Amateur dramatics scene

Any budding actors, producers, directors or set/costume designers here?

In the UK I was part of a very active group that used to compete in drama festivals; in Australia there was no such thing; here in Finland the quality varies somewhat but there's a thriving English-language drama scene. My Aunt in France is part of two groups, one English-language and one French-language.

How about in Switzerland, and particularly on the French-speaking side? Is 'amateur dramatics' a thing, and what languages do they happen in? Anyone recommend a group to reach out to?

Search for both GEDS and GAOS, both active in English for decades.

Geneva English Drama Society,
Geneva Amateur Operatic Society.

GAOS does (in normal times) the Christmas pantomime. (Oh! No they don’t !)

This is off the Basel Semi Circle website - links to Switzerland-based ham-dram groups:

For anyone in Zürich, there is the ZURICH ENGLISH-SPEAKING THEATRE.
