Welcome to Tread the Boards

Our next production in August 2020 is A Fete Worse Than Death to be performed in Woburn Sands. Click through for details and to book.

This follows hot on the heels of our Queens Jubilee tribute “Happy and Glorious”, a play set in the local area charting the marriage of Princess Elizabeth to Philip Mountbatten and her accession to the throne in 1953. We staged this in both Wavendon Gate and Old Stratford in the Spring


In December it will be panto time! Oh yes it will. It is a large cast show and we will need plenty of people on and off the stage to make it happen. If interested then come along to a TTB rehearsal night – Mondays from 7.30pm at Wavendon Gate Pavilion (except Bank Holidays) and meet the current group members.

Who we are?

Who we are?

Most recently we have been resourceful, flexible and tenacious!

Covid 19 devastated the events industry and community theatre groups like ours were no less affected. Plans for shows had to be mothballed as we had to cancel all rehearsals and reflect on what to do next.

Within a week we had re-arranged our traditional Monday evening face-to-face activities and moved them on-line. Quickly we delivered workshops, entertainment sessions and quizzes and then began to develop our own projects for filming. You can see some of the results – our Gigglebox episode and a selection of monologues – here on the website.

But even when we could get back to meeting in person we had to abandon plans for our big production Treasure Island – a large cast pantomime to be delivered in collaboration with another local theatre group. Keeping everyone well was a priority and we made the difficult decision to postpone and deliver an alternative – Rats!

Rats! was a potted panto created in-house in just a week.

It was to be delivered with two duplicate casts thereby using all the acting talent keen to perform after so long away from the stage. This in turn meant we could stage 10 shows and keep the audience socially distanced.

The Mayor attended opening night, we had many glowing reviews for offering something so different and we get to offer up Treasure Island for another Christmas. We are proud to have achieved something against a backdrop of challenge and frustration.

We are TTB.
