Publicity Manager Dale Shaw looks back at the group’s history as they prepare to embark on their 100th production, the farce ‘See How They Run’
History of the Group
We’ve been bringing theatre to the local Bolsover community since 1981 – here are a selection of articles written by current and past members of the group about how Bolsover Drama Group formed and how it’s grown to become a thriving community of adults and youth members.
If you would like to share your story or you have any newspaper clippings, photographs, programmes or publicity material please get in touch with the group.
Bolsover Drama Group’s youth members have been involved in group productions since the group’s first musical, ‘The King and I’ in 1992, and as a result the group founded a youth section in 1996, originally catering for the group’s members aged between 8 and 16.
