bringing comedy drama to Burnham and Berrow

About Us

Introducing Stage 2 drama group…

Stage 2 drama started out in 2001 and have been going strong ever since! We are an amdram theatre group based in Berrow, Burnham on Sea but drawing members from all the surrounding district. Join us on stage or behind the scenes. New members are ALWAYS welcome! ­ You don’t have to be from Berrow to join! While the core membership is from Berrow or Burnham, we have people from Bristol and further afield who have acted with us and enjoyed being part of our friendly group.

An exciting time is guaranteed with stage 2 drama!

We perform 2 plays each year in April / May and November.   The plays are usually comedy or farce and we work hard to find good quality scripts to use.  Novices and experienced actors  can be assured of a warm welcome and help and support whenever needed.  Both stage 2 drama group and our audiences like to see new faces!  If you prefer to remain in the background there are plenty of ways that you can get involved backstage.  If you have any queries or want to join our mailing list to receive details of future events, please contact us by completing the form on the “Contact” page.  Also if you have any questions or comments at all, go ahead and send via the contact form – we would be delighted to hear from you. – click here to go to the contact page.

For rehearsals and performance we use Berrow Village Hall which has recently undergone extensive rebuilding and refurbishment.  We have very good audiences on our 3 night runs which are normally Thursday to Saturday.

We usually lay on a licensed bar so that our audience can enjoy a glass of wine, beer or soft drink during the show and in the interval.

As a group we have a good social life. We normally hold at least one barbecue during the summer and a winter dinner with party games and entertainments as well as going out see other theatre groups, shows, gigs any other excuse we can find to enjoy life!

We meet on Friday evenings at 8pm in Berrow Village Hall where we read / rehearse for 2 hours with a refreshment break at about 9pm and social get together in the pub afterwards.  We do not hold formal auditions or anything scary like that so why not give it a try? We are actively seeking new members interested in Performing or in joining our backstage / technical team. No need to make an appointment, just come along and listen / join in / have a laugh.

Currently the membership is £10 per year plus rehearsal fees of £1 per meeting (covering room hire and refreshments).  You are very welcome to come along for a few meetings to see if you like us before deciding whether to join.

We are always looking for new ideas and ways to enhance our productions so please don’t be shy – we’re a very friendly group and we would love you to join us.
