No Drama Theatre biannual Shindig is coming our way. On Saturday 3rd of November, we will gather in The Pearse Centre for an evening of short pieces written, directed and/or performed by our members.

Only a short few weeks from now and we are giving you a chance to get your piece, cast, and crew ready for this showcase night.

For those of you who have never had the pleasure, the shindig is your chance to get up on stage and act in a scripted (or improvised) piece in front of a welcoming audience as part of a collection of pieces from members. Ask anyone who has performed in one before and they will tell you how much fun it is!

To secure your spot, get in touch with us at and tell us your brilliant idea or how you would like to partake, acting, directing or helping out backstage.

Please Note: all written submission must be in via email by no later than Friday 19th October for consideration of a place in the Shindig.
