Woodcote Amateur Dramatic Society (WADS) was founded in 1965 and has an established reputation for staging musical/Drama/Panto theatre productions that are of an exceptional standard using talent from in and around Woodcote.
We are an enthusiastic friendly group, who perform three times a year in the Woodcote Village Hall. We stage an annual pantomime which is always very popular with local audiences of all ages and represents a traditional aspect of true English village life.
We also stage productions in spring and autumn and these include a varied selection of entertainment. Recent years have seen a number of successful murder mystery evenings, various revues, plenty of comedies, and some musical evenings.
If you are reading this, it is likely that you share our passion for the theatre. Whether you are keen on playwriting, acting, sound and lighting, set building, costumes, make-up or any other aspect of amateur dramatics – WADS is the place for you!
All Ages, young and old are most welcome No previous experience needed
A HUGE THANK YOU to everyone who helped make Murder Weekend such a big success. It was a very enjoyable experience with a happy cast and crew. I received lots of positive comments while mingling with the audience. Hopefully, especially to those who had very little or no experience it left you wanting to do more!

WADS have gone from strength to strength!
I very much enjoyed the panto, and I miss it, and you all very much. Can't wait till the next one. Thanks to everyone who, as always, made a lowly Caversham dweller so welcome. I love the village atmosphere and community. Not to mention working with the many great Thespians.
Thank you for letting me join in the WADS panto, I thoroughly enjoyed it and share the comments of others in congratulating all concerned.
Not forgetting Carol's golden fingers
The memory of her magical playing still lingers!
