What we do
Putting on a show involves people from all walks of life and capabilities, so even if you don’t fancy treading the boards, we need help backstage with props, costumes, make-up and hair or front-of-house, or even selling tickets, designing programs, etc. We are always looking for a cast of all age ranges and levels of experience. If you have not performed on stage before don’t let this put you off getting in touch or coming along to our next audition.
If you need to know more or have any queries, please call Gill Clifton on (01460) 53275 or Allison Kelly on (01460) 52607.
