Centenary Commemoration of World War I: In November, Woolpit Drama Club will be putting on a production of the remarkable and very moving play Oh! What a Lovely War to mark the one hundredth anniversary of the start of World War I. Performance dates will be on 20th, 21st, and 22nd November. We will be sending out further details of audition dates in the near future. The play has a large cast and there should be parts for many members with the possibility of doubling, something to test mettle of any actor.

Dear Woolpit Drama Club,
I have recently noticed that your performance of my one act play, “Leaving Tommy” was well received, and that two of your actors were nominated for awards. May I pass on my thanks for choosing this particular play and my personal congratulations to both Scott Walker & Gareth Hatton.
Kind regards & all best wishes for your future productions. Mark Seaman
