MAD was founded in 1981 as the successor of an ad hoc group of Sunday School teachers and their spouses who – annually – put on a home-made pantomime. A few of the founding members are still active in the Group. Over 400 different people have been involved with MAD over the years (on and off-stage) and MAD is proud of the very wide age range it has attracted and the good social life it enjoys.
