Welcome to HADS

HADS (Horsell Amateur Dramatic Society) is the oldest drama group in the area, having been formed in 1922. Our purpose is to put on plays and similar forms of theatre for the public’s entertainment.

Twice a year we put on full-length plays at the Rhoda McGaw Theatre in Woking, as well as entering the Festival of One-Act Plays run by the Woking Drama Association at the same venue and also the Spelthorne & Runnymede Drama Festival.

In addition, we occasionally stage performances in Horsell Village Hall, close to Woking centre, where we hold regular play readings open both to all members and the curious alike.


HADS next production will be Terry Pratchett’s WYRD SISTERS, adapted by Stephen Briggs and auditions for all parts are on August 28th (Sunday, from 1pm to 5pm at Horsell Village Hall), September 1st and September 5th, both from 8pm to 10pm at Horsell Village Hall.

The Audition form is HERE and a synopsis of the play is HERE.

The next HADS Production will be at The Rhoda McGaw Theatre on December 8th, 9th & 10th 2016.
