KATS Community


A reading group for you!

Do you like theatre and drama?
Do you enjoy performing arts but don’t fancy donning a costume on stage?

Then the KATS@Play reading group is for you…

We get together once a month to read a selection of modern and classic plays in a friendly and informal environment. It’s a chance to meet like-minded people and have a fun evening out.

The first KATS@PLAY will take place on Wednesday January 10th 2024 at Kingsbridge Care Hub (opposite the library) 7 to 9pm.

If you would like to come along please contact please contact: patjbarlow@gmail.com for more details and to book your place. Session costs £2…


KATS to Netflix

Many people have been raving about Netflix’s period drama Bridgerton, but for one South Hams resident it was even more exciting.

Lucky Booker – stage name Lucy Anna Richardson feels that KATS and MAD helped give her a foundation for the industry… “KATS and MAD made me who I am today”, Lucy said. “I started performing with them when I was about 10-years-old and it gave me such a confidence boost, and that lasted all the way up until I was 18.”

Fantastic to see one of our former stars follow their dream. Read the full story here.

I can quite truthfully say that Oliver! was probably the best KATS show I have seen…

I moved to Kingsbridge in 2010 and knew absolutely nobody until I joined KATS.
