Leeds Children's Theatre produce at least two shows every year, staged at The Carriageworks. As a society we are dedicated to the principle of quality affordable children's entertainment, in order to encourage the introduction of the theatrical experience for young children.
The group is staffed entirely by volunteers who offer their vast range of experience to the younger members, covering most aspects of theatrical production.The Leeds Children's Theatre committee is democratically elected and includes youth/junior representatives as well as the usual officers and officials.
Our popular Saturday morning drama workshops offer an excellent introduction to our group.

We are looking for new members. If you are interested please contact our secretary Tel 0114 2550951 or come along to rehearsals at our new church building Meersbrook Park United Reformed Church & Centre Chesterfield Road, every Friday at 7.30pm
The Society was formed in 1926 for the young people of Meersbrook Park Congregational Church. Over the years we have become one of the few societies that solely present the Gilbert and Sullivan comic operas.
The shows used to be presented in the 'tin hut' on Chesterfield Road and then in the schoolroom off Beeton Road. However just over 10 years ago our church was condemned and we moved to Norton Parish Hall. A few years later this was sold and houses are now on the site. We then moved to our current location at Dronfield Civic Centre. The society is open to anyone who would like to be involved either on stage or behind the scenes, just contact our Chairman on Steve Hibbert on 07703 174237 or see our website or find us on Facebook

We are always looking for new members to join in our productions (a pantomime in February and a main musical in September).
If you're interested in singing, dancing or acting, then a warm welcome awaits you.

Behind every successful production there is a small army of members and helpers, their talents cover costume making, set building, sourcing and making props, scenery painting and the administration and running of the society. If time doesn't allow you this level of commitment, then we always need help during the week of the production, e.g. stage hands and programme and refreshment sellers.

One Off Productions


Hull

 

We're a relatively new company - quickly gaining a reputation in theatre circles for producing high quality drama and musical theatre in the UK. We pride ourselves on not settling for second best - and giving audiences a night to remember. We love a challenge - and hate "safe" and "predictable" theatre. With the finest performers, the most sought after technical team and our artistic director Jonathan Parker - we strive for perfection.
What have we done?
It all started with a production of the musical "Witches of Eastwick" which received much critical acclaim. We then visited the Edinburgh Festival with a drama about writer Jack Kerouac which received 4 stars in The Scotsman. Our last major production was "The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas" in October 2009.
How can I get involved?
We're always on the look out for new performers and technical staff - and would love you to get in touch. Auditions are held on a regular basis.

Otley Community Players


Otley, West Yorkshire

 

Email: otleycommunityplayers@googlemail.com
New members (aged 16 and over) are always welcome at OCP - whether you fancy having a go at acting, lighting, music, writing, stage management, prop design and manufacture, costumes, or just helping out in general. We're also often looking for experienced directors who we can learn from.
There is no annual members subscription, but everyone involved in a production pays a subscription towards the cost of that production.
We usually perform two plays a year: in summer and one around Otley Victorian Fayre in early December. We're organised on an informal basis: everyone can have a say in which plays we perform. We're keen on performing original material written specially for OCP by local writers or by writers from within our group.
There are no auditions for actors. If you'd like to have a go at acting then we'll support you.
