You can join the Drama Club at any time. There are many opportunities that come up throughout the year, either to work backstage or front of house or even to step in to a part if someone steps out as inevitably happens from time to time.

We sometimes hold general open play readings. These are not auditions but allow us to get to know different plays, some with a view to producing and some just for fun. It is an opportunity for new people to meet some of our members and also to get used to reading plays and trying out different roles.

They also allow the Club to hear new people read. Anyone joining the Club should aim to come to at least one of these play readings. They are very informal and everyone who wishes to, gets a chance to read. Those who do not wish to read can just sit and listen. Of course, if you wish to act with us, we need to hear you read. tea and coffee are provided during the break.

Have you always had an urge to act, direct or work backstage? Maybe you have carpentry, sewing, front of house or tea making skills that you wish to put to good use? Or, perhaps, you just want to get involved in something new? If so, please do come along to our readings – we are a friendly lot, or let our Secretary, Anita Shaw, know on
