Welcome to the Faringdon Dramatic Society's Website

Arthur's Adventure - Everyone had been frozen by Morgan when Merlin arrives.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.

And it isn't all about the acting! 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.
