Our theatre improvement project
Drawing on Club members' and users' skills will help us substantially cut the cost of Dibble Tree improvements, as well as raise those much needed funds!
The 'Dibble Database' is a growing record of the many ways in which members (full and honorary) and other theatre users can support the Next Stage.
DIY talent: Can you paint, plumb, hammer or saw? Can you help rip out the old? Do a trip to the dump? Brush up the sawdust? All levels of 'expertise' welcome!
Fundraising talent: Can you bake, make, create? Can you distribute fliers, man a stall, do a sponsored silence? Perhaps you'll consider being part of a small fundraising committee to co-ordinate our efforts?
The Next Stage can only happen with full club support.
Our club. Our theatre. Let's do this!

Behind the Scenes

A few years ago the theatre club put on one of a collection of entertaining plays called “Deckchairs”.

This involved making the audience believe they were on a warm, sunny, sandy beach in summer. No mean feat for late September!

Although “Deckchairs” had only two people on stage at any one time, a veritable army of people had collaborated over the previous months to create that warm, sunny, sandy beach in summer.

They covered many areas and included:- producer, stage manager, stage crew, set designer, lighting manager, sound engineer, props, wardrobe, make-up, publicity, ticket and box office staff, front of house manager, the list is endless.

Without these people there would have been no show. So, remember, belonging to a theatre club can encompass many different interests, from simply going to the Theatre, through to set design!

If you are looking for a new interest, why not get in touch. And if treading the boards or making costumes etc is your dream then perhaps we can help make it a reality. Let us make good use all those hidden talents.
