Welcome to the Faringdon Dramatic Society's Website
We hope that you will come and enjoy our productions. We have been entertaining the local community for over half a century and the standard of acting has often been compared to that seen at a professional theatre. The society has been the proud winner of many county and national awards. We are also often complimented on the excellent quality of the stage set, make-up and costumes used in our productions. You may be surprised to hear that all are created specially 'from scratch' for each production by the hard working 'behind the scenes' members of our society.

What has FDS ever done for us?
We are always pleased to welcome new members. As well as acting and directing there are always opportunities to help with set building, front of house, and much more. No experience is necessary. Just come along to a reading or audition and introduce yourself, whether you want to be in a play or just help back stage. As a member of Faringdon Dramatic Society you can ... read more.
We are always looking for suggestions from members for play readings and offers to direct plays of your own choice. Plenty of help is always available if you haven't directed before. Please contact us with your ideas.
Faringdon Dramatic Society currently have an exchange partnership with the Garrison Little Theatre in Fort Erie, Ontario, Canada
Exclusive Print Offer
When we came back from Canada, Rey Baecher gave us 10 prints of a picture of The Tithe Barn at Little Coxwell, which he has done from a photograph. Rey is a very talented artist and generously, he wants us to sell the prints and use the profits for FDS. The attached is a photo of the picture, which is about 14” x 12” in size, portrait style and comes unframed. Would anyone like to buy a print at the cost of £12.00 (FDS members £8.00)? Please contact us if you are interested.
