History of HHTC
The Drama Group in Hyde Heath was founded in 1965 by an enthusiastic band of ladies from the Village WI who created a thriving group which continues to this day. We are an all-inclusive group ranging from budding young actors to our more senior members and encourage all to take part both on stage and behind the scenes.
We stage two productions a year, one at the end of January and one in April/May. Rehearsals are held on Mondays and Fridays in the village hall. Anyone is welcome from the village or surrounding area whom have an interest in performing or working on productions to come and participate.
Productions include all types of theatre including plays, musicals, comedies and pantomimes. We pride ourselves in trying more challenging productions on our small stage, past productions have included "Cabaret", "A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum", "The Railway Children, the Musical", "Dancing at Lughnasa" and "The Thirty Nine Steps".
At the 2012 AGM it was decided it was time for a name change for the group.
We are now known as Hyde Heath Theatre Company and will continue to present new and interesting shows for all tastes. The Company is always evolving and thanks to the success of recent productions are able to invest in new equipment and facilities to raise production standards.
The Village Hall is a wonderful venue with a unique atmosphere and our Theatre Company provides local entertainment as part of the many varied social events held there during the year. During our shows, interval complimentary refreshments are provided.
The Plough public house and restaurant situated next to the village hall can provide pre- show drinks and meals.
