Entertaining Chandler's Ford and the surrounding area since 1965
We're back with two comedies for summer.
Lockdown in Little Grimley
Little Grimley Amateur Dramatic Society aka Gordon, Joyce, Bernard and Margaret have been on our stage a couple of times in the past. Like all of us, they have been cabin’d, cribb’d and confined over the last year but now Gordon has a brilliant idea for their comeback.
Will their new show sell out? Will Margaret actually learn her lines? This hilarious play will answer these questions and many more!
- Written by David Tristram.
- Directed by Sheila Hardiman.
Five women live on the edge when their private and public lives intersect. The attempt to fulfil all of their hopes and dreams while simultaneously performing the roles of wife, mother, child, lover, and star can drive a woman to make some interesting decisions.
Weddings, school talent shows, volunteer work, and public speaking never go according to plan. Contains adult themes.
- Written by Joanna Murray-Smith.
- Directed by Clare Britton & Carrie Laythorpe.

Every year Chameleons donate some of the proceeds from our raffle to a charity nominated by the company. At the end of 2019 we chose Hampshire and Isle of Wight Air Ambulance. We have decided to continue supporting this charity this year because of the pandemic.
Do you fancy taking part in cracking comedies, daring dramas, and priceless pantos? We are always on the lookout for new members.
Chameleons are a friendly, diverse group. We have members of all ages. Even if you're a complete novice or theatre aficionado you are more than welcome to join in.
Theatre isn't all about acting, there are plenty of other things to get involved in, such as sound and lighting, backstage, props, costume and make-up, front of house, and even helping out on the bar.
We meet and rehearse every Tuesday evening at the Richie Hall in Chandler's Ford. We have regular social events and usually pop to the local pub after rehearsals.
If you're interested in joining, or just want some more information please send us an email. We look forward to hearing from you.
Chameleons isn't just for the grown-ups. We also have junior members.
Chameleon Juniors play an important part in our pantomimes. There's lots of singing, some dancing, and the occassional speaking part if you're up for it.
Juniors don't just take part in pantomime. Some plays throughout the year have parts for younger people. Beth, pictured below, was in All My Sons.
'I love being in Chameleons because ever since my first show I have felt like part of the family. We all have a passion for acting and providing a quality performance, and we still have a laugh during rehearsals. I have met some of my closest friends in the junior chorus here.'
