Community theatre, as so many people have discovered over the years, is a great way to participate in both community and theatre through the theatre experience from behind the scenes or in front of an audience! Meet, work, socialize, and have fun with all kinds of interesting people.
Have you ever sat in the audience and wondered how a play goes from script to the live performance before you? The answer is…with the help of people like you! Throughout our past season, a per-play average of 25-50 people were involved in helping the Players ‘create the illusion’ and bring to life the Director’s vision of his or her play.
Can’t act, you say? Have never been involved in theatre before?
There are many things you can do that don’t require being on stage. Perhaps you could help build or dress sets; piece together costumes; beg, borrow, make, and/or change props; help the front-of-house staff; take tickets; design play programs; make phone calls; solicit advertising; record minutes; arrange workshops…..the list goes on and on.
But, I don’t have any experience!
Experience is not necessary. You learn as you go, right along with the rest of us.
If we’ve convinced you to help ‘create the illusion’, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call our hotline at 465-PLAY (7529), leave your name, phone number, the area you would like to become involved in and we will contact you as soon as possible . If you just want to help support community theatre, that’s fine too. Either way, there are many benefits of membership in Dartmouth Players. For only $10.00 a season, membership entitles you to:
- Participate in any of our productions
- Receive our newsletter
- Vote at general meetings
Come be a part of community theatre!
