About the company

The Chandler's Ford Chameleon Theatre Company has been presenting plays to the people of Chandler's Ford since 1965.

We are a small company and perform and rehearse at the Ritchie Memorial Hall in Chandlers Ford. We put on four productions, including a pantomime, each year and participate in the one act play competitions staged by Totton Drama Festival.

Joining a drama group is not just about "treading the boards"; putting on a play needs a wide variety of skills and usually more backstage and front of house staff than there are cast on stage!



It's not all work and no play!

Chameleons enjoy an active social life as well, starting immediately after rehearsal with a well earned visit to our local pub. We celebrate the end of every production with a party after the last night, although this is a relatively quiet affair as we have to be up early the next morning to strike set. Throughout the year, we have car treasure hunts, quiz nights, bowling evenings, go out for an Indian or Italian meal together, barbecues, and more parties. The reptilian chameleon may be a shy and retiring creature, not so the Chandler's Ford species!
