Everyone at The Bear Pit Theatre plays an important part in creating our work and sharing it with our audiences. The Bear Pit Associate Artists are a group of unique and talented actors and directors who have worked closely with the Artistic Director to develop and further the creative work of The Bear Pit Theatre.

The Nonentities Society is a long-established and successful Amateur Dramatic company – members of The Little Theatre Guild, and owners of The Rose Theatre. We usually present up to ten of our own shows a year and, in addition, hire the Theatre to a number of other local performance groups and Operatic Societies. We also present a number of professional shows each year – plays, bands, comedy nights and lots more. We are very proud to be able to make such a positive contribution to the cultural life of the Wyre Forest and surrounding areas. WEBSITE

    Saw both amateur groups perform at Stratford recently. Fabulous funny performances from both sets in a delightful and upbeat production. Good luck around rest of country
