Drama group’s ‘fabulous’ 50

ST STEPHEN’S (Soundwell) Drama Group will take a trip down memory lane with their long-awaited 50th anniversary show.

Postponed by two years due to not being able to perform during 2021 and the majority of last year, ’50 Fabulous Years (and one pandemic)’ celebrates songs and sketches from stage, film and television from 1971, the year that the group was established, all the way through to the present day.

It will include hits from shows including ‘Grease’ and ‘Mamma Mia!’

St Stephen’s Drama Group was founded by four members of the church who wanted to provide something for the wider community, staging two productions a year, with the first a production of JB Priestley’s ‘An Inspector Calls’.

A spokesperson for the group said: “We now have over 20 members and are a well established presence in your local community.

“This anniversary special is co-produced by three long standing members of the group, Kate Kendell, Samantha Roberts and Debbie Townsend.

“You can expect a fun variety evening, showcasing the dramatic highlights of the last 50 years.”

Tickets are available now for all three performances, which take place on July 13 to 15 at St Stephen’s Soundwell Church Hall, starting at 7.30pm reach night.

Tickets cost £7 per person and are available at www.ticketsource.co.uk or by calling the box office on 07935 516446.
