Stepping Out

is a wonderful feel-good comedy about the attempts of a group of amateurs to overcome their inhibitions and left feet in a church hall in North London.  

Mavis, a former professional chorus girl tries her hardest to teach the group (of very mixed abilities), some tap dancing skills for an upcoming recital.  But before the dancing begins Mavis must mediate the minor dramas that erupt amongst this motley but loveable crew on their way to triumph at the recital.  A show that will have you dancing in your seat and ordering your tap shoes before the night is out!
Cast in Rehearsal
Your Club Needs You!

Do you have an interest in Directing?

  • We have a short play in mind as part of a double bill of short plays being planned for October.
  • A short one-act play with a smaller cast makes the process much simpler - so it's a great place for someone with or without acting experience to try their hand!
  • If you feel inspired but don't feel you have enough experience then CDS is a great place to start.
  • We have experienced directors who can guide and mentor you through the process of auditioning, casting, rehearsal planning and liaising with the technical and stage management areas before you step back on opening night!
  • And to make things run as smoothly as possible at CDS off stage issues are managed by a separate producer. So unlike many groups you won't need to manage all the auxiliary details such as ticket sales, publicity, and front of house management.
  • Why not send us an email or get in touch to find out more?

CDS goes Contactless!

CDS will be taking contactless card payments at the bar and for some other sales!

We can take VISA, Mastercard or even American Express as well as Apple Pay and Google Pay for swifter service at the bar or Box Office.  We took our first trial payment at the Cuckoo Fayre and look forward to using the system in earnest at Stepping Out!

We don't print receipts but if you want one you can enter your email address or a mobile phone number to receive one.

Stepping Out Seating Plan

Seats for Stepping Out are selling fast...
But you can pick your own location when you book online.

Please note that we will be using a seating layout different to usual.

There will be a larger stalls section and to avoid blocking the fire escape the raked seating will be placed so that it's back row is at the rear of the Queen's Hall.
