We've booked a stall for the event that marks the switching on of the Newport Pagnell Christmas lights. This will be on November 24 and we'll have leaflets about the group, tickets for the latest show AND a tombola style game for all with some fun prizes.  Look out for our stall in the High Street from 9.30am to 5.30pm - we'll have some colourful characters in costume so should be easy to spot.

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 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, (or use the form on the right), and you can also find us on Facebook.

Tread the Boards latest performance: a Murder Mystery evening at Longueville Hall.

This original work was based in 1920's Chicago soon after the St. Valentine’s Day massacre. This marked two firsts for Tread the Boards; performing at Longueville Hall and presenting a piece of dinner theatre.

The audience


The show was sold out with the audience entering into the spirit of the evening by dressing in period costume, greatly adding to the nightclub atmosphere.The audience ably assisted Detective O’Malley and Officer Wright with their enquiries.

Tread the Boards member Jenny Tygrys was delighted to bring back £90 for group funds as the result of a series of quizzes held in the run up to Christmas at the Jalori Restaurant in Woburn Sands.

Jenny Abdul HaiAt the latest quiz owner Abdul Hai was able to present five MK charities with the proceeds and as Jenny was present as a competitor along with two of her sons she was able to receive the money on behalf of the group. (pictured right.)

A number of our members are keen quizzers and fielded teams at some of the events which combine a hearty Indian meal, raffle draw and the 70-question quiz on the second Tuesday each month. Other beneficiaries included Carers MK and Milton Keynes Museum.

"It was a bonus to receive the money on the night and the group will put it to good use," said Jenny who has appeared in many TTB productions, designed sets and directed.


The quizzes continue for 2018.
