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.

Our December Production .....

Alice's Wonderland Adventure

Mad Hatter

Those weird and wonderful tales of Alice from the pen of Lewis Carroll have been lovingly and inventively brought to the stage by director and writer Mike Ames and the team from Tread the Boards. The result is a spectacle of the favourite characters including The Cheshire Cat, March Hare, White Rabbit, Red Queen and the totally bonkers Mad Hatter.

Ideal for all aged 6+, this winter production brings the theatre group back to Newport Pagnell - its original home when founded more than 30 years ago. We believe the show will be particularly appealing to children aged 6+, their Mums, Dads, Grans, Grandpas...
