KDC Theatre Awards & Cabaret 2023

Please join us for the second annual KDC Awards Nights on Friday 1 September, 8pm. We’ll be handing out awards, getting together with casts form the past year, and generally having a good old time!

Bored of the same-old standard awards categories? Us too. Rather than best actor, best director etc, we’re opting for awards that recognise some great moments in each show from the past year. You can vote right now, using this form and the winners will be recognised on the night!

Featuring some familiar KDC faces from the last year, the night is an excuse to remember some of your favourite moments from each show. If you’ve been involved in – or have seen – a KDC show in the last year, come along to cheer on the nominees as we celebrate a fabulous time spend making some great theatre together.

Venue: The top floor @ The Castle, 44 Commercial Road, London E1 1LN

Tickets: £9

Call time: 8pm

Your entrance: Arrival bubbles (on us)

Dress code: Up to you of course, but we’ll be dressed to the nines

Awards ceremony: From 8.30pm, with an interval

Post awards: Dancing and drinks till the early hours- same venue


What’s the vibe?  Irreverent, informal with a touch of glamour.

Who will be there?  Cast, crew and KDC-ers new and old.

Do I have to be a member of KDC or have been in a show in the last year to come?  Not at all. Everyone’s welcome. Come with your friends, former cast mates or just come by yourself to get to know KDC- we’re a friendly bunch. Plus ones welcome.

Should I eat beforehand?  Yes, if you think you’ll be hungry. If you forget to eat earlier and fancy ordering takeout later in the night to the dance floor, that’s A-OK with the venue.

Will there be awards for best actor, director, etc?  We thought about this for a minute but we’re not really looking to judge our wonderful cast, creatives and crew. Look out for awards categories that celebrate the love and sweat that goes into each show.

Will there be any performances from shows I’ve missed on the night?  There might be, yes…

What does the ticket cost cover?  Welcome drinks and the costs of putting on the event.

Annual General Meeting 2018

Hoop & Grapes, 7.30pm Thursday 26 July 2018

We look forward to seeing you for our first Annual General Meeting as a Charity. Join us for a drink or two and meet up with old and new friends.

We need to appoint our trustees for 2018-2019, so if you want to get more involved in KDC, now is your chance. No specific skills required, just a bit of spare time and plenty of enthusiasm.

Whether it’s organising a social, scheduling rehearsals, balancing the books or being the voice of KDC on social media, we’d love to have you help out. A little or a lot, we don’t mind, and you can still help out without having to become a trustee.

We’ll be covering plans for the forthcoming year, and taking on ideas – so if you have a burning issue, or a fantastic idea for us to use, come along and let us know.

We look forward to seeing you there.

2016 Christmas Quiz

Thank you to everyone who participated in last season’s shows, whether you performed, contributed or came along to see it, it has been a wonderful run. We have had such a varied range of productions that have all been to an excellent standard! Looking ahead, we will be releasing the details for the next season soon so watch this space!

But to tide ourselves over till then we have some KDC mischief to make in the meantime…

It’s that time of year again… the days are getting darker, the nights are getting colder and those cravings for ‘fun facts’ with lashings of tinsel, a side of festive tunes and probably just a pinch of glitter simply must be satisfied.Put a team together (about 6 should do it) or just turn up and meet some new people, it doesn’t matter if you’ve been involved in a KDC show recently or ever – the quiz is open to all. We will eat, drink, be generally merry and prizes will be awarded to the victors. There is no cost to take part but voluntary donations will be gratefully received on the night for Crisis.

So, don your best (or worst) Christmas jumper and come and get your quiz at our local, The Hoop and Grapes, on Thursday 15 December. Quiz starts at 7.30pm but the bar will be open from 7pm.

Tied to the Vicarage by Bob Eckhard
Vicar-and-wife team James and Karen are moving back to the Vicarage to hide the fact that they’ve been illicitly sub-letting it to their sister-in-law Julia. Sadly, Julia wasn’t quite honest about the type of business she’s been running.

Respawn by Susan Gray
Two identities are trying to find peace with their pasts and present, which has been drastically changed through the process of uploading consciousnesses. Can they prove that immortality doesn’t have to be a hard sell?
