"It may be in the heart of Midsomer Murders country, but this likeable Buckinghamshire village must be the last place in the country you would expect to get a knife in the back. Everybody here is nice. There are so many communal activities — church fetes, concerts, fun runs, am-dram productions, bridge clubs, pub quizzes — that there genuinely is something for everyone. Even the massed cohorts of golden retrievers seem to be smiling. " The Telegraph

A thriving Amateur Dramatics group helps lift the "happiness quotient" in a village and its surroundings. Last year the Haddenham Players put on two tremendous productions — lots of fun and hard work — but to rather disappointing audience sizes. We need to make a bigger bang — and to do that we need you. There aren't enough willing volunteers to make this a really thriving group; we have heaps of ideas and lots of great plans for events, socials and visits to theatres.

So we are asking for your help. We are in need of committee members who can spare an hour or two each month; supporters who can promote what we do, workers who would like to get involved in building sets and helping with costumes and so much more.

If this is the 'Heart of Midsomer' lets have all you thespians, comedians, singers, dressers-up and make-up folk — and lets make a lot of fun! Let's have the joiners, electricians and painters who can build us a great setting. Lets have a community push and make this an AmDram group to be proud of.

All we need is your email address for now, to our secretary Tom Chisholm at thomas1920@btinternet.com and we will do the rest. Please indicate your area of interest and we will be "relaunching" ourselves in April with a big bang — and you'll be the first to know.
