Why join the Oast Theatre
Maggie Hoiles, our publicity manager and member of the 'Sociable Committee', gives you some very good reasons....
- How many amateur companies have their very own theatre?
- How many put on 10 productions a year, each with 8 performances?
- How many have two thriving Youth Groups (one for 8–13 year-olds and one for 13–18 year-olds) both putting on their own productions?
JOIN THE OAST AND ALL THIS IS OPEN TO YOU!
Did you perhaps do drama at school or have always fancied going on stage? We are always keen to have new actors and directors and you can do as much or as little as you like.
Would you be interested in getting involved on the technical side? We have very advanced lighting and sound systems and our experienced team are always keen to train new recruits!
If treading the boards isn’t your thing and you happen to be a dab hand with a needle and thread, or would love to be involved with costume, we have our own wardrobe with thousands of costumes of all periods. We hire these out to other theatre groups and to the general public, and always need help in managing it and in costuming plays. You would be part of a really lovely and sociable team.
Backstage we are always desperate for help with props and prompts for productions and are only too happy to train members on the stage management side.
For the artistic, we have a flourishing Art Club, with its own studio, which holds two exhibitions a year, plus there is the opportunity to be involved in set design, construction and painting.
IF YOU STILL NEED TO BE CONVINCED THEN READ ON!
We pride ourselves on being a warm and welcoming club and organise regular social events for members to get together and make new friends, so come and join us and use whatever skills you have, whether pulling pints behind the bar, serving interval coffee or selling ice cream and programmes.
Alternatively, be an audience member and enjoy all that the Theatre has to offer, including tickets for our shows at a substantial discount!
IT CERTAINLY BEATS EVENINGS WATCHING THE BOX - SO WHY NOT JOIN NOW?
