WESTONING PLAYERS
HOME

WOULD YOU LIKE TO TAKE PART IN A NICE SOCIABLE HOBBY?
    We have a lot of fun and satisfaction in our Amateur Drama..3
       You don't have to step in the LimeLight to be a valued part of our drama  group....
             (... we have plenty of "Prima Donnas" already - and that's just the blokes!)

Westoning Players also seek people with desire, the skills and aptitude in :-

# Directing "The Director is someone who supervises the actors and the action of the play or show..."
# Producing  "The producer organises and co-ordinates the non-acting aspects with the director."
# Stage-managing/scenery-shifting
# Script-writing, story-adaptation and sketch creation.
# Scenery-construction – wood-working, painting & sewing, cutting & sticking, nailing and screwing...
# Helping backstage at rehearsals & performances, ensuring people & things go where they should
# Creating stage properties (props) and "dressing" the sets with appropriate "clutter" and detail.
# Design/make/fit/maintaining/washing/cleaning costumes and accessories
# Designing/adapting/applying make-up, wigs and prosthetics
# Selling raffle tickets at performances, or serving tea, nuts, chocolate, wine, beer and sympathy
# Catering in the kitchen – rehearsals as well as performances!
# Watching rehearsals – constructive comment always welcome
# Helping behind the bar at performances
# Helping the audience find their seats and acting as public safety guides
# Collecting coffee money ………….. the list is pretty-much endless.

Come on down and have a chat. On a Thursday evening between 8pm - 10pm
NB: Experience coping with the following would be very useful :-
     -  Terrible-Twos Tantrums,
     -  Teenage Angst,
     -  Category "A" inmates... etc

Endless patience and ability to cope with Sociopathic Egos and Megalomania is desirable. (This is show business after all.)

     .... as would be Care of the Elderly ... (joke)  but we do provide for on-the-job learning.        :-)

                                                                                        WPs call it participation.....

                             Please come on DOWN... and "sink or swim"... at the deep end ... with the rest of us.

Laughter is therapeutic. Giggling releases endorphins.
 (Hysteria is optional.)
 

      PS: Strong pharmaceutical preparations are a very useful adjunct.... under medical supervision of course.
             Or alcohol in moderation. (Mine's a pint of Guiness. And I'm only the website bloke!)
