards with briefing material will be handed out to those taking a turn – no preparation required!

Bring nothing except your imagination and sense of humour!

Will you get a truth to reveal while sounding unconvincing?
Or a lie to conceal while seeming shifty?

Whether you need to make up a false explanation for an unlikely fact, or improvise a lie based around a truth…
Your acting and the evening’s fun will depend on sincerity.
Once you can fake that you’ve got it made!

  • The public are invite to attend and laugh with and at us, no reservations and no entry charges – but a charity collection will be made!

Location is the White Harte as usual!

About Our Club Nights

After the success of recent club nights we decided to hold them more often and on a regular schedule from 2015. Activities vary, but it’s a chance to meet, talk and do something outside of show planning, auditions and rehearsals!

So CDS club nights are part social, part educational, but always we hope fun!

We occasionally skip or reschedule a month due to an imminent production or summer holidays, so do please check the website page or latest newsletter (usually sent the week before club night).

Keeping a schedule of activities fresh and fun means we are always keen to get more volunteers to organise an evening. This is a great way for people with an interest to help CDS, without the larger commitment of a role on the committee or getting involved with a production on or off stage! If you are interested or just have an idea please get in touch! We can support you as much or as little as required!

Past activities have included improvisation games, play readings and passing on tips and techniques on various aspects of acting and stagecraft.

Unless otherwise indicated they are all held at the White Harte meeting room.

So why not make a note of the CDS Club Night on the Third Wednesday  in each month in your diary!

(Please check website or newsletter for details and confirmation!)
