Plays in Shoestring’s History

Shoestring started life as Stamford Music and Drama Club in 1943. In 1959 the group morphed into Stamford Amateur Stage. In 1962, it changed its name again, and became Stamford Shoestring Theatre.

Shoestring has performed on many stages in the town, starting with Stamford School and Stamford High School Halls, the Darby & Joan Hall, the Congregational Church Hall (now United Reformed Church Hall), and finally came to rest as Stamford Arts Centre’s resident amateur repertory company since 1978.
