Welcome to Leighton Buzzard Drama Group
To watch ROBIN HOOD, Ye Olde Zoome Panto, head over to our panto page here.
To see how our 2021 panto was produced, see below for a short video made by ITV News Anglia on the making of this show, and further down there is a link to the NODA site where the NODA review can be found.
We continue to be an active group through the pandemic. Planning is already underway for the 2022 panto and that plan includes auditions/rehearsals beginning in the summer. It is also hoped that a play can be produced this autumn. We have also been holding play readings and other activities over zoom, which have been highly entertaining during lockdown.
We are always looking for new members for both performing and 'backstage' roles. Anyone interested in joining us should contact our Membership Secretary, Jo Taylor. Click on the button below to send her an email. Also check out the second video below in which performers in Red Riding Hood (our 2020 panto) tell us why they enjoy Drama Group.

Our association with the Leighton Buzzard Library Theatre
LBDG are proud to work in association with the Leighton Buzzard Library Theatre, the home of our drama groups productions for the last 60 years. Each Christmas LBDG normally produces a sell-out run of 15 pantomime performances. This year, with Covid-19, our ‘normal’ plans were somewhat scuppered, but we were pleased to have the support of the Library Theatre with our new and original online panto.
