CADS was started in 1991 by Sally and Peter Harper and has grown from strength to strength.
Since CADS was started, we have enjoyed performing a wide variety of plays to packed houses. Productions have ranged from serious drama to murder mystery and comedies. One thing they have all had in common has been the quality of the acting and superb sets, which have been commented on many times!
Rehearsals and shows always take place at St Peter's Hall in Cranbourne, Winkfield.
Apart from encouraging new members to get involved on or off stage we are always looking for and keen to support anyone who wants to try their hand at directing. We work together very much as a team and there will always be someone there to help you, should the need arise. We pride ourselves in being a very open and welcoming group and new members often comment on how quickly they felt included.
Donations to charity
Each year if there is a surplus, then donations are made to local charities such as: Cruse Bereavement Care, The Samaritans, PACT, THROB, Rosie’s Rainbow, St. Peter's Church Cranbourne, (for renovations after the fire) etc. Donations have also been made to Ascot Day Centre, Ascot Area Alzheimer's Support Group, Paul's Trust and local Scouts. We made a donation from our 2018 production 'Men At Arms' to Alzheimer's Research UK. From our production, 'When We Are Married' in October 2018, we made donations to: Alexander Devine Children's Hospice Service, Maidenhead and also to Pilgrim's Hearts Trust (a charity providing hot meals and safe sleeping places in local churches for homeless people in the Bracknell area, between December and March).
