Welcome to Reaction Theatre

Reaction Theatre is an association based at Secondigny in the Deux Sevres which was formed as a local amateur dramatic group drawing its membership and audience from the Deux Sevres and the Vendee. Our Constitution is shown in full on the About Us page.

See our “What’s On” page for details of our next production.

The aim of the group is to put on two productions a year, one in the  spring and one in the  autumn.  Most productions are held at the theatre at Secondigny but occasionally other performances may be held in other theatres.

Since being formed, the association has grown to include a singing group named Keynotes and an art group, The Art Scene.

The Keynotes Singers , were formed so that people could sing regularly for pleasure and to give performances from time to time. We sing a wide range of English and French songs and meet every Friday afternoon in Secondigny.

The Art Scene which is another of our members groups holds weekly meetings, every Friday morning in Secondigny, and is aimed at introducing people to the delight of painting and drawing and to allow those interested to paint or draw for pleasure and share knowledge and techniques in a friendly and helping group.

Both Keynotes and the Art Scene meet at the cafe des belles fleurs on a Friday, art in the morning and singing in the afternoon.  What better way to spend the day? interested contact as below.
