Society to celebrate its 40th anniversary
by Ron Ellis

MAWDESLEY Amateur Dramatics Society is this year celebrating its 40 year anniversary.

The society was formed in the early 1970s by members of the Mawdesley WI shortly after the opening of the new Mawdesley Village Hall.

MADS will be performing their annual play in June in the village hall and this year’s play is the comedy What I Did At School Today by John Mee.

The action takes place in the fictitious Lloyd George Junior & Infants School where a new supply teacher has just arrived. To the delight of all the staff the new teacher is a male supply teacher called Dan (played by Adrian Barradell) who soon finds himself the centre of everyone’s attention including the scheming headmaster Clive Beasley (Finlay Robertson), the flirtatious Liz (Debbie Wells) whose attempts at seduction leave little to the imagination, a timid school secretary (Nicky Wolstenholme), the naïve Jenny (Lynsey Robertson) as well as Maxine (Bridgett Welch) the no-nonsense and down to earth caretaker.

To Dan’s delight an old flame from university Kate Jenkins (Emma Meen) is also teaching at the school.

As Dan and Kate endeavour to rekindle their love without the gossipy staff and pupils discovering their secret, the headmaster sets one of the pupils Emma the task of writing a story while he busies himself attempting to fleece two prospective new parents out of their money. But what will her story about what she did at school today contain and why is Kate so desperate to prevent the story being seen?

The play will be performed on June 19, 20 and 21 at 7:30pm in the village hall with a licenced bar open for the Friday and Saturday night shows. Tickets are £8 each and can be purchased from Londis on new Street or by contacting MADS at:

(The play contains some mild adult comedy material and is not suitable for young children.)
