Frequently Asked Questions.

Everything you need to know.

What sort of shows do you do?
We usually stage 2 or 3 a year. January is traditionally pantomime time (e.g. "Alice in Wonderland", "Dick Whittington"); May/June usually sees some sort of musical production, whether a 'proper musical', or revue, or cabaret (e.g. "Grease", "When You're Smiling"); whilst September tends to be a 'straight play' (e.g. Agatha Christie's "The Hollow", "There's a girl in My Soup").This is the answer to the question.

Your shows look so professional - I could never be that good, could I?
Often asked (we're glad to say) by people who've seen our shows. The answer? Oh yes you could! Naturally, we set ourselves high standards - after all we have a reputation to maintain. However, being "professional" is all about following a few basic rules, applying a few "tricks of the trade" and doing the best you can. Again, if you've got the commitment and the enthusiasm, we'll give you the "know how", so that you too can be a "true pro".

How much time does it involve?
Rehearsals commence approximately 3 months before show time, and usually involve 2 nights a week for each cast member. Although, where time is short, or people combine principal roles with chorus/dancing parts, 3 nights a week may sometimes be required.

Is it as much hard work as it sounds?
Well, like most things in life, the more you put in to it the more you get out. Certainly, being in a show requires a fair amount of time, energy and dedication. However, it's far from being all work and no play. After all, if we didn't enjoy it, we wouldn't do it. Rehearsals are usually enjoyable, often hilarious, and sociable affairs. Plus, we organise a wide range of social activities.

So, is it worth all the effort?
You bet! Whatever part you play, whether on or off stage, no matter how great or small, there's a real sense of achievement in helping to create a successful production. When you sense the audience's reaction to the drama unfolding before them, and hear their applause, boy, is it worth it?! There really is no feeling like it. You only have to look at the faces of the cast and crew at the end of a show to know that they get a real buzz from doing it.
