Impact is a hugely creative and contemporary theatre company, founded by actress Amanda Noar and now in its 10th year. From humble beginnings with just a handful of locals, Impact has now evolved into a thriving and highly successful theatre company. Cast members are from all over North London, from various cultural backgrounds and of all age groups.
The company based in Finchley, North London is essentially made up of amateurs, drama students and "resting pro's". Impact prides itself on being a community orientated group and never turning anyone away, providing they are enthusiastic and willing to have a go.
Each year Impact puts together a number of activities, theatrical workshops, reviews, play readings and various fundraisers for both adults and children. The year always culminates in a major musical show. Not only well known favourites such as "Annie" and "Little Shop of Horrors" but also the lesser known avant-garde musical that gives audiences a taste of something unusual.
Impact now has a dedicated group of performers numbering between 40-60 and also a very loyal following in the community, that has resulted in sell out performances for all our shows.
Each year Impact stages a musical the profits from which are donated to charity. We are anxious to stress that our main aim is to provide an opportunity for enthusiastic people of all ages and abilities to develop their interests in all aspects of the theatre while at the same time raising money for worthwhile charities. To date we have raised over £90,000 for good causes including:
Hearing Dogs for Deaf People, War Child, Cancer Care, Sargent Cancer Care for Children, Breast Cancer Unit - Northwick Park Hospital, Rett Syndrome Association, Karen Morris Memorial Trust, Haemappeal, Royal Free Hospital, Richard House Children's Hospice, Variety Club of Great Britain - Sunshine Coaches, Fight for Life, Cystic Fibrosis, Wizo - Aviv, Bobath Centre for Children with Cerebral Palsy
