About Us

In 1977 West Wight Drama Group and Thespians joined to create Curtain Up Amateur Dramatic Society, since then, Curtain Up have staged over 100 productions at venues across West Wight, including Totland Church Hall, Freshwater Parish Hall and Freshwater Memorial Hall.

Over the past forty years Curtain Up have staged a number of full-scale musicals, revue evenings, murder mysteries, full length and one act plays. More recently we have staged two productions a year, raising funds for local charities and we hope to increase the number of performances this year.

We have a friendly and lively membership of about 20 members, but are hoping to recruit more. A warm and friendly welcome awaits all potential members who wish to get involved in every capacity, both on and off stage. As well as performers, we particularly welcome anyone who can help build sets, help with costumes, be part of our backstage crew and front of house team and those who would like to produce and direct future productions.

Membership is currently £10 per year.

Members must be over 16.
