Canterbury Players Amateur Dramatic Society, originated in Davyhulme, Greater Manchester, in 1949 and is affiliated to Trafford Arts Association and the National Operatic And Drama Association.
We started out as a parent-teacher group, presenting plays on stage in the hall at Canterbury Road Junior School in Davyhulme, and occasionally at other locations in the area for other events such as play readings.
Since March 2007 our home has been the stage at the Methodist church hall on Brook Road, Flixton, where we present comedies, straight dramas, farces, thrillers and murder mysteries. Performances normally run for 4 nights ending on a Saturday, and we also hold social events and play readings at various other venues in the area.
We're a mixed age group and welcome new members, whether onstage or doing the many backstage activities needed to stage a show. Don't worry if you don't know what's involved; we'll give you training where necessary and full support. It's a great way to get out of the house, learn new skills, and meet new friends. Join us and be part of our next production.
Thank you to these local businesses who have supported us in our forthcoming or previous production. Their adverts in our programme are shown here in alphabetical order.
