Dryburn Theatrical Workshop is an enthusiastic amateur theatre group, based in Chester-le-Street, County Durham, which has been performing for almost 40 years. We currently perform a pantomime every January, a musical every June and a play every September.

We have around 50 members, aged 11 and upwards. As a group, we bring together an eclectic mix of talented local people, keen to learn and entertain. We are passionate about the group and its members, who many regard as family, and putting on professional-standard productions.

We rehearse on Monday and Wednesday evenings in Chester-le-Street, as well as enjoying various fundraising and social events throughout the year, including after-show parties, picnics, theatre trips, seasonal parties, fairs and even an annual group weekend away.
