Welcome to the Double Act web site!

Greetings from Double Act, Corfe Castle’s very own (Award Winning!) amateur dramatics group.

A little of our Group’s Background………

Double Act is an amateur dramatic group that was formed in 1997 by the amalgamation of the Purbeck Community Theatre (PCT) and the Corfe Valley Drama Group (CVDG) and who between them have written and produced many unique and well received plays of local interest as well as performing entertaining classics for over 24 years. The group is based at Corfe Castle Village Hall and presents a major production in November each year. Meetings are held on the first Monday evening of each month (7 – 8.30pm) and the group organises at least one annual trip to a theatre

Since the group started its series of bi-annual summer Medieval Murder Mystery Walks in 2000 these events, now inside the Castle ruins, have become immensely popular and attract ever increasing and returning audiences from all over the country. Our members come from all over Purbeck, cover all ages and enjoy an entertaining challenge with fun, social exchange and confidence building benefits. We are particularly proud of the large number of youngsters that have joined us over the years, some with learning difficulties, and all of whom have gained great benefit from dramatic expression. 

New members are always welcome at any age or ability, with interests on or off stage – so why not join us?
