Live streaming event!

While it breaks our hearts not to be able to put on a show this year we'll do the next best thing! We'll be streaming last year's panto, Cinderella by Joshua Clarke & Lewis Clarke, 23rd January @ 2pm, YouTube, with the performance staying online until the 30th. Let's hope this madness comes to end sooner rather than later when we can get back to entertaining you wonderful people. Watch this space for a link to the live stream or subscribe to our YouTube channel (link below) - the performance will be in the "Cinderella" playlist. Stay safe everyone and we hope to see you all again really soon.

2021 show postponed

It is with immense sadness that we have to announce the postponement of our 2021 show, Sleeping Beauty. We could cry. In fact we are. It was a horrifically hard decision to make, but we have to consider the health and safety of all the players and back-stage crew and of course, our fabulous audience. We'll be back bigger and better than ever next year, with auditions and rehearsals starting September 2021. Keep safe and we'll see you all again soon. Love & hugs, All at VPS.

AGM 2020

Our Annual General Meeting will be held on the 25th of February at 19.30 @ The Hub. All are welcome to attend but only members can vote. See you there!

Thank you!

So with a happy sadness, our show comes to end. The cast and crew have had the best time ever, entertaining you, our amazing audience. The incredible feedback has been overwhelming. The sellout shows mindblowing. We can't thank you Verwoodians - and those who travelled from even farther afield (Wales in once instance!) - enough. Without you there would be no show and we wouldn't be having the time of our lives. Our heartfelt thanks, truly. See you next year!

2 days to go!

Curtains up in two days! Just a few more tickets available this Saturday. Next Saturday is pretty much sold out. Weekdays good availability. See you there!

The show must go on!

Thank you to everyone who attended this year's show. Despite an outbreak of the plague striking down most of the cast members and crew, we all battled through and that's largely down to the tremendous support afforded to us by you, the incredible audience members. So thank you. Your generosity also knows no bounds, raising over £1,400 for Dorset & Somerset Air Ambulance - amazing.

For those that are interested our annual general meeting is being held at The Hub on Tuesday 27th February @ 19.30. Anyone is welcome to attend but only members are able to vote.

Thanks again to all of you - see you all again next year!
