Are you fun-loving, sociable, industrious, a team-player, reliable, a first timer, an old hand, experienced, have no experience, over 16, would like to be part of a successful group? Whatever your talent or experience we have a role for you at The Castle Players.
If you like to be on the stage, why not audition for a role in one of our shows? To get as many people involved as possible, as well as having actors taking large speaking roles, our summer performances typically have large crowds of supporting actors filling the stage, sometimes even singing and dancing. Whether you are an existing member or are with us for the first time you will have an equal chance of a part. Our audition process is very informal and nothing to worry about.
Stage Management/Set Building/Costumes etc.
Putting on a show is a huge team effort and takes people with many different skills including set building and painting, costume making, props, stage management, lighting, sound, front of house, making tea etc. We build our summer outdoor theatre from scratch every year and are especially happy to see "handy" people.
It's not all about acting and performing! A huge army of volunteers runs the organisation, led by a team of company directors who meet formally every month to make decisions for the good of the company. There are also an array of sub-teams for Marketing, Communications, Publicity, Productions, Programming etc., who do a lot of the "behind the scenes work." Please get in touch if you have skills or interests in these areas.
Why should I join The Castle Players?
Practical experience is gained through our hands-on approach to large and small scale drama events. Our workshop and rehearsal processes are designed to provide you with the chance to develop theatre skills.
