"Murder in Little Grimley"

"Murder in Little Grimley", is the sixth play in the hugely popular Little Grimley series, by David Tristram, which follows the antic of a hapless Amateur Dramatic Society desperate for audiences. Anxious to cash in on the public's appetite for detective dramas, the Chairman Gordon writes a whodunnit...

It had to happen sometime. Two murder mysteries in one season. No crime fatigue in our audiences apparently...

Going Postal by Terry Pratchett - cast = Nov 2016

"We act a bit, sing a bit and move dodging all the furniture a lot. We'd like to involve some more members which would give us a wider choice of plays to put on for our audience"

   2016 November

"Going Postal"

Our third Terry Pratchett play. Everyone was involved, some several times. Costumes, mail-sacks, weapons a plenty.

"It's not just murder mysteries and comedies. We like a change too. Plays from Terry Pratchett books are fun to do but hard work. OOK! We do plays by local Ampthill authors too."

WP Ruby (40Yr) Revue - cast = Apr 2016

"After 45 years as a group we've seen lots of changes. We have only repeated one show so far - 20th century values don't always fit todays audience. We're out seeking new plays."

Our 40th anniversary. Much singing and reviving favourite sketches from the past portfolio of materiaL...
