               COVID-19 Advice (issued 18 March 2020)

Given the current circumstances we've had a high number of groups make contact with us, and, due to the amount of effort put into rehearsals/marketing etc, most of them have so far wanted to re-schedule rather than cancel. We're not charging fees for any deferral of productions.

If you decide to postpone your production you probably won't know the dates for later in the year, or next year, yet, but please advise us nevertheless, and we'll issue a new temporary licence to show a date range of 2-3 months which you can then refine with us when the actual production dates are known.

Regarding cancellation: our administration fee will not be levied where you are forced to cancel your production.

Ian Bettridge

Ian is originally from Birmingham, but has moved with his wife to Torquay as, being a big Agatha Christie fan, Torquay is the ideal place. He has been involved in amateur theatre for nearly thirty years.

His first stage performance was at the age of twelve where he played the magic telly in a school production of Snow White where he was bitten by the acting bug. He didn't have the confidence to take it seriously though until he joined a local group in Kingshurst in 1985 at the age of 18 where he played various parts, from his first one as Doctor Bradman in Blythe Spirit to various panto roles.

On the advice of a friend he moved from there to Castle Bromwich Theatre Group in 1990, where he continued to flourish in various dramatic and pantomime parts for the next 22 years. It was here where he started writing pantomimes for the group and other societies. He has been writing pantomimes for the past 14 years and has 7 to his name at present.

"Pantomimes", he says, "are a better writing experience" as they are more structured, and in his words "he doesn't go off on a tangent when writing". As well as writing pantomimes he has performed in a few, playing anything from the woodcutter in Hansel and Gretel to the wolf in Red Riding Hood. However, this said his absolute favourite is playing dame. He has also taken the reins and put on his Director’s hat on a couple of occasions.
