Darland Community Theatre is an amateur dramatic, community theatre group based between Wrexham and Chester. We perform twice a year on the stage at Darland School in Rossett LL12 0DL, hence the name; usually we put on a play in the spring, around March/April as well as in late Autumn/early Winter in October/November.

Community theatre for Wrexham and Chester
We have performed many different types of plays including, drama, mystery, whodunnit’s and comedy. Our performances are very well supported by our audience and we run each play for three evenings, Thursday, Friday, and Saturday. Although this is community theatre, tickets sell fast for each of our plays and the feedback we receive is very gratifying. We have a regular audience who come to see every play but also new people discover us each time we perform. Our plays are suitable for a family audience so anyone is welcome.

If you’d like to see a play read on
Tickets for our plays cost £6 and can be bought from the ‘buy tickets’ links on this site or by contacting us using the contact form. Each ticket also entitles you to interval refreshments and a glass of wine or soft drink. Additional drinks are also available to purchases before curtain up and during the interval.

We are always looking for new members
If you’re interested in amateur, community theatre or you’ve every fancied having a go at acting then we’d love to hear from you. We are not expecting Oscar-worthy talent, just an enthusiasm and a willingness to have a go. Younger members (ideally 18+) would be very welcome as it would allow us to perform a more varied selection of plays.

A bit more about the community theatre society
We are a non-profit organisation so any funds raised through tickets sales goes back into the coffers of the theatre group to pay for equipment and set builds etc. We also regularly donate to the Darland School funds and other local charities and organisations.

Our Next Play

Our next play, a comedy by Eric Chappell has been chosen!

Vincent, a professional suicide merchant has been summoned by Walter Bryce but he soon becomes confused as to who his potion is intended for!  Several attempts to do away with various characters result in multiple poisonings of a rubber plant. Will anyone actually drink the potion?
