Our membership fees start from just £10 per year for adults and you can get involved via a range of roles.
We don't have a star system- anyone who wants to act gets a part in at least one production a year. You learn by doing, so no experience is necessary, and other cast members are very supportive- you will work hard, but you will have a lot more fun than you get watching a drama on TV. There is nothing like the adrenalin rush you get from performing in front of a live audience!
A play is like an iceberg- there are many more people involved than those you see on stage- and it is all about team-work! We need stage managers, scene painters and designers, people to source, design and look after costumes and props, writers, directors and researchers- people who will say: Why don't we do such and such- I saw it at …. and it was hilarious! Your ideas are as important as your work!
Lighting and sound are fascinating and often crucial to the impact and atmosphere of a play. We have a fully equipped and computerised sound and lighting cabin. Are you a computer geek? Are you Gadget Man or Woman?
FRONT OF HOUSE
If you don't want the relatively long term commitment (about 8 weeks) of a production, you can enjoy the buzz of performance by helping meet and greet, or sell raffle tickets, drinks and ice creams on one or more nights.
