Holy Ridiculous began when a group from All Saints’ Church Choir went to a pantomime, came out and said “We can do that”. And so they did, with Cinderella in 2001 and 4 more pantomimes, until Sleeping Beauty in 2015.  Interspersed with this were Musicals, plays and Murder Mysteries.

One of the problems encountered by those putting on these shows, was that after the performances, all the cast and helpers who had bonded and worked hard to make them all a success, then went their separate ways, until they were found and called upon to take part in the next one. 
Unlike other Am Dram groups, Holy Ridiculous has never had a formal membership.  We have a Facebook page, a website, a twitter page and a mailing list, but we want all of you who take part in performing the shows and plays take a full part in HR and be able to vote at the AGM.

Because we value every single person who has been involved with Holy Ridiculous, and will  in the future, the Committee have decided to introduce a membership, for a nominal fee per year, and would like to invite you all to join. 


Membership will: · 

     Allow you to vote at the AGM, or any Extraordinary General Meeting. 
     Allow you to perform in any of our shows.
     Include you in the HR Insurance
     Give you access to a Members page on the web site with information about shows, song sheets, music, scripts etc.

Membership categories are as follows

  • Adult membership—£5.00 per year
  • Junior membership (under 16) and students up to the age of 25—£2.50  per year.    
  • Honorary Membership, if you have been involved and performed with HR for many years. (Honorary members to be decided by the Committee). No fee.
Subscriptions will be paid by Go Cardless Direct Debit annually. 

nb. Membership fees will be in addition to the nominal ‘Show Fee’ we normally charge to help with costumes, script purchases, hall hire, copyright etc.  If you wish to become a member please e-mail us  and we will send you an application form. We look forward to hearing from you, and seeing you at auditions.
