We are a group of enthusiastic amateurs who met when performing in 'Promised Land', a highly successful community opera project which was written, composed and directed by professionals. Promised Land was performed at the Marlowe Theatre as part of the 2006 Canterbury Festival.
It was such a fantastic experience that we decided we would like to continue to perform more novel theatrical works. And because we all live in Kent, we decided that our future works would have Kentish themes. We use and enjoy professional support wherever possible.
We aim to produce innovative musical works which have been written specially for us, often by members of the Company. We would like to involve ourselves with the Kent community and we intend to encourage new writing and performing talent by forming links with universities, colleges, theatres and other local venues.
Several of our productions have been performed as part of the Canterbury Festival fringe.
Alongside our productions, we run a variety of musical and theatrical workshops as well as social and fundraising activities.
We often take our musical performance to the residents of care homes in East Kent.
We have benefited from funding from the Lottery “Awards for All” and the Canterbury Arts Council.
