Shiplake and Dunsden Dramatic Organisation

SHADDO website

In 1999, a local group entitled MAD (Millenium Amateur Dramatics) got together for the first time to produce Aladdin in Shiplake College's Tithe Barn in aid of the Shiplake and Dunsden Parish appeal.

Following the success of the venture, the group reinvented itself as SHADDO (Shiplake and Dunsden Dramatic Organisation) and decided to produce a further pantomime. The proceeds were to be ploughed back into the local village venue, Shiplake Memorial Hall, with the aim of restoring the vestiges of a local theatre to the village, following the untimely demise of the Shiplake Players some three decades ago.

The annual pantomome is an experience we would love to share with anyone out there who fancies joining us – you don‘t need to be able to act! Perhaps you fancy set design, playing music, helping with wardrobe, prompt, scenery shifting, sourcing props, selling tickets, staffing the bar, applying make-up or any of the other vital roles which come together to create a community amdram society.  Please don’t be shy – all ages are welcome, so bring your talent to SHADDO and see how much fun you can have – we’d love to have you on board!

If you are interested in getting involved with SHADDO, please contact Pip Collings on 07799 646675.
