Sardines Magazine




    Whatever you call it – ‘amateur’, ‘non-paid’, ‘non-professional’, ‘community theatre’ or just plain old ‘amdram’ – if you are connected or interested in amateur theatre in ANY capacity then Sardines is absolutely the magazine for you.
    Stylishly modern, colourful and contemporary, Sardines is the no.1 quarterly magazine for the UK’s amateur sector (that’s over 2 million people in the UK).
    However, don’t feel you need to live in the UK to enjoy Sardines; most of our content is of international appeal.
    Sardines publishes features, articles and interviews with world-famous actors & performers (e.g. Michael Crawford, Sir Ian McKellen, Michael Ball), internationally renown composers & playwrights (Michael Frayn, Ray Cooney, Andrew Lloyd Webber), information and advice from some of the world’s top drama schools, publications and organisations (The Stage, Mountview, GSA, ArtsEd etc.), new releases available to the amateur market (Samuel French, Rodgers & Hammerstein, Josef Weinberger etc.) as well as a plethora of backstage & technical advice from worldwide industry experts.
    “And why are you called ‘Sardines’?” you cry… just Google “funniest farce ever written” and you will find the answer. Then, should your interest be aroused may we suggest downloading the FREE sample edition from this app where you will find – among other delights – our interview with playwright, Michael Frayn.
