Auditions for our March 2017 play


Auditions will be held on Wednesday 26th October 2016 at Ferring Village Hall.

Prescription for Murder

In the seemingly quiet town of Bere Knighton there is never a dull moment for Dr. Richard Forth.  Not only does he have a hectic work schedule and an awkward friendship with his ex-girlfriend, but his wife, Barbara, is constantly ill and nobody knows what is wrong with her.  When Eric Dawson, a stranger, claims to have known Richard’s second fiancee – a woman richard claims does not exist – Barbara’s health worsens and she isn’t the only one.  With bad luck spreading almost as quickly as bad news, it seems somebody is out to kill Barbara, and anyone else who gets in their way.
The characters comprise of 3 male and 4 females.

Sad News


It is with a sad heart that I have to inform you of the death of our well loved chairman, Derek Bell.
Some of you will already be aware of this news through other channels but I felt you should all know.
Derek was not only our chairman but he was FADS in every way.  He was very heavily involved in our productions.  In latter years he took on our lighting and sound but it was not so very long ago you would have also seen him on stage in our productions.  Only his failing health in recent months has kept him away. However most of you know Derek as the cheery little man in evening suit welcoming you to our productions and social events.
Derek was one of life’s true gentleman who will be very sadly missed.
We also lost another long serving member, John Treasure. He was, for many years, our technical manager and also helped with set build. In recent years he has supported all of our productions and was made a life member.
Our condolences to both sets of families and friends.
Alan Fryar
