The Chandeliers Drama Group is one of the oldest in Maidstone having had it's first production in 1961. We consider ourselves a Bearsted group, as we rehearse in Bearsted and many of our members live around the area, although we
currently perform in a variety of locations in the Maidstone area.
We aim to put on at least three shows a year and these will either be comedies, straight drama or musicals. In addition we have recently formed a Concert party which has already given some charity concerts, with one in rehearsal and is seen by us as a way of attracting new members who are musically inclined, which forms a strong base for being able to put on quality musical productions in the future.
The group enters two festivals each year, The Kent Drama Association Full Length Play Festival and the Duncan Rand One Act Play Festival.
Apart from performing on stage, we also have a good social calendar including a yearly Quiz night and car treasure hunt, we take part in Bearsted carnival, we help to raise funds for charities and we have our own award ceremony at our Annual General meeting.
So to summarise we are a friendly group of people, from all walks of life, all with different skills, who enjoy the thrill of putting on a good show.
