Welcome to Theatrecraft Herne Bay

Theatrecraft Herne Bay is a highly successful, award winning amateur dramatic society based in Herne Bay, Kent.

We have been entertaining local audiences since 1948 and put on three major productions each year: a play, a musical and Herne Bay's annual pantomime.

This year Theatrecraft is presenting Treasure Island, written by Hales, Hogan and Wright, and courtesy of Spotlight Productions.

This rollicking adventure yarn will be filled with all of the traditional pantomime elements: baddies to be booed at and heroes to be cheered, men in dresses and girls in pants, a host of gags, excellent songs to sing along to and colourful chrous routines.

So keep your eyes peeled here for more details of when our read through and audtions are to take place and also when tickets for this swashbuckling spectacular go on sale.  








The Who's Tommy - Whitstable Playhouse

Theatrecraft has just finished an absolutely amazing four night run of The Who's Tommy at the Playhouse Whitstable. 

And to say that we went out with a bang is a complete understatement.  With a second standing ovation, a full house and a roaring crowd we bade our farewell to the Playhouse Whitstable in full rock style. 

We have had two incredible reviews from NODA (National Operatic and Dramatic Association) and Sardines Magazine and plaudits galore hitting our Theatrecraft Facebook Page from happy audience members who managed to get tickets for this one of a kind theatrical event.

NODA reviewer Cheryl Mumford said "this was a superb production of a tricky show which myself (and the audience) thoroughly enjoyed." 

Sardine Magazine reviewer Peter Bressington said "taking on this show is not for the fainthearted, but Theatrecraft gleefully and successfully shows they are up for the challenge"

"Directed by Andrew Cozens this is a no-nonsense, in-you-face, take-no-prisoners show.  It is brash and loud just as it should be"

To say we fulfilled our ambition for this glorious production would be to sell ourselves short.  This was Theatrecraft at its very best with our creative team, back stage team, technical team, front of house team and our talented cast all working together to put on a show that we believe Whitstable will be talking about for many weeks to come.
