Rehearsals are now in full swing for Proscenophobia, our next production.  It will be staged from June 1st to 4th 2022 at the Queen's Hall, Cuckfield, NOT in May as previously stated.


The 2019 CDS production of 'Stepping Out' won a NODA Drama Accolade of Excellence award that was to be presented by NODA in April 2020 at the Guildford Theatre. This was a brave an innovative step for CDS in conjunction with ‘Dance With Emily’. Dancers who hadn’t acted and actors who hadn’t danced merged to stage this wonderful production in the Queen’s Hall, Cuckfield. Co-directed by Sophie Bradshaw and Hariett Sheldon.


The 2017 CDS production of Bridge to Farce (written in Cuckfield by Richard Willis and Paul Ruse and directed by Sophie Bradshaw) won 2 NODA Excellence awards in 2018. Originally a one-act play written for our February Frolics, the full length version went on to play at the Queen’s Hall in Cuckfield as well as at Hurstpierpoint and in August 2018 at the Capitol Theatre in Horsham!
