Welcome to the website of Tread the Boards Theatre Group, now established as a leading amateur drama group in Milton Keynes with a proud 30 year history.
Tread the Boards (TTB) was founded in Newport Pagnell, Bucks, in 1986. We are now a Registered Charity, but we started out as a group associated with the local Adult Education Centre and based in Ousedale School's Drama Studio. Our first production was Alan Ayckbourn's "Bedroom Farce". Over the next couple of years we put on a variety of shows (see our Past Productions page), built a regular audience and developed to the point where we felt that we could achieve more as a group independent of Adult Education. We now perform across Milton Keynes.
In this site you will find a potted history of TTB, details of our future productions and how to book for them, as well as a list of our productions over the past 30 years.
We have always prided ourselves on being a friendly, open group that does not tolerate the cliques so often found in organisations. We genuinely welcome new members and try to actively develop their skills whether onstage or back stage. If you fancy treading the boards yourself, have a look at our Membership page for full details.
We produce an occasional Newsletter to keep supporters up to date with our activities. If you would like to sign up, there is a form at the bottom of this page.
We hope that you find this site interesting; if you have any inquiries, please use the form on our Contact page.
Our next production, Geoff Bamber's fine farce, Reading Between The Lines, is now in rehearsal and we are looking forward to presenting it at The Chrysalis Theatre in April.
When Professor Andrew Stokes arrives at his new home in a small village he has in mind an easy and peaceful life - but with his ambitious wife organising a Literary Festival and hosting a highly strung romantic novelist his life is about to become anything but peaceful. Soon the home in the country is as bustling as city life and the arrival of an old chum with an eye for the ladies is the final straw.
Laugh out loud comedy delivered by Tread the Boards.
Adapted by Tom Smith from the novella by Charles Dickens
Directed by Sarah Marshall
