Welcome to the Hippodrome

  One of the UK's largest community run theatres


Joyce Branagh, known to the Todmorden Hippodrome as Joyce Fraser, who adapted both Vicar of Dibley productions for T.A.O.D.S. and performed in many memorable shows such as Day of Reckoning, The 39 Steps and Two, picked up a prestigious Manchester Theatre Award trophy for her show Boomtown Gals which played at the Hippodrome last year. 


Joyce wrote the show and played all the characters in this upbeat tale about Lancashire Lasses during the Great War. It toured Greater Manchester, Lancashire and Yorkshire and justifiably picked up 'Best Fringe Performance' at the award ceremony in April.
