Each workshop has a different theme, and are usually led by experienced workshop leaders or interested members of the group. Occasionally we have visiting workshop leaders to bring in different skills. Any member of Network is also welcome to lead workshops, following discussing their plans with the group and workshop organisers.

Members take it in turns to run workshops, on a range of practical skills, drama games and exercises, themes and plays. For information call 0151 733 9606.

We also have a play reading group who meet regularly to discuss ideas for new plays, on a separate evening to the workshops.

The start time is 7pm, running until 9pm.

Since we will now need to pay venue hire, we have agreed to charge �1.00 per person per workshop. Those who can afford to pay more are invited to do so.We can make special arrangements for those who cannot afford this.

Sat 14 January - Dick Whittington Pantomime - a Woolton Drama Group production

Woolton Drama Group returns to the village this January with a fantastic, funny and imaginative version of the pantomime classic, Dick Whittington. First believed to have been performed in 1606, writer and director Duncan Young has taken the much-loved, well-known story of a downtrodden boy hoping to find streets paved with gold, and given it a hilarious, modern-day twist which sees Dick travel from Liverpool to London and then on to the isle of Fandango. Always guaranteed to provide quality, memorable performances, Woolton Drama Group’s production of Dick Whittington will have special significance to the cast and crew, with it marking the return of the group to its home village. All six performances take place in St James’ Church Hall, Woolton, over two weekends, giving everyone a chance to see how the plucky, young lad fares on his travels. Duncan commented: “We are all thrilled to be back on home turf; there is a renewed energy among us all and this promises to be one of the best productions we have done. Welcome in the New Year with us, have a bit of fun and banish those January blues with our family friendly show. We’d like to thank St James’ Church for accommodating us and making our return to Woolton possible after a 20-year break. Their support is much appreciated and we hope, with this and future productions, to do them and the people of Woolton proud.” *11am Saturday 14 January is an autism friendly performance – all tickets for this performance only are £4. All other tickets: early bird online booking £6 adults, £4 children. (£7 and £5 on the door). Early bird family ticket is £20 and allows entry for four.
