St Philip & St James Church Drama Group draws in adults and young people from across the community and performs dramas, musicals and pantomimes, as well as productions that bring the message of Jesus to all.
The group has been running since 1958 and has performed a wide range of musicals, revues and pantomimes on the stage within the church building. The group is made up of church members, people from the local community and other Bath churches and has an open policy so that anyone who would like to perform is given the opportunity. As well as the performers, there is a well-supported and skilled backstage team and costume department.
The group puts on very popular community pantomimes and in 2018 won the Rose Bowl Award for Best Pantomime in the South West of England for Puss in Boots. They also perform shows that have a Christian message including The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe and Godspell in recent years. In April 2019 the group performed a modern-day adaption of the Easter Passion called #misjudged which was written and created by group members.
In January 2020, the group are putting on the pantomime Snow White. Tickets are on sale now from ticketsource
