Moulton Drama Group is a registered Charity No 51565
In 1981, 40 enthusiastic people attended a public meeting at Moulton Village Hall, eager to set up a drama group. Just five months later, Moulton Drama group was established and our first play, Billy Liar, was successfully performed.
By 1984 we had won our first award and since then we have gone from strength to strength picking up many more awards along the way.
In 1991, for our tenth anniversary our member playwright Robert Meadows researched and wrote a piece especially for the group. Called ‘A Rough and Ready Lot’, this production was a milestone for MDG because it was seen by the then director of Tatton Park. He was so impressed that he asked Robert to write a play based on the history of Tatton Park and our subsequent production marked our first open air performance.
In 2006 we celebrated our silver jubilee with a year of special events and, for our 20th birthday in 2011, performed the specially written ‘Dawn of the Crows’.
We depend on the energy, goodwill and teamwork of our members to continue being able to put on successful plays and events to make it a success and we’re always looking for new members to join our team, whether behind the scenes, treading the boards or both!
MDG is a registered charity and is financed mainly by subscriptions from members and patrons and the sale of tickets and also from fund-raising events and grants from local arts organisations.
We have a committee of 9 ordinary members plus the Chairman, Hon Treasurer & Secretary who meet every month to ensure the group runs smoothly and smooth running of the group. They will also look at special occasions and anniversary dates for the group and see how these can be marked.
