7th & 8th July 2023

Come and enjoy us a fantastic show full  hope, betrayal and comedy. Based on the novel by Charles Dickens, Oliver Twist is a young orphan. His life in the workhouse is lonely and sad. Oliver becomes an apprentice for an undertaker but runs away after he gets into a fight. When Oliver arrives in London, he meets  the Artful Dodger, who offers him a place to stay, but this comes with a price.
Family entertainment for all ages.

Linton Amateur Dramatic Association

Linton Amateur Dramatic Association (LADA) is a community amateur dramatic group based in Linton, South Derbyshire. Comprising of members from the local community we aim to provide local access to drama and theatre in a regular basis and enable the local community to be involved, either through delivering performances or by enjoying the shows as an audience member.

We aim to provide access to arts and entertainment in the rural community on a long term basis.  We currently have a membership drawn from the local community and provide opportunities for local people to get involved in all aspects of drama whether it is acting, writing, wardrobe, make up, set design, backstage, sound and audio, marketing and PR.

The group has been operating since 2007 and encourages likeminded individuals to be part of our productions. On average we have around 25 individuals in the group and we regularly attract over 200 people each time we perform. The group is open to young people aged 10 and over and adults.

What do we do?

The group delivers 2 productions a year which includes a Panto and a summer production. Our previous shows have been varied and interesting and usually involve a large amount of audience participation. We try to do something different each summer to provide variety and to give the actors a challenge!

We meet weekly on a Thursday 7.00-9.00pm to rehearse and create the sets. There are a few dress rehearsals held on the Thursday and Fridays nearer the show dates.

There are 3 shows for each production which are performed on a Friday night, a Saturday matinee and Saturday night.
