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. 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.

Our next play – Cheshire Cats by Gail Young
Gail lives locally and this acclaimed comedy was premiered close to her Cheshire home, by Guilden Sutton Players in 2005.  Follow the Cheshire Cats team (Hilary, Siobhan, Vicky, Yvonne and Maggie) as they attempt to fundraise for breast cancer by walking 13 miles across the city as part of the London Moonwalk. Tickets cost £6, the price includes a drink and interval refreshments. 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.

Part of the Clwyd Community Theatre Association (CCTA) We were thrilled to be part of the Festival of One Act Plays in Spring 2018 and Spring 2019 in the Emlyn Williams Theatre, Theatre Clwyd.  It was very exciting for us to see a little into the world of professional theatre, long may it continue!

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.
