    I very much enjoyed the panto, and I miss it, and you all very much. Can't wait till the next one. Thanks to everyone who, as always, made a lowly Caversham dweller so welcome. I love the village atmosphere and community. Not to mention working with the many great Thespians.

    A HUGE THANK YOU to everyone who helped make Murder Weekend such a big success. It was a very enjoyable experience with a happy cast and crew. I received lots of positive comments while mingling with the audience. Hopefully, especially to those who had very little or no experience it left you wanting to do more!

How you can support WADS

WADS is a self-funded, not-for-profit organisation that is run by volunteers who share a passion for theatre – whether on-stage or working behind the scenes.

The Society does not presently receive any form of on-going financial support to subsidise running costs or to assist with the cost of staging productions. Instead, WADS relies on the ticket sales and programme sales from its strong following of loyal audience members from Woodcote and the surrounding areas to remain operationally viable.

We also run the Woodcote Coffee Shop twice a year to raise funds.
