Next Stagers & Marina Choir

Next Stagers & Marina Choir 2019-07-25T10:33:19+00:00

Next Stagers for Ages 50+

Designed to give members a chance to meet and discuss theatre and arts subjects, read plays and even rehearse and stage them. We are really keen to encourage members to take ownership of the group and to help develop it into something unique and exciting.

No previous theatre experience necessary and newcomers are always welcome!

Every Wednesday from 10:30am (First session is free and then £3 thereafter)

Next Stagers members will also have access to specially discounted tickets and workshops throughout the year.

The group staged their debut production in December 2018, with their own pantomime production named ‘Cinderfella’.


“I never ever thought I would be interested in Shakespeare and now I am totally fascinated by it – you are never too old to learn anything.” – Eileen Welham

“As a group we really think we can go places –  I love being a part of The Next Stagers.”– Arthur Harding

“There is no imperative to come every single week – the group is so welcoming – you can miss a week or two and be welcomed back with open arms.” – Bev Cadby

“The whole group is not just about acting – it is also about the friendships and camaraderie.” – Linda Howard




A new community singing group launched in October 2018. The Marina Choir will be a relaxed and informal group for people to come along and have a sing song. No experience is required, the group is open to all and we encourage anyone with even a passing interest to come along. The group is led by professional vocal coach Charlotte Polland and is intended for the members to help choose the future direction of the group.

The sessions will run from 19.00-20.30 every Monday evening at the Marina Theatre. The sessions will cost £3.50 with no obligation to attend every week.
