Jack & The Beanstalk

The Springfield Follies is an Ipswich based amateur dramatic group that has existed for 67 years. Our aim is to promote the arts through encouraging drama and its associated activities for all ages. Ordinarily our performances are of 3 types:

  • Pantomime (January/February)
  • Variety Show (May)
  • Tailored performances for hire

Rehearsal nights are Mondays 7.30pm at St. Mary's Magdalen Church Hall Highfield Approach, Ipswich Suffolk IP1 6DF, with a break over the summer months. Read throughs, auditions and AGMs are also held at the church hall.

Performances are usually at Kesgrave Community Centre, Twelve Acre Approach, Kesgrave, IP5 1JF, and St Augustine's Church Hall, Bucklesham Road, Ipswich, IP3 8TH.

We are a friendly group, with a family style atmosphere and welcome new members. We are proud to make donations annually in support of local charities.

The ideal time to contact the Follies with a view to joining (performing) is either the beginning of February (variety show) or between July and early September (panto).
