We welcome new members! Ever fancied being someone else? Well, acting is a great way of taking on a new persona. If you've never experienced the buzz of pulling off a dazzling performance and getting acclaim from an appreciative audience, we can give you that opportunity. We like to involve new members as soon as we can, even if that means only a small part at first. If you would rather work behind the scenes, there are plenty of roles for you to make your mark, including set-building and decorating, sound and lighting, props, costumes, make-up, prompt, publicity, front-of-house, refreshments as well as producer, stage manager and director.
We put on two productions a year - in May and November - and occasionally enter drama festivals too. Usually we discuss and select the next play as soon as we can after finishing the last one. After casting, we rehearse on Wednesday evenings for about
3 months, with Mondays added for about 2 months. For the two weekends before performance evenings (usually Wednesday through to Saturday) it's all hands on deck to help build the set, dress and paint it, then do a technical rehearsal.
Membership fees are a modest £20 a year (less for concessions). For that you get camaraderie with a bunch of fun-loving like-minded people, outings to the theatre, dinners out and going to the pub, as well as the chance to do something creative that you can be proud of.
It can be hard work, requiring commitment, but ultimately very rewarding.
Just come along to Eynsham Village Hall, Back Lane, OX29 4QW
on a Wednesday evening at 7:30 pm
and meet us (a map to help you find us is shown below).
