Unfortunately the Good Companions have now been dissolved, however, “from the Ashes” has grown a new Travelling Drama Group now based in Church Minshull named the Minshull Amateur Dramatics Group or the MAD Group for short. Here is the link to the website.

Here is the original History… ……

 
The Good Companions have been active in Bunbury for over 30 years and have presented a mix of shows from musicals to murder mysteries and from pantomimes to Shakespeare. The group were originally formed to make use of the Bunbury Village Hall, using the most basic of scenery and props, but now have a full stage within the hall, with scenery, wardrobe, lighting and sound. Productions have also been staged in Church Minshull, Reaseheath College and Kelsall. In 2014, at the A.G.M., the decision was made to turn the Good Companions into a dual centre group, based in the village halls of Bunbury and Church Minshull.
