Calamity Jane

5 of 5 stars Reviewed via mobile

We have just returned from an excellent evening of entertainment watching Calamity Jane at the Pavilion Theatre. The dancing, singing, costumes and the music was as good as any London Show at a fraction of the price. As Bradley Walsh said it should be on everyone's list of things to do.

Two years ago we saw Oliver and this was also excellent.

Bravo Cromer amateur dramatics, we look forward to Made in Dagenham in 2017.

CSODS' Calamity Jane

5 of 5 stars Reviewed via mobile

Just got home with my wife and two teenage girls after a night in Cromer to see Calamity Jane. It's our second year and it really didn't disappoint! Calamity played by Andrea Wilson was amazing so full of energy and brought Calamity to life alongside Wild Bill who's vocal abilities are beyond belief. The whole show was amazing and the entire cast should have a special mention as you really didn't know where to look. What an amazing show well done guys can't wait for next year! We loved it! Can't rate it enough. A great night worth every penny.

2014 marked our Centenary and proved a very special year for us. North Norfolk News 3/4/14

We enjoyed three terrific and acclaimed productions: The Elephant Man in February, our record breaking musical Oliver! in May and the very popular Flint Street Nativity in October. 

We also raised over £3200 for charity, taken part in both Cromer and Sheringham Carnivals, as well as winning the most voted for boat in the Crab and Lobster Festival Bootiful Boat Trail. We also marked our proud history by unveiling plaques celebrating our Centenary and our long association at the Sheringham Little Theatre and Cromer Pier Pavilion Theatre. Click here for a few of our Centenary photos.

2015 proved to be another great year with 3 very different productions - Our February play was the compelling and thought-provoking Diary of Anne Frank at Sheringham Little Theatre, (read the review here!Our Whitsun holiday week musical was the Manilow favourite, Copacabana, with music, passion and show girls galore strutting their stuff at the Cromer Pier Pavilion Theatre. £2288 was raised for the Norwich and Waveney branch of the Motor Neurone Disease Association.

We rounded off 2015 with comedy back at the Little Theatre again in October with The Birds, The Bees and Therapy, a hilarious comedy by Jack Williams. We were thrilled to be joined by the writer who loved it! Click here for details and the review!

2016 is proving to be an equally successful year for us kicking off with packed houses for our hugely well received Little Theatre production of The Vicar of Dibley back in February.

And at the Pier Pavilion Theatre, Cromer, the final curtain has fallen on our hugely successful run of Calamity Jane. Read the review here. Our generous audiences donated £2760.25 by way of bucket collections for our chosen charity Walking with the Wounded, and to this figure, CSODS added a further £500 making a grand total of £3260.25. 

Calamity Jane May/June 2016

In October we present a compelling drama, Bracken Moor back at the Sheringham Little Theatre.

And looking ahead to 2017, we present The Ladykillers in February at the Little Theatre, and the musical, Made in Dagenham in May at the Cromer Pier Pavilion.

We do hope you can come along to one or more of these productions.
