Welcome to Monkwearmouth Drama Group. We are a relatively new community group who have been going since 2011. We have put on regular productions and have 17 productions to our name in the last seven years. We are not connected to Monkwearmouth School or any other group.
We are located in the Priestman Hall, which is attached to St Andrew's Church, Talbot Road, Roker, Sunderland, Tyne and Wear, diagonally across the road from Roker Park. We have a wonderful stage and hall space at our disposal.
We try to be as professional as possible and expect people to learn their lines and turn up regularly for rehearsals but we are also a very friendly and welcoming group who enjoy what we do.
We are especially keen to welcome people who have never performed before or who have not performed for many years. We also accept children in Year 5 or above but under-16s absolutely MUST be accompanied by a parent at all times. You
DO NOT have to have anything to do with the church to be a member.
WE PRESENT SOME SHOWS IN THE ROUND, A FANTASTIC EXPERIENCE FOR ACTORS AND AUDIENCE ALIKE.
We usually perform three shows per year. We performed Much Ado About Nothing in March and The Wind in the Willows in June. Our pantomime, Mulan, will be held on November 15th-17th, with four performances overall.
We rehearse on Monday and Tuesday nights from 7-8.30 where possible. There will be some Sunday rehearsals nearer the performances.
