CORONAVIRUS: currently, all theatres and related venues are closed. Shows are either being cancelled, postponed or rescheduled and we are trying to keep up with all the changes. There are currently few changes after May 2020 and many shows that were due for April have been pushed back towards the end of Autumn. Pantomimes are looking like a safe bet at the moment ;-)
Between baby yoga, the PTA and the local Scouts, Great Osterley North Amateur Dramatic Society - or GONADS, as chairwoman Honoria likes them to be known - reign supreme over the village hall. Or at least, they did, until the arrivals of a new contender for leading lady and a professional director throw their production of musical classic The Golden Empress into chaos. Cast, crew and committee are forced to explore friendship, theatre and community with hilarious results, but with most of the drama taking place off the stage, will The Golden Empress ever make it to opening night? Performers Tom Edden (Max), Laura Pitt Pulford (Rose), Debbie Chazen (Elaine), Denise Hodgkiss (Diana), Jordan Lee Davies (Ian), Thea Collings (Angela), Wendy Ferguson (Honoria).
