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 hope that you find this site interesting; if you have any inquiries, please use the form on our Contact page.

TTB's Special Welcome Evening

Monday July 9 - make space in your diary for our special evening of welcome and introduction!

We're hosting a special evening for those of you who have often thought about joining a drama group but never quite got around to it.

Tread the Boards has a long-established reputation for helping novice performers to make the first forays into acting. We provide much help and encouragement so don't be shy - pop in and see us at Wavendon Gate Pavilion (see the map below)  between 8pm and 9.30pm on Monday July 9 and we'll be able to tell you all about what is involved and what we have coming up for the rest of the year.

And don't forget - we are always looking for people with back-stage skills too. So do call in if you would like to develop techniques with theatrical costume, make-up, sound, light, carpentry, stage management or promotional activities. You'll find the activities rewarding and make new friends along the way.

We'll have some refreshments on hand - so if you let us know you are coming that's helpful but by no means a requirement.

You can contact us through our Contact page.

Remember you can also find us on Facebook.
