About Castaway Theatre Group and a little bit of History!

Castaways is a group of children and adults based at The Octagon Theatre, Yeovil Somerset. 

The group is run by Lyn Lee Brown and meet on Saturday mornings.

Castaways group was set up in 2005 initially as a way to raise funds for St Margaret's Hospice, a charity very close to Lyn's heart. 

Their initial show Summer Follies were performed at the local village hall in Barwick and raised £1000 with a cast of 15 adults and 7 children.

The group continues to raise money for many charities today and has raised in excess of £20,000 over the years.
