Welcome to Mad Cow Productions

~ Shropshire Amateur Theatrical Company

Mad Cow Productions

Mad Cow Productions has been a highly successful, award-winning, Shropshire based amateur theatrical company that was set up in 2003 by Alex Hinton and Lisa Lowarch. But the time has come for the Cows to retire. There will be one final fab-u-lous production (see below). Before we go out to grass. Please feel free to explore this website if you'd like to see what we achieved. We aimed to create high quality theatre for the people of Shropshire, with high production values and strong performances, at an accessible price and to enable our members to reach new, and ever higher standards of performance. This ethos won us three Mayors Special Award for our "OUTSTANDING CONTRIBUTION TO THE LOCAL COMMUNITY"

Do come and see our LAST performance and find out what all the fuss was about.

Welcome again to Mad Cow’s site; we hope you enjoy your visit!

Next Production:

Don't Dress For Dinner - by Marc Camoletti adapted by Robin Hawdon 27th - 30th October 2021

Theatre Severn, Shrewsbury

Tickets available now: click here


MCP presents the long-running West End comedy hit DON’T DRESS FOR DINNER, a delicious web of marital treachery with all the ingredients for a laughter filled evening.

Bernard has planned a romantic rendezvous with his mistress, complete with a gourmet caterer and an alibi, courtesy of his friend Robert. But when Bernard’s wife learns that Robert will be visiting for the weekend, she decides to stay home and plan a surprise liaison of her own…

The stage is set for a collision course of assumed identities and outrageous infidelities. The cook is Suzette, the lover is Suzanne, the friend is bewildered, the wife is suspicious, the husband is losing his mind and everyone is guaranteed a good time at this hilarious romp.

This amateur production of “Don’t Dress For Dinner” is presented by arrangement with Concord Theatricals Ltd. on behalf of Samuel French Ltd. www.concordtheatricals.co.uk

Wed £16.50, Sat Mat £17, Thu, Fri and Sat Eve £18.

Running Time: Approximately 120 mins
