In 2019, The Dean Theatre Company was founded when a group of individuals decided to turn their shared interests into an official Theatre Group. After a couple of quick meetings, we were on our way to creating something extraordinary. We are a now a rapidly growing amateur theatre company based in the Forest of Dean.

Our aim is to bring high quality amateur theatre to our local community in the beautiful Forest of Dean. We also want to bring like minded people together to promote our love of all things theatre.

The Dean Theatre Company is affiliated with the National Operatic & Dramatic Association (NODA).

NODA is the national body that represents amateur theatre and was founded in 1899 by amateur societies for the purpose of bringing together members of amateur operatic and dramatic groups. This is to support and inspire amateur theatre, provide a range of opportunities for people to develop their skills and enjoy taking part at all levels.

Their vision is that amateur theatre is successful and sustainable.

Today, the Association has around 2,300 affiliated societies and over 2,500 individual members throughout the UK and Northern Ireland. It is the only organisation of its kind devoted exclusively to the amateur stage, and is entirely self supporting.
