A short history of SETC
The idea of forming an English theatre company in Sitges grew from
a conversation at the Casablanca Bar in Sitges. Many small towns and
villages in the UK have thriving amateur dramatic societies, so why
shouldn’t Sitges, with its large expatriate community, have one as well ?
The enthusiasm of Brandon Jones, the bar owner, soon spread to the regulars
and a meeting of interested people was first brought together in the autumn
of 1999. A steering group prepared the way for the first Annual General
Meeting, held in January 2000, when a Committee was elected and
Jimmy Gardiner was elected Chairman.
Over the years we have come to perform mostly at the Antic Escorxador
(the Old Slaughterhouse) in C/Joan Maragall, behind Playa San Sebastian. However in recent years we have also performed at the Casino Prado Suburense and at IAB (Institute of the Arts, Barcelona).
Social events, like quizzes, comedy nights, themed evenings and barbecues
are held at other suitable venues.
