About Us

Hitchin Thespians offers a unique opportunity to perform in a range of shows and concerts. Our membership is friendly, our performance standards are high, and our repertoire is varied. Unusually for an amateur operatic society, we perform classical concerts as well as shows. In addition, we own our rehearsal and performing venue, Woodside Hall, and have a thriving youth section, Young Thespians, for ages 8-16.

Musical Theatre and Concerts

Whatever your musical tastes or skills, there will be a Hitchin Thespians production to match. We take on everything from the well-loved classics (Oliver!) through the modern (Made in Dagenham) to recent blockbusters (Sister Act). Whether you yearn to display your fancy footwork in a toe-tapping dance show (Anything Goes), give your vocal chords a workout (HMS Pinafore; Fauré’s Requiem) or lead the audience in a rousing version of Ding Dong Merrily (pretty much every Christmas since 1991), we have something you'll enjoy. You can find out more by browsing our list of Past Productions and Past Concerts.

The unique set-up of Hitchin Thespians allows members to experience an unrivalled variety of music. Some members choose to participate in all performances, others prefer to stick with one style, but once you are a vocal member the choice is yours and you will have the opportunity to potentially be part of all our concerts and shows.

On-stage or off-stage – or better still, both!

We have various productions a year currently comprising a Spring show, a Summer concert, and the ever-popular Christmas Special. Members are encouraged to get involved with everything we do - when you're not on-stage there are plenty of activities off-stage to keep you busy. Whether you are a whizz on the lighting board, want to help out in wardrobe or just enjoy painting scenery, we want to hear from you!

Sounds great – what next?

Get in touch at secretary@hitchinthespians.org.uk for a friendly welcome and further details. We look forward to hearing from you!

(By the way, did we mention the fact that we frequently win awards from our local NODA group, have commissioned our own pieces, have performed world premieres, have taken a show to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival and host fund-raising concerts organised by our members?).

 


Young Thespians

Our youth group is fairly new. It has quickly proved to be another very successful feature of Thespians. Please take a look at their page.

Social Events

Rehearsals, concerts and shows are all social events in themselves. In addition to that a member of Thespians can also attend the numerous social events through the year - quiz nights, barbeques, treasure hunts, barn dances… to name but a few.

Despite being very busy with Thespian events alone our rehearsal venue, Woodside Hall, is available for bookings. There are a number of clubs and societies that meet in our hall on a regular basis. In addition the hall can be hired for parties and weddings. We regret that the hall is not available for 18th birthday parties.
The photographs below show what the hall is like when it is decorated for a function - click on the pictures to see larger ones. For further information see our contacts page.
