New Members

Quarndon Amateur Dramatic Society, one of the oldest in the county, has been performing plays in The Village Hall since the end of the Second World War.

It is a small, friendly society which aims to put on two plays a year, in May and November. We rehearse twice a week, Tuesdays and Thursdays, at the Church Hall or sometimes in the back room of The Joiners Arms. There is also an active social programme both during the quiet summer period and also all year round (more details below). New members are always welcome in any capacity both on and offstage:

  • Directors
  • Producers
  • Stage Managers
  • Prompts
  • Props
  • Actors
  • Sound and lighting
  • Costume
  • Set Builders
  • Publicity & Marketing

How to Join

If you would like hear more about joining QUADS, please contact the Secretary, Sharon Hawkins on 07732 744 133 or email info@quarndonquads.co.uk


Please email the secretary at info@quarndonquads.co.uk if you have any questions or wish to be emailed about future auditions.

The audition is quite relaxed, the director usually asking people to read the various parts of an example play and go through a scene together. You don’t need to prepare anything beforehand.

If you can't get to the auditions, you are advised to email info@quarndonquads.co.uk so we know you are interested in being considered for a part.

Social Events

A number of social and fundraising events, such as a one act play which was successfully staged this summer, play readings, quizzes, a wine tasting evening and a walk in the Derbyshire countryside, all contribute to members keeping in touch outside rehearsal periods.
