At the Chesil Theatre there is so much going on! The theatre is always looking for new members to join and to get involved. So come and have a look and see what we do at our monthly What's Behind the Little Red Door? open mornings. The doors are open every first Saturday of the month.
If you are interested in what we do and want to join in on the fun, don't hesitate to click JOIN US below to be transported to a membership form, or contact our membership team via email at: email@example.com
Being an active member doesn't mean you have to be a performer, although if you are cast in a production you will need to become a member. You can bring your skills and learn new ones at the same time. This video gets a flavour of what roles there are for anyone wanting to join: Video available soon!
We have around 250 members but auditions and readings are open to everyone, newcomers included. No previous experience is required, just turn up.
Apart from the director, producer and cast each show also needs designers for set, sound, lighting and costume. Can you help or do you know someone else who can?
A stage manager runs the show with a team of assistants and operators. Front of house are bar staff and greeters. They’re all vital elements of the society and you too can be part of it. Does this sound like your cup of tea?
There are a variety of roles – sourcing props, marketing or helping the youth sections. We have set building and wardrobe groups that meet weekly and training is available. Unfortunately, as the society is amateur and meets mostly in the evening, we are unable to offer formal work experience to students.
