Hello, thank you for visiting and welcome along to the website of the Lovelace Theatre Group. We are small but dynamic and vibrant group engaged in the production of plays musicals and amateur theatre.

The Lovelace Theatre Group puts on three productions a year and has a long history dating back to the late 60's. We perform at the John Godber Centre in Hucknall, Nottinghamshire. The building is a converted church hall which has a purpose built stage complete with licenced bar and full amenities. There's rumoured to be a ghost wandering about backstage too!
Feel free to browse the website.

We hope you enjoy looking around.
May 2018 production announced: Time. Murderer, Please.

by Charles Raymond Dyer

Join us in our fiftieth year as we travel back to the 1960s for Charles Raymond Dyer's comedy thriller set in darkest North London. 

A stranger arrives at a North London pub claiming to have lost his memory, but bearing a close resemblance to a man wanted for questioning about the seemingly senseless murder of a school teacher. At first, the residents and staff of the pub have no suspicions, but the mysterious visitor begins to draw his own conclusions as pieces of his identity begin to fall into place - is he really Michael Wiltone, the man the Police are seeking?

Thursday 17th May (7:30pm)
Friday 18th May (7:30pm) - sold out
Saturday 19th May (7:30pm)

This amateur production is presented by arrangement with Josef Weinberger Ltd.

The Lovelace Theatre Junior Group
The Lovelace Theatre Group is always on the lookout for new talent not only with adults but also children. They are our lifeblood especially for our annual pantomime which takes place in January each year.

We hold Junior Group each Wednesday evening from 7:45pm to 9:30pm and these consist of drama sessions and acting lessons as well as song and dance. A small nominal cost of £1 to cover the cost of hire of our venue is made for this.

Our Recent Performances
You might be wondering if this night's for you,
You may know some Shakespeare
You may not have a clue,
But one thing we can promise you,
To our own selves we'll be true.

Join us for an evening of Elizabethan theatre, showcasing the best of Shakespeare and the best of Lovelace as we explore the funniest moments, the most tragic tragedies and the goriest deaths in the canon
Our May 2017 performance was 'Stags and Hens'. It's 1970s Britain, and Dave and Linda are getting married in the morning, but both the stag and hen parties have wound up in the same run down nightclub.

When Dave collapses in a drunken heap in the toilets, and Linda’s old flame unexpectedly appears, things start to get very complicated in this Willy Russell comedy.

This amateur production of 'Stags and Hens (The remix)' is presented by special arrangement with SAMUEL FRENCH, Ltd.
