CADS was founded in April 2013 and operates as a not-for-profit organisation based in and around the local community of Chudleigh.

Our objectives have been simply defined as:

  • To promote all forms of dramatic art across all sections of the local community.
  • To assist in making the pursuit of dramatic art a means of education, self-expression, and social amenity.

To achieve this, our membership reflects all sections of the local community and is drawn from a wide range of age groups, currently covering from five to seventy-five.

If you would enjoy being involved with an enthusiastic and friendly group of ‘gifted amateurs’ just go to our ‘Contact us‘ page and join in the fun. If acting is not your thing there are many jobs back-stage dealing with sound, lighting, and scenery design/ creation along with all the other things that ‘go bump in the night’ with a local production.

As a member you can also develop your dramatic skills at the various workshops we hold throughout the year which cover acting, directing, lighting and all other aspects of production.
