About us

Alternate Shadows
is all about

Alternate Shadows are a group of like minded people who love to create.

We are very lucky to have so many talented individuals who share the same sense of fun, creativity and team spirit. It isn't all about performing on stage either. There are those of us who would rather help behind the scenes. Their expertise in stage production, sound and lighting and general "techie" stuff is essential to our productions. Some of us are creative with costumes and set building, you'd be amazed at what they can conjure up from a bit of cardboard and crimpolene. Then of course you only need to cast your eye over the Poster Gallery to see how artistic some of our members are.

If you think you'd like to be a part of Alternate Shadows, drop us a line, follow us on Facebook or any of the social media platforms, come and see one of our shows, whatever you feel comfortable with we'd love to hear from you and we can promise a warm welcome.

Alternate Shadows are, without doubt, an extraordinary collection of highly talented and very creative people. But what's more, they're very progressive, with an open-mind to new writing and projects. For a writer, they're 'manna from heaven'.

- Ben Henderson 


Although we began back in 1996 with a one act play called Albert by Richard Harris,

it wasn't until 2002 that we set up it's Home

at Cleave Warne Hall in Borstal, after all that time we still perform there.

come and see us we'd love to welcome you to the Alternate Shadows.
