Spring Grove Fringe

An amateur, community drama group, founded over 30 years ago, based in the Spring Grove area of Kingston, with members from a wider area. The group usually stages four shows a year, most running for two evenings and including supper. One of the these is the annual pantomime, with extra local involvement. We also put on occasional play-readings and workshops.

Over the last ten years, more than £30,000 has been donated to local and national charities chosen by the members.

If you are interested in joining or finding out more, come to our next show or email sgfkingston@gmail.com

The fat knight farcically pursues Mistress Ford and Mistress Page and they take their revenge. He has to crawl into a basket with dirty laundry and be dumped in the Thames, to dress as a woman and be beaten by a cuckolded husband, to put on stag’s horns and be brought down to size by the villagers.

Our planned 2020 productions – ‘Outside Edge’ in May and ‘Falstaff’ in November – had to be postponed, because of COVID-19 restrictions.
We were not able to stage our usual pantomime in 2021.

Jack and the Beanstalk – February 2020

 

Jack and the Beanstalk – it’s all the usual stuff – Oh no it isn’t! – Oh yes it is …. !

A cow, a chicken, a whole hill of beans (some with stalks, some without), a hero, a heroine, idiot villagers, women dressed as men, men dressed as women.

Plenty of singing, dancing and bad jokes, but served up with the usual SGF dash and verve and absolutely not to be missed!
