We hope you will find our website interesting and informative. There are details of our 100 plus year history, previous productions, forthcoming shows and how to contact us. We always warmly welcome new members who wish to take part in our shows, whether as singers, dancers, actors, or all three!

 If, however, you don't want to be on stage, but would like to be involved, there are hundreds of jobs to be done behind the scenes. We often build and paint our own sets so if you're a budding carpenter, painter or just good with your hands, or if prefer helping with costumes or organising publicity, in fact, whatever your talent, we can make use of it!

A warm welcome and one hundred friends await you! Alternatively, to keep in touch with what we're up to, and to be among the first to know what's coming up, why not become a Friend? You'll receive priority booking for all our productions and our bi-monthly newsletter, "Just A Minim". Go to our Contact Us page for details.

.....marked our Centenary and proved a very special year for us. North Norfolk News 3/4/14

We enjoyed three terrific and acclaimed productions: The Elephant Man in February, our record breaking musical Oliver! in May and the very popular Flint Street Nativity in October. 

We also raised over £3200 for charity, taken part in both Cromer and Sheringham Carnivals, as well as winning the most voted for boat in the Crab and Lobster Festival Bootiful Boat Trail. We also marked our proud history by unveiling plaques celebrating our Centenary and our long association at the Sheringham Little Theatre and Cromer Pier Pavilion Theatre. Click here for a few of our Centenary photos.

....proved to be another great year with 3 very different productions - Our February play was the compelling and thought-provoking Diary of Anne Frank at Sheringham Little Theatre, (read the review here!Our Whitsun holiday week musical was the Manilow favourite, Copacabana, with music, passion and show girls galore strutting their stuff at the Cromer Pier Pavilion Theatre. £2288 was raised for the Norwich and Waveney branch of the Motor Neurone Disease Association.

We rounded off 2015 with comedy back at the Little Theatre again in October with The Birds, The Bees and Therapy, a hilarious comedy by Jack Williams. We were thrilled to be joined by the writer who loved it! Click here for details and the review!


.....kicked off with packed houses for our hugely well received Little Theatre production of The Vicar of Dibley back in February.

And in May at the Pier Pavilion Theatre, Cromer, we enjoyed a hugely successful run of Calamity Jane. Read the review here. Our generous audiences donated £2760.25 by way of bucket collections for our chosen charity Walking with the Wounded, and to this figure, CSODS added a further £500 making a grand total of £3260.25. 

Calamity Jane May/June 2016

And in October, we presented a compelling and haunting drama, Bracken Moor, back at the Sheringham Little Theatre, nominated for Best Play in NODA East Region 5.

2017 already proving to be another successful and exciting year for us.

In February we presented The Ladykillers at the Little Theatre to full houses, and you'll find photos in our gallery.

Towards the end of May we present the musical, Made in Dagenham at the Cromer Pier Pavilion, and rehearsals are in full swing. More details on our Future Productions pages.

And in October, we are thrilled to welcome back those Farndale ladies to Sheringham Little Theatre in "We Found Love and an Exquisite Set of Porcelain Figures Aboard the SS Farndale Avenue". Chaos returns so one not to miss!

We do hope you can come along to one or more of these productions.
